    We've been hearing a lot of hoopla about Brock Lesnar lately but we don't even know how long Jones will be out. 2 to 4 years has been mentioned.

    They are waiting as long as possible so the reaction to the ridiculously soft punishment won't scream corruption.

    LOL at the corruption accusations, as if it wasn't just Jones's team stalling because they can't find any excuse. They know he'll get the guideline four years, why would they rush anything?

    the man was the commissioner... didn't just have friends in the commission

    the man intentionally kept mma from being sanctioned, bought it for a cheap price of 2 million dollars, and flipped it for 4 billion.

    Common knowledge for any real mma fan

    @dimspace answers this about weekly. somewhere in his post history you can find where he lists a dozen or so suspensions that took over 200 days, and a few over 300 days.

    the more the fighter protests, isn't cooperative, lawyers up, etc, the longer it takes. JJ is doing all those things. hence, it's taking longer than usual.

    so the answer is a) we don't know and b) that doesn't necessarily mean something nefarious or disreputable is underfoot.

    EDIT: one last thing. this is not a court of law. so all those Grisham books you read and Law & Order shows you watched during college that make you a great internet forum lawyer do not apply here, even more than usual.
