    Sue them for the cocaine and his ass gets dragged with T/E ratio and futher tests to spot the PED use.

    The cocaine bit was actually a good thing for Jones and I

    I don't get that even Dana is bringing up that he shouldn't have been tested for it like he was unlucky to get caught or some s**t. Your 205 champ was snorting f**king coke.

    "You revealed I did something illegal!"

    Yea, that'll work.

    A person can sue if another releases information that damages that person's body, reputation, etc.

    Remember Chris Rock sued a woman that said that he impregnated her. He had to go through paternity tests and discovered that he was not the father.

    He might technically have a case, but consider:

    - suing the US government is a helluva thing. A SAC counts as part of the government, and it's the same entity that licenses Bones to fight. It's a bad idea to bite the hand that feeds you.

    - he had a cocaine problem, not just using coke once or trace amounts sprinkled in his coffee. From a report I read, it was only a matter of time that Jon be caught, as he was partying regularly with coke and his associates knew about it.

    - it's still an illegal substance. Unless he wants other government agencies getting on his ass and hounding him, admitting fault and going to rehab is much better than trying to fight it. Go for the reduced, easy punishment now rather than let it ride and face real fines and prison down the road.

    As I understand it, there's nothing wrong with testing for the cocaine. It's part of the WADA full menu test. It's not banned out of competition so they can test for it, they just can't discipline him for it.

    He could also sue the UFC for using his terrible personality to sell the Cormier fight and not sweeping his dui under the rug.

    Poor Jon, it seems everyone is out to get him.

    Yes and he should. He would win no doubt about it.

    The only case he would have is that they released private information that damaged his reputation.

    As far as I know, it wasn't released until he himself entered rehab.
