    Forgot the reason why Jones postponed the first fight with DC at their first meeting..some reason for an injury, but forgot which part of the body.

    Anyways, makes me believe that he ducked DC the first time because he wasn't mentally prepared..now that got caught, I'm convinced he used it to prepare for DC.

    Thoughts?

    And to also add..he might've pulled a Melvin Guillard, using coke to make weight. I'm less convinced with that reason though.

    Here are the effects of cocaine:
    Low to moderate doses
    Some of the effects that may be experienced after taking cocaine include:
    immediate rush, feelings of euphoria
    feelings of invincibility
    a sense of wellbeing
    increased talkativeness or quiet contemplation and rapture
    increased confidence and a feeling of invincibility
    feelings of great physical strength and mental capacity
    increased libido
    anxiety, agitation and panic
    paranoia
    upredictable violent/aggressive behaviour
    feeling more awake, reduced need for sleep
    increased performance on simple tasks
    enlarged (dilated) pupils
    dry mouth
    increased breathing rate
    increased blood pressure and heart rate (after initial slowing)
    reduced appetite
    increased body temperature
    increased strength and energy
    indifference to pain and localised pain relief.

    Just don't be surprised if he gets stripped for cheating!

    I'd bet anything he's been doing coke since before he came to the UFC. So I doubt it very much.

    He had legitimate knee surgery. However, I wonder if Jones' trip to Brazil in late November/early December had something to do with the positive test.
