    Great look at an issue many journalists are afraid to cover, Jon's suspect testosterone levels that indicate probable steroid use.

    Please read, and share with others who care about PED's in sports and want to know the truth about Jon.

    This article is legit btw, Victor Conte tweeted it at Dana and it finally caused Dana to block him lol

    Share it with fighters and other MMA personalities who are tired of all these PED's in our sport, let's clean it up together.

    Article is bold and fluid, TS.

    It's really odd so many of the bigger outlets aren't even mentioning this yet.

    I think that's a Ronda Rousey quote. Not saying she stated it first, but I'm pretty sure she's said it (referring to Cyborg).

    Maybe they are busy researching before writing their articles. And by research I don't mean send a tweet to Dr. Billy or whatever fucking doctors that hang out on twitter instead of actually working as a doctor.

    Ecelent read. Willingby speaks truth even if the "assault with a deadly weapon" seems a little far-fetched.

    Physicians hang out on social media, too, homie.

    You don't get to be Dr. Oz doing physicals and pap smears all day.

    But I agree with you that the big outlets are holding back out of caution. And the little fish aren't toeing in just yet. If they fuck up this story in the least, those media credentials are getting yanked faster than a Mark Hunt interview.

    This isn't being 'covered' by the larger MMA sites because they actually ask for quotes, official responses and expert opinions, rather than just posting speculation. MMAFighting or Sherdog.com don't gain much by posting 'Jones possibly on PEDs', unless you're asking for click-bait articles.

    Every doctor that has a social media presence or does shitty daytime talk shows is a hack. A real doctor wouldn't make irresponsible comments about areas entirely outside his specialty.

    The big outlets are researching the issue - which is what actual journalists are supposed to do. Double source it. Intervew people who specialise in the field of PED testing, not idiot GPs on twitter.

    You can pretty much guarantee that the first articles about this 'scandal' are poorly researched click bait written by idiots. And if you put a lot of stock in these earliest articles it makes you an idiot too.

    These early articles are definitely not breaking the mould with stuff, and it's mostly just compiling tweets and reorganized facts and summarizing it all together for people instead of having them look for it all themselves.

    And most of the daytime doctors definitely come across a little hacky. It's probably part rust and part just over extending yourself beyond your real specialties. I mean they'll have Gupta talking about anything medical on television while his discipline is neurology if I'm not mistaken

    Agree.

    Imo they need to do the CIR on Jones two urine samples.

    I believe its inevitable, big sports - big pharma. Even in olympics with their strict testing people use PEDs
