    Haha yep. There's a lot of money on the line with Jones and Brock. Wouldn't surprise me at all if they only get a slap on the wrist.

    I suspect that's exactly what's going on unless he's retarded. He is making a deal if he gets 6 months.

    I truly dislike Jones but this is just such a load of bullshit.

    All weight classes have guys of all different dimensions. If they can make the weight, that's their weight class.

    There are a ton of reasons to shit on Jon Jones but that is not one of them.

    There's a good chance he made a deal by ratting someone out for a shorter term.

    How can a food supplement contain clomiphene and letrozole? How is this possible at all?
    This is some serious nonsense. I can't believe a single word out of JJ mouth.

    UFC isn't handling his punishment, USADA is.

    I thought about this last night.

    - The obvious answer is the "tainted supplement" thing. But I guess there was some rumor/chatter that Jones might get 1 year or less. If Team Jones were going down the "tainted supplement" road successfully, then you would think he'd only get 6 months. So I'm not sure that this is where things are going. Unless it's like 6 months for each positive test or something.

    - There's the whole snitching angle. Not sure if this would be a viable route for Jones.

    - Does Jones or Jones' lawyer have dirt on USADA? Not sure.

    - The other thing that came to my mind was a potential "contaminated testing" scenario brought up by Team Jones. Can't assure the quality of the samples, that type of thing. Unless we do the "tainted supplement" thing, this is kind of what I was thinking could be on the table here.

    I think the only way Jones saves his reputation in this instance is a Romero-type tainted supplement deal. A clear-cut situation. If Jones gets off on a "technicality," I think he's still done in terms of public opinion.

    Only one of Jones' brothers is a defensive lineman. He weighs roughly 330 lbs. Jonny ain't close to that.

    I hope he gets 6 months for every eye poke. Unfortunately for him that would be like 20 years.

    The only way it happens is if an error was made by USADA. I don't know how to say it in English but they could have broken the "chain of continuity", meaning they lost track of the sample somewhere. For example, if the USADA guy brings it home and keeps it in the fridge, you can have the entire test voided.

    Of course, it's all speculation. I doubt Jon will be back before at least a year.

    In the scope of celestial time and eternal nothingness, two years is a blink of an eye, we'll see Jonathan very soon indeed.

    Love is Life.

    It does not make sense. Why would a Wookiee, an 8-foot-tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of 2-foot-tall Ewoks? That does not make sense!

    I thought it's the NAC that hands down the final ruling/suspension? The same NAC that Lorenzo was the commissioner of and still has ties in with

    This is what Dana said and it doesn't make much sense. Jones brings-up one month later a new undisclosed supplement ? How can this lead to a valid excuse for the positive test?
