In the interest of fairness why does Aldo get a pass and Jones doesn't?

    First of all, I don't like Jones. I dislike any drug cheat. In fact I work in a lab that analyses blood and urine samples all the time.

    My issue is why does one get ridiculed for hiding under a cage to avoid a drug test whereas the other doesn't for having a drug tester thrown out of the country, and then on the second attempt trips and spills his urine rendering it useless - essentially buying himself more time. I mean it's an awfully big coincidence. I know Aldo is glorified and within reason because he's been a great fighter for a long time but why are some fighters given a free pass on here and others aren't? Hiding under the ring is no different to having someone thrown out of the country at exactly the time he was planning to test Aldo.

    Aldo has 1 strike.

    Bones has 17.

    I mean, the dude is my favourite fighter to watch, so maybe I'm extra hard on him for depriving me of the entertainment I am ENTITLED to by fucking up over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over, but the numbers don't lie.

    Here's why: Aldo actually hasn't failed a drugs test

    Unauthorised drug testing is a huge risk to any fighter.

    If the tester had done his homework and Aldo refused it would be dodgy as hell. But this is all on the tester.

    One could assume it was these coincidences that stopped him from failing one. It's quite possible. The W/L ratio at that gym post USADA is also a big coincidence.

    Not 17 strikes. 10+ strikes and has struck out 3 times as I recall.
    2 failed tests.
    1 stripped for the hit and run.
    I feel like there is another

    How can't I be? The incidences are identical. 1v.1. I'm not talking about their entire careers, why do people have trouble understanding that?

    Would you submit a blood test to someone that didn't have the proper paperwork to be asking you for it?

    You know what isn't a coincidence on Sherdog? Bad threads like these

    Aldo on the beach with no cell phone.

    A classic that has been swept under the rug.

    Awfully convenient to come to this logic when it's an issue regarding a fan favourite. Not everything should be swept under the rug.

    I don't get paid to collect. The pay is incredible as a lot is riding on these results. You fuck up a test and millions could be on the line. I prefer to keep sports and workplaces drug free over pumping gas or bagging groceries like most sherdoggers.
