    5 in the 3rd quarter, 7 in the 4th quarter of 2018.

    No tests at all in the first 2 quarters of 2018.

    Isn't that strikingly odd for someone who was under suspension (during investigation) for testing positive for PEDs? It seems that everyone under USADA should be tested at least once per quarter, and those under investigation probably more, not less. And repeat offenders, even more?

    A newcomer to the UFC has to be under USADA for 6 months before competing. Theoretically then, they might not be tested even once during this time?

    People are really struggling to accept that Jon was innocent.

    They may not have tested in the immediate aftermath due to the fact that he would have had the drug in his system. Whether or not they even bother testing him in the future will be interesting to see, since they likely won't actually do anything when he tests positive again.

    Even if Jones was innocent, the fact that USADA only started testing him 2018 after others pointed out that he hadn't been tested adds fuel to the idea that he cheated and the USADA was conspiring to support him.

    How in the world would this subject make him LOOK innocent? Waiting...

    There is no evidence Jones is innocent.

    the way they've handled the Jones situation is ruining their credibility.

    He wasn't tested from October of 2017 to August of 2018, which I think should null and void a retroactive suspension (given that suspended fighters get randomly tested during their suspensions throughout the entire length).

    Those who have looked closest at this think there is some evidence. Or else they wouldn’t have taken the positions they have.

    in 2016 the arbitration panel found the jones met his burden under to establish by a balance of the probabilities that a product that he took was contaminated and was the cause of his adverse analytical finding.

    2017 the arbitrator actually said "the evidence available leads me to conclude that the violation was not intended nor could it have enhanced the Athlete's performance. There was absolutely no intention to use prohibited substances on the part of the athlete.”

    In 2018 eichner said his positive result was most likely residual.

    Again, you can conclude the evidence is stronger that he did cheat. That’s fine. But everyone ignores what has actually been said by the people who matter most.

    The obvious question is why would usada conspire to support one guy?

    Does it matter? Even when he fails they say it's all good, why test him at all?
