    Still winning and staying a step ahead of the law. He's got momentum going into the USADA case.

    He's making his way the only way he knows how. That's just a little bit more than the law will allow.

    He should come back to this song:

    Looking forward, not back.

    Turning the page.

    Going to stay positive.

    Can't be concerned with the haters.

    I mean he stayed out of the pen and didn't violate his probation or whatever, right? So it is still a win. lol. It would look bad if he had to make his case from prison.

    Taking a plea deal does not necessarily mean you're guilty of what you were accused of. I'm not defending Jones. Plea deals just save the headache of going to court and spending money on lawyers. It's kind of joke really if you've ever seen it.

    As every week go's by the reality of a Jones return increases.

    That aside the UFC should strip him of this interim title but they know if he returns they want him in the UFC. It would only take a break away from 2 or 3 stars to make a rival promotion a ratings juggernaut. Conor ,Bones and Rousey go to Bellator and the rest of the roster would follow..

    UFC standing by Jones...Connor could go rogue any time..

    Say what you want about Jones but the cop who put him in this particular situation is a douchebag, it is bullshit he is having to deal with all these issues because some guy was on a power trip when he revved his engine
