    Mauro Ranallo has been present first-hand for some of the greatest times in MMA and continues to be a top commentator and analyst in the sport. However, that does not mean that someone so deeply immersed in the professional side of the sport can not be as angry and confused like us fans are when they heard about Jon Jones' positive drug test for Cocaine.

    He's just in a manic phase. I found what he said echoed a lot of my feelings as well, though.

    Also, it's funny people voted "None". Really, you find NOTHING that he has to say has merit?

    Don't agree. You can fire a random can over drug test results, but you can't fire the GOAT fighter. Jones earned his double standards. In fact, it's even more impressive that he won while partying heavy with coke during training.

    Still think Gus beats him in the rematch in a fight of the decade. Don't care about Jones' cocaine use as long as he puts on amazing performances.

    He rambled about how he doesn't like what happened, OK.

    Not really that insightful.

    He sounds like one of those people Bill Burr made fun of on Conan. He called them professionally outraged. "It's r-r-r-r-reprehensible... it's... it's.... it's OUTRAGEOUS!!" Who gives a fuck. Jones puts boot to ass whether on coke or not.

    Yet he had no problems with Pride when everyone was dangerously juiced to the gills. Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

    Well first of all, whether him being upset is to your liking or not, he's not wrong about Jones. Second, his statements on the failing of the commission is fair. Furthermore, his whole concern regarding the situation in general is valid.

    I agree with Mauro only a little. Him, like many other people, have made too much of this.

    Jones tested positive for a recreational drug out of competition, the UFC probably knew about it but kept the ppv on for money purposes. Nothing to see here, move on.

    If Jon dies from cocaine abuse it's his fault, not the UFC's, even if they knew about it. They shouldn't even be testing for that shit unless there aren't any public consequences. It's none of our business what these guys do in their public lives, its disgusting that we even know he did cocaine.

    Mayweather had had all sorts of criminal problems in his past, even recently, yet not only is he not regarded as a black eye to boxing, he's practically the only thing keeping the sport relevant. I can't argue the right or wrong of it, but with that example, this Jones thing doesn't necessarily need to be more than a footnote.
