    It seems awfully suspicious that the UFC decides to stop drug testing at the exact same time that their most marketable fighter gets popped for cocaine and also has a highly suspicious T/E ratio. Perhaps the UFC decided to stop drug testing not because of Cung Le, which is an old issue, but rather because they can't afford to keep losing big name fighters like Jon Jones.

    The UFC knew about Jon's results all month and deliberately announced that they were going to stop random drug testing before they announced Jon's results. Timing it that way, it was easier to pin the drug testing decision on Cung Le and to then ship Jon to rehab for cocaine, while sweeping the strange T/E ratio under the rug.

    If you think up a Jon Jones thread, and you aren't trolling, its already been done.

    I asked the exact same question and got two responses.

    I agree, but not many others see the timing as suspicious.

    It was actually a demand that Jon had made. He said that he'd play the game this time, but in the future he needs to be able to enjoy his hookers and blow.

    This has been mentioned on Twitter numerous times too. It's pretty much common knowledge at this point on WHY the UFC handed off the testing duties.

    The ufc simply stopped handling the drug testing like they did for cung le

    they are paying the commisions and/or a 3rd party to do it now so they cant be blamed for any mistakes

    Maybe you are misinformed, or maybe your parents were related before marriage, but the Cung Lee incident is far bigger than this one.
