    Whatever "powerful" figure jones has in your personal life please grow a set. You have all been guilty of doing something in your own lives that you have regretted. It's not like he actually has gone out and murdered anyone so please guys be honest and leave the guy alone. He fights well and beats everyone put in front of him...at the end of the day thats what he gets paid to do. Please if your traumatized at something that you've probably done in your life at one time or another...then maybe hypocrite much.

    I don't remember Pat Healy, Matt Riddle, Nick Diaz or Dave Herman murdering anyone either, but they all got punished, didn't they?

    I'm not sure what your point even is, but Jones gets no free pass from the fans. Sorry if you're butt hurt by it, but the hypocrisy isn't with Sherdog posters on this one.

    The only one seeming traumatized is you over the fact that someone you dont even know personally is taking flak. Now thats funny.

    Anyway, I think theres quite a difference between marijuana and coke. Regardless, he tested positive out of competition so who cares.

    Nick Diaz tested positive for a metabolite of a drug that stays in your system for way longer than cocaine does... coke stays in your system for 2-4 days meaning Jon did it very close to the fight

    Can't say I've ever been a role model to children, or the face of a company. When I do things, there are no repercussions because I'm not being held to a higher standard.

    Jones is held to a higher standard, because he makes millions of dollars both for and from a company.

    TS only cares about these issues when someone who isn't White gets hit with something. I agree with you; you can't let Jon Jones off the hook after holding everyone else accountable. Context is everything but illegal drugs are illegal drugs.

    Seems to me you have it backwards. You can get away with taking cocaine, but get caught smoking weed and you're punished.

    If the same test had found weed in Jones' system, I assume he wouldn't be punished because it was out of competition.

    No. It was done out of competition. Relevant text:

    This means he was tested around a month before his actual fight, hence out of competition.
    It's pretty much irrelevant to the fight unless he also did coke on the same night of the fight (which would be speculation).

    Also, I dont really care for Nick smoking pot, I dont believe it increases your performance in anyway unlike cocaine which definately would.

    TS what the fuck are you talking about? Everyone who tested positive for weed were suspended, and got their bonuses taken away. Pat Healy lost 130k for testing positive for weed, yet Bones isn't even fucking suspended.


    Jon Jones is the definition of hypocrisy. The dude claims to be a christian, claims to be a role model, and in his own words "isn't the guy to get a DUI." He actually isn't just the dude to get a DUI, but fail his drug test for cocaine.

    Jon got off fucking easy, and you're crying because fans aren't riding his sack like you and forgiving him right away? Get off his nuts. If he doesn't want fans criticizing him then don't test positive for coke, it's as simple as that.

    He was tested after the fight so there is no way he was on coke during the fight. He was atleast clean for a few days leading up to the fight.
