    Do you think people would make as big as a deal if this was Gus or mcgregor testing positive for coke and low t/e, do you think people would be forgiving or less forgiving? After all, this is the same place where everybody brings up jones DUI, but never mentions the fact Gus used to beat up women and rob people, yet he gets a pass because he was a "kid" (he got sentenced at 18, so he was a grown ass man).

    I can't speak for others but if I happened to stumble across this stuff or this stuff was being leaked I would approach it the same.

    Jones is the champ and that makes it a bigger story for me.

    Gus would've been reemed. People don't want him to get his hands on Jones again. People where literally clamoring for the Rumble fight, even when Rumble was faced with charges and Gus had the rightful title shot lined up etc. It is whatever people have invested interest in. People want Jones to win and they know Gus can stop that from happening.

    It would be a big deal if it was McGregor. Not as big a deal if it was Gus. It's because Jones is the champ. It would be just as bad if this happened to Weidman.

    I don't really care who does coke between fights. I would expect probably no less than one quarter of the fighters use cocaine between fights (recreationally), and probably a lot more than that. They live a lifestyle that gives lump sum payouts followed by large portions of time off before they need to work again. It is a party-powered lifestyle.

    That being said, I fucking love Coke-Gate.

    Jones T/E levels make me giddy with anticipation.

    And no, I wouldn't care if it was Gus in his place.

    Lmao are you joking? Everybody and their mama on sherdog want to see jones lose to Gus so bad. Surely your in fantasy land my man lol. Also all these Gus nuthuggers are looking past rumble from what I've seen, they make it sound like Gus is automatically gonna win or something all because he had a close fight with jones. In fact, other then the jones fight which he lost, he hasn't beaten any of notice. Who has Gus beat, besides shogun. Jimi manuwa? Lol

    Beating up women... He pushed a girl and got in a fight and beat up her brother. Really bad of course but he wasn't "beating up women". On this topic it's strange Rumble hasn't received nearly as much heat for actually beating women.

    The DUI is bad and it happened when Jones was a young adult (already UFC champ) so therefore it says more about him as an adult than beating someone when he was a teenager. Of course Gus crime was worse but he was also younger and changed his whole life after this and is a completely different person today. Same can't really be said about Jon.

    On topic I don't think he would get as much heat simple because he isn't champ and isn't as famous as Jones. Jones is by many considered the GOAT and if he is a PED user it would really tarnish his legacy and his achivements. Gus hasn't got Jones legacy and would just be one of many great fighters who got caught using.

    No, because Jones is a bigger deal than Gus. Whenever both does the same thing, it's a bigger deal with Jones.

    Gus would get a pass, he's a repeat convicted felon for assault and he gets a pass.

    McGregor would be praised for coke usage.

    So Gus has beaten people like machida, rampage (younger), rashad, and Cormier? Who has Gus beat that was top 10?
