    He might not have known that they aren't supposed to test for recreational drugs out of competition.

    Like many of us learned after it happened.

    Why would he take action against Nevada for releasing the results it's their to release the documents of failed test results.

    If anyone else did this (except for maybe mcGOAT), UFC would have suspended or released them.

    because there is not supposed for the comission to test recreational drugs, those are not banned out of competition, they already said test that drugs was a mistake, were not supossed to being tested, they messed up the test

    This is interesting to see which ridiculous Sherdog phenomenon weighs more heavily right now: McGregor's nuts or Jones hate.

    But the results of tests are free for public use. Jon has no grounds to complain.

    I caught that on the add. You're right, you don't list the excuses you're not gonna use, you just don't use them.

    The problem was the comission testing something they was not supossed to test !!!

    This hurt Jon image and legacy bigtime, the comission made a heavy mistake testing drugs they were not supossed to test

    Learn the difference between an excuse and reason for an occurrence. Jones said he would not make excuses but did not say he would not give you reasons for the possible occurrences and why it happened.

    If Jones is not going to give the reporter reasons on the issue, then why have the interview. An excuse is to avoid the blame and a reason is giving you a detail issue of why it happened/occurred.
