    In my opinion the UFC and Dana have stooped to an all time low. Bones get popped Dec. 4th, almost a full month before the fight and nothing gets mentioned much less done until the fight is over. What's the point in doing drug tests if there are no reprucussions. By their actions all the UFC is saying there are two sets of rules, one for champs and cash cows, the second for marginal and on the fringe fighters. What kind of message is the UFC sending out to their fighters and future fighters on the payroll, and for the fans of the sport? The UFC has lost all credibility with me with their inaction regarding their handling of Jones postive drug test.

    Zuffa is certainly digging their own hole.

    Bad PR.

    Wouldn't mean much in another sport but people already associate MMA with negativity and this doesn't help.

    At this point the UFC kinda reminds me of Denzel by the end of 'Training Day' where people are pretty well just sick and disgusted with them, and about ready to abandon them.

    this is disgusting. Can't believe they would let the fight go on knowing that one of their guys is on cocaine.

    Which is very surprising to me, they (UFC) did a great job marketing and promoting the sport during the golden years. But now in the last 3-4 years they've done a piss poor job and given the sport a black eye, pun intended.

    That and doing absolutely nothing about it. UFC and Dana are beyond contempt.

    I can't believe that they don't understand how bad they look from the public's perspective.

    No different than Roger Goodell "knowing nothing" about the Ray Rice video sent to the NFL offices.

    Dana is no different from the top guys in other sports. They're there to try to protect the business and do damage control. They might not be good at it, but it is their job.

    To a certain extent you're right, but for the most part most of the top executives are also trying to maintain the integrity of their perspective sport.
