    It's rather simple, you strip him of the title and declare his last fight a N/C. There was no title at stake, but Pride the declared the Gomi/Diaz fight a N/C after Diaz tested positive for the ganja.

    They wont. UFC protects their starts. If this happened to a mid-tier fighter, they'd be gone. But JJ? haha, UFC "sympathizes" with him.

    They dont, they wont, he's money.

    Nobody has to respect him. Outside of front-running fanboys, nobody does.

    This is where rich people and normal people are treated different. This is why Mitt Romney claims "you are all jealous" - because you are.

    Rehab counts as punishment.

    Used to do coke it's no PED if it were it would be on athletic commission's list but it is not hence no punishment.

    Wasteland.

    Pretty sure fining a guy as he goes to rehab would be viewed as a pretty shitty thing to do by most major media markets.


    This is something they can revisit at another time if need be.

    He wasn't on coke or had it in his system during the fight - so why should it be a NC?

    People love using their fallacious moral compass when trying to justify their hate for Jones.

    that's why it was offered to Healy & Riddle to help them get their lives back on track so they could stay in UFC, lol. What a Joke.

    He's in rehab bruv that's the punishment. We see movie stars get that all the time. Jones is a star, that's what he gets. If this was a scrub like Ben Askren or something then he would get punished more severely.

    I hate this checking into rehab stuff, it makes a mockery of people who actually have serious addictions to drugs.

    That's just a slap on the wrist, UFC needs to send loud n clear message they are anti drugs.

    Not only should he be stripped n last fight should be nc, all his fights should be cn cause we have no idea how long back he's been doing this. All his fights should be ruled nc expect of course Matt Hamill fight

    Bones new record should be

    Yeah, punish someone for wanting to get high. How 1987.

    And he had "trace amounts". He wasn't fighting while on the drug.
