    This is bs. Dana protects Jon until two days after the fight. So he can tell him how to handle it.



    Also tested twice and failed both even tho one sample was watered down.

    Wouldn't this have effected the betting odds? Seems like a good way to make money. Someone should file a lawsuit.

    I've not so quietly disliked Jones but I dont think this is really an issue. Cocaine might have some benefits for prepping(lots of downside risk too) but I dont really consider it a factor in the fight which is what I care(I use that term loosely) about. His low testosterone ratio is what people need to dig deeper into.

    This is on the commission more so than on the UFC. It also could be a violation of HIPPA as well. At the very least it is a serious ethical violation. The promoter shouldn't be notified by the commission before the combatant if at all. The promoter should not have discretion as to when the combatant is informed. This really is a big deal.

    what's worse someone doing coke which isn't even banned or trt being legal? Because the latter really happened.

    100% this.

    Coke is a non-issue.

    Reminds me of the time that the state of Nevada held off Floyd Mayweather going to jail, so that he could fight.

    I believe it... I feel like Jon would have tried to have a little bit of class if he knew what was coming.


    But that could also be the reason Dana all of a sudden suggested that Jones "embrace the heel role". B/c he knew what was coming.

    He shouldn't have been tested for that to begin with:

    Agreed. I made this point in another thread, but what if we were dealing with someone who tested positive for a type of medicine that's banned in competition but not out? Would the AC release that information (to the UFC or the public or whatever), thus telling people about a fighter's medical condition? It's easy to shrug this one off because he was caught doing an illegal drug, but this has greater implications, imo.

    Same idiots complaining would've bitched endlessly if the UFC cancelled the fight cause Jones failed a test for coke.

    Kind of strange as well, if it is not a banned substance out of competition, then why was it tested since it was out of competition.

    The only thing I can think of is that it is a standardized test, and easier to run the same test, then make a special test which does not include certain substances.

    Yeah im glad the fight wasn't cancelled regardless. He still might get suspended according to the article stating that his post-fight drug test results haven't been released. That would be news.

    the article said the only reason this failed test came to light was bbecause someone made a public records request for jones' drug test....I wonder who made the request?

    I don't blame them. This is a personal issue that doesn't change what would happen inside the cage. Do you really want a guy to have a huge personal issue pop up before a huge fight, game, event? UFC did the right thing here instead of adding distraction.
