    lets say hypothetically that the whole wandy thing never happened. and jones ran away from his test instead of taking it and just pissing hot. do you think that jones would have a lifetime ban from competition like wandy does right now? i mean i guess it could really be anybody but I'm just putting jones in here because to me it looks like he's being protected because of who he is. would the same go for georges, or andy silva? what about if cain did it? what do you guys think?

    Didn't he duck a test by hiding under the cage anyway? No repercussions

    I call bs,remember when they made overeem fly to a different country to get a test taken.If your not available for the test I believe its just an automatic fail.

    What if Wand didn't run away? Do you think he would've gotten a lifetime ban? Especially for a "diuretic?" lol

    Come on man, why make up a whole "what if" scenario for no good reason.

    How is he being protected? The commission made up the rules. And on the pre-fight test he passed. It isn't like he got busted for possession by the police. And he is going to rehab. Wand is a steroids cheater. Where is the ruling that Jones has steroids or masking agents in his body?

    Bottom line is that you are just a crybaby loser.

    Uh, I think I touched a nerve there. You're obviously asking this question to prove a point that they were after Wand/stars get better treatment. You could've just asked, not made up this scenario.

    But to answer your question, if Jones ran away the way Wand did, I think he would've gotten banned for 5 years, and maybe even life. This goes for any champion. What Wand did is way worse than failing a test. And for some odd reason, he decided to admit to taking banned substances. No idea why he did that.

    And to answer the real question here, yes, big stars get preferential treatment. But Silva was a big star too.

    And Jones never pissed hot or failed a test. He's not being protected.

    Exactly.

    This? Not sure if true though. I tend to believe it but no evidence besides hearsay.

    The .19/1 megathread has it in the OP.

    But yeah, these are just rumors as of now. Greg Savage gave the nod but thats as much as we know.

    Silva retired before he was sentenced so I don't know that lifetime vs 6 month or a year really mattered.
    As for Jones I'm not sure that the UFC is really trying to protect their most notoriously hated fighter. I think DC was really supposed to replace him as the all American good guy.

    After the Gus fight, it was obvious to a lot of people the goat was being protected.

    Overeem ducked bad, he went straight to the airport and flew back to Amsterdam. He didn't take another LEGIT test until WAY later, long enough for everything to clear his system. The UFC didn't look to make an example of him, though, since they still needed him for some big fights. Wand was already washed up and no big loss to throw him under the bus. Fight with Chael was already scrapped when Wand got his punishment.
