    Well it certainly brings some water to those who have thought the UFC has the NSAC in their pocket's mill..

    Well, I guess the UFC did say they're turning into an entertainment company and not a legit fighting organization. The UFC is turning MMA into a joke. Using their monopoly to take all the best talent, then treating them like theyre in the WWE.

    Yes, because the UFC didn't want to mess with their biggest bout in years. With all the lackluster PPV numbers they needed this one. Is this reasonable? Yes. Logical? Yes. Morally correct? No, it isn't.

    i don't know the answer, but it wasn't a month, they got word of it on like the 23rd or something, and the test never should have been done for coke.

    the whole thing is just weird.

    the nsac nevre should have tested for coke, and they knew they had no grounds to punish jones, so i dont know what the norm should have been.

    According to MMAFighting the only reason this information was released is due to a public records request. I find it far more likely the UFC had no intentions of releasing this information. They just released a statement in reaction to it going public outside of their control.

    This is completely ignorant. He did not test positive for an illegal substance.

    His blood showed by-products/metabolites of cocaine, not cocaine itself. There is no follow up because the metabolite is not banned, and cocaine, while illegal and a stimilulant in competiton, is not a PED for training.

    Vitor got popped for PED use. No comparison.

    There has been no concrete information released that says the UFC even knew about the test. Why do idiots like you speculate instead of finding the answer yourself?

    If it was out of competition and he was technically allowed to do it, would the fight have gotten cancelled in any way?

  14. If he wasn't obligated to submit to a test for cocaine, why were the results released?

    OK. The very fact that a question this rhetorical can be asked suggests that the answer is that MMA fans are so out of touch with reality that the answer might simply be "why the fuck not".

    But I suspect the real answer is that it's good for business. And they're a business. No MMA rules were broken so they intelligently decided to get everybody paid at the risk of ruffling a few Sherdog feathers.

    Do you think that's really the wrong decision for a business to make? Remember, they're not the DEA or the police.

    Your drug test results are released to the public in under two weeks? Can you link a source so we can see them?

    It's like Michael Phelps recently. Busted for a DUI and checked in rehab pretty quickly.

    Because he doesn't test positive for an out of competition banned substance.

    Because they were thinking about Jon Jones the person, not about what this does to the image of the sport. He's a human being for crying out loud and needs to get help for Jon Jones the person.

    (Absolutely fucking painful to watch that interview)
