Why is it taking so long for Jones' tests to be confirmed?

    On July 18th, it came out the Jones tested positive in a out of competition test for 2 estrogen blockers. Clomiphene and Letrazole, which are both estrogen blockers. Both of these drugs are prescription only. In the athletic world, estrogen blockers are used to mask the affects of a PED cycle and to keep fighters from throwing off their T/E ratio. This is the only reason people use it, and that can be backed up by Chael Sonnen and Brock Lesnar's test results. Clomiphene costs an average of 40$ per cycle. Letrazole costs approximately 20$-80$ for 30 pills. The fact that these are Pharmceutical grade drugs, and that their costs to put them in a supplement would be financially untenable. Usually when a supplement company puts a steroid in their products, it is usually a new designer steroid in which tests for might be limited and might not even be on banned lists. The tainted supplement argument is complete bullshit when you look at the facts. They also are going to put something in their products that actually works like a AAS, not a estrogen blockers that won't do much by themselves.

    SUMMARY: Jones can't use the tainted supplement argument because the substances in which he tested positive for would be extremely cost prohibitive for the supplement company to even put in. Add the fact that these are prescription drugs, the only way Jones could acquired these drugs is through a Doctor or a black market connection.

    Add all the rumor's of him ducking tests, his suspicious T/E ratios when he tested positive for cocaine, and this all points to his potential PED usage.

    If Jones would have admitted it, he might get better PR then trying to deny it. The guy has a clear responsibility issue and it he always makes it seem like he is the victim in every issue. Instead of lying over and over Jones, the MMA community would have more respect for you if just were out front and admitted that you broke the rules and looked for an unfair advantage.

    Several weeks after UFC 200, USADA still has not laid out its punishment. What gives? What is the point of testing if it takes weeks to get results? When will we hear from USADA?

    They need to formulate an excuse to suspend him for just 6 months.

    His OJ Simpson-like legal team is working on their millionth defense of Jones' myriad of fuck-ups.

    its called due process

    first hes informed of the charge and given the option of the b sample test

    if the b-sample is positive then....

    jones is informed of b-sample positive and given a chance to respond. maybe he had prescribed meds, or they discover a supplement etc....

    typically that response time will be 14-21 days but it can be extended if required

    once they respond USADA will then decide whether to formally charge them with a doping offence

    if so, they will be notified and again will be given an opportunity to either accept that charges and any ban, or request a hearing

    again, they may be given 14-21 days to make a decision on that part of the process

    then either the ban is handed down, or arrangements are made for arbitration, arbitrators booked etc

    jones team will be informed of an arbitration date (generally 14 days notice minimum) but of course jones team could request that delayed

    all the time there will be ongoing negotiations to try and get a lessar ban etc .

    For someone talking to just hear themselves talk, your language is amazingly weak.

    He is suspended pending the conclusion so no need for them to rush the process.

    Viagra and Cialis is easily made in a lab. Clomiphene and Letrazole would never be in a boner pill anyways.

    They are trying to get their BS straight. They know they need a good line of bullshit to justify Brock fighting and Jon being pulled. Brocks already back wrasslin

    Malki Kawa has been driving around the country buying every supplement he can lay his hands on in the hopes that one of them contains estrogen blockers.

    He could be holding it up in litigation.

    The B sample is probably tested by now... but as long as he is disputing the length of the ban & whatnot... USADA will not release the results.
