    Knowing he's just recently signed with the company, outside of the contract the UFC has setup with Reebok to sponsor their uniforms, will his recent positive cocaine test cost him this new sponsor? This is certainly much more damaging then the scuffle he and Cormier got into, which he claimed (lied under oath) cost him his Nike contract.


    Weed is one thing, cocaine is another animal altogether. It's considered to be a hard drug by any rational person in the mainstream, and certainly is a much more serious issue then recreational marijuana smoking, which has cost some fighter's their jobs or careers.

    Will this new trouble cost Jones a lot more than a week in rehab, or will Reebok being a third-rate sports company not worry about their sponsored athlete being a full-blown uncontrolled drug addict?



    Of course I'm not serious with the drug addict thing, but this is far far too good, especially with how dreadful jones-huggers have been the past few days.

    80% of the cocaine users will make use of the drug throughout all their lives. He's probably using this shit since ever.

    It shouldnt considering Reebok has sponsored admitted drug dealers like Jay-Z and 50 Cent.

    It would be a positive sign if big companies would begin ostracizing these law breakers.

    Why are you not serious about the drug addict thing? checking in to rehab is a public admission of having a drug problem. The difference between having a drug problem and being an addict is merely semantics.

    Might cost him his life, which is worth about the same as the Reebok deal

    I'm partial to avoid fighter bashing when possible. Generally frowned upon, it's doubley good to tread lightly when dealing with a card like Jones.

    Rick Ross loses Reebok Deal

    Don't be so sure, the Teflon Don got dropped for something far less offensive.

    Hmm interesting. Reebok isn't going to like this.

    But they're not going to like dropping him either.

    He's the hottest thing in mma right now.

    That was clearly more offensive than drug related issues.

    No, most certainly not. Unless you're a feminist, in which case not even ISIS videos would be more offensive.

    I do drugs and I listen to GG Allin and Anal ****, I'm not going to be much offended on a personal scale. But when it comes to a mainstream rapper and some sponsorship deal, I strongly believe that this kind of rape comments are worst than drug related issues.
