Flip and get the deets on Jon Jones…
The news comes in the wake of the USADA decision to uphold a 1-year suspension for failed drug test over the summer.
The Big Lead reports:
The good news is that Jones suspension was originally going to be two years. Now it’s retroactive to July and he’ll be eligible to fight again next summer. Considering Jones has fought just three times in the last three-plus years, that’s not even that long of a layoff. Heck, bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz has only fought 3 times since 2011. It’s like Jones is just taking a little break. The fact that the UFC has stripped him of a belt for the second time is merely a footnote since it was a made-up championship belt and he never even really lost the real one.
Then there’s the matter of what caused Jones’ failed drug test, a tainted sexual enhancement pill. It’s amazing how many athletes continue to put things in their body without knowing what they contain, isn’t it?
Over the summer Jon Jones older brother, Indianapolis Colts DE Arthur Jones made a tearful mistake as well.
Arthur Jones has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating its policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Arthur is a defensive lineman for the Indianapolis Colts and the older brother of former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who is himself facing a potential two-year suspension for PED use. These were just the latest two setbacks in what has been an awful last few months for the Jones family.
Tears won’t bring back his achievements. Sorry to here that Jon, maybe next time he will look into what drugs do to the body. He has too much to lose for stupid shhh!! With the new of a tainted sexual enhancement pill causing the problem is absolutely embarrassing.
