I just can't believe that he'd be stupid enough to take steroids for this fight. No one could possibly be that stupid, right?

He should fight Brock still...fuck it. A year or two from now for like 10 million...then they both pop again...shit man, they could do it in Canada or Russia when Khabib fights again. By then they can make sure to give Bellator another 15 fighters from the top ten.

this may sound like a dumb question but could someone just put steroids in jones food and would that be able to turn up on the test ? or would it have to be injected ?

i dont know why but this just screams sabotage to me, impossible to prove but that's just what it feels like to me.

My memory isn't great on this topic, but I thought he tested positive due to dick pills previously which you typically don't inject. At least I don't. A quick Google search should solve your problems, aussie. Unfortunately, I am simply too busy looking at harambe memes to do it myself.

Perhaps Conor vs Mayweather is the event that begins the slow death of combat sports in the us. Ppv sales haven't been stellar and mma no longer has a superstar

Why is this man allowed to fight. He needs to go. So bad for the sport.

I said years ago this guy was bad for the sport and would never change boy was I right. Get rid of this guy and never let him fight again. Maybe he can work with Rumble selling weed.

I doubt that. I am sure DC still owns the loss. Jones is the better fighter. Athough, there will always be an asterisk because of this. Although, I think DC will take some time, mentally recover and rule the division over the next 4 years; although I do not see him fighting that much longer. He is older and his body could be hitting the wall here soon, once he starts pulling out at the frequency that Cain pulls out of his fights, then I think he retires but until then, this is DC's division.

So sad....Jones had a chance to have it all..now he will have nothing. No telling where he goes from here as he indicated that "he doesn't know who he is without that belt" (paraphrasing). I would love to see nothing more that Jones keep his head down for 4 years and come back with a vengeance and third wind to his career and stay on the straight and narrow for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, I just do not see that happening.

Frank Lester -- who trains with Jon at Jackson Wink in New Mexico -- says, "I was just at dinner sitting next to Jon Jones when he got the phone call about this failed drug test."

"Supposedly the story is between weigh ins and fight night he took an oral steroid. Which makes zero sense since it wouldn't do anything at all for Jon to do so. It takes weeks for steroids to build up in your system to be a performance enhancer. Jon was devastated to say the least."

"This is a setup, straight-up, no athlete would test clean his entire fight camp, and then randomly take some cheap f*cking oral steroid between weigh ins and fight night knowing he would be tested once he got done fighting."

"This is a straight setup. They are trying to ruin this kid's life. It makes no sense and Jon wouldn't do it."

"Let's see what happens with all of this but I truly believe Jon is innocent & I hope that all of you will give him a fair chance before you send hateful judgments his way."

Seems turinabol is taken orally, and can be blend into shakes easily.

You could be right, I think this kind of scenario is the only way DC continues to fight though; otherwise he's #2 for the rest of career and I don't think a guy like him can stomach that.
