Suspended Jon Jones cleared to fight in October by corrupt USADA
what a total joke. second steroid suspension and he gets 15 months. USADA is so corrupt it's not even funny.

---



The United States Anti-Doping Agency announced Wednesday it has suspended Jones for 15 months, for testing positive for metabolites of an anabolic steroid on July 28, 2017. The suspension is retroactive to the date of the test, meaning Jones has already served nearly 14 months.

Jones, who is from Rochester, New York, had faced a maximum ban of four years. He also faced potential sanctions from the California State Athletic Commission because the failed test took place in Anaheim, California, but CSAC executive director Andy Foster told ESPN the commission finds a 15-month suspension "agreeable."
"The arbitrator found that Jones never intentionally or knowingly took steroids and the result of the positive test was the result of a contaminated substance," White said. "The science completely supports that finding. The science doesn't lie, so I look forward to getting him back early next year."

An independent arbitrator settled on the 15-month suspension length following a closed hearing last weekend. Jones, 31, has maintained he did not take any performance-enhancing drug around the time of the test, but he did admit to the use of illicit drugs, including cocaine, "prior to and for a period of time after" July 28, 2017.

Too much money involved. A Jon Jones main event is a deal worth $3M-$10M.

How can corruption ever be avoided?

it's not just the money.. it's just blatant in your face "whacha gonna do about" corruption

if everything was about money, they'd give alex jones his own TV show.

they'd promote mel gibson's passion the christ.. 25 million budget 700 million return!

Wanderlei got a 4 year suspension for refusing to test. Jones fails his second PED test in 2 years, gets a year and 3 months suspension.

The UFC needs a strong PPV for NYE with Jones headlining . Very transparent. Someone was def paid.

Pride (and pro wrestling, funnily enough) had it right. Fighting is not a sport, first and foremost. It is entertainment.

Look at Minowa. Sure, he came onto the scene as a novelty, but he gained everyone's respect, and 35-25 at the end of Pride. He fought Crocop and Wanderlei and Rampage and Bob Sapp!

So there is a place for 'freak show' fights, just like there is a place for championship fights, tournaments, guys making their debuts/early in their careers, mixed weight class fights.

But UFC just cares about negotiating position, so if you lose 3 in a row or 3 of 4 they want to either give you a huge pay cut, or cut you altogether. Regardless of who those 3 fights were again (could have been the champ, twice, and the no. 1 contender) or how the fights went down (hugely entertaining, ending in a close decision loss). UFC views a loss as a loss, i.e. the end of the world.

Yep. he used to rat out the pot heads in school. Was a high school snitch. I'm glad he's back though; hope he whups DC a third straight time.

Not that I'll be watching it or anything...
