Former UFC light heavyweight champion, UFC Hall of Fame member and mixed martial arts icon Chuck Liddell weighed in on Jon Jones testing positive to cocaine metabolites and leaving rehab after one day.

“He’ll be fine. He’s going to be fine,” the 45-year-old former titleholder told about the current champion. “He made a mistake. Give the guy a break.”

Jones failed an out out competition drug test administered in December just a month ahead of his eighth consecutive title defense against Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 on Jan. 6 in Las Vegas. The 27-year-old entered a rehabilitation center immediately following the news that he had tested positive. He checked out the following day.

    My friend who was a HUGE Chuck Liddell fan back in the day was hating on jbj…. until I had to remind of how much blow Chuck did back in the day.

      Chuck Liddell is not somebody I’d be holding up as an example of physical or intellectual being of using blow and coming out unscathed from it. I’m sure that and being knocked out numerous times accounts for this.
      I’m almost dreading to see what he is like in ten years.

    Looks like Chuck has been eating well, again.

    Of course he’ll be fine, as long as he continues to win fights and make money for others. Give him a break? It seems to me everyone has done just that. Dana, the UFC, Reebok, the NSAC, etc. Anyone in a position to punish him has given him a huge break. Just like they did when he lied to the NSAC, threw a punch at a presser, crashed his Bentley whilst driving drunk. The breaks never end for Jones.

    The problem I have is with the fact that those breaks don’t seem to apply to anyone else.

    Lol that dude is geeking out so hard it ain’t funny. He’s gulping like a fiash, must have gotten a big chunk down the back of his throat when he tried to clear his nose. Got the quiver, lol.
