UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was on hand for a special Reebok launch on Wednesday. In an interview with, he covered numerous topics in the world of Jon Jones, but perhaps the most interesting are his renewed interest in fighting heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and possible legal wrangling over a positive drug test that revealed cocaine in his system.

    I’m no image consultant, but perhaps the most intelligent course of action at this point would be to shut up regarding drugs.

    • Sadstrangelittleman

      Nope you’re no image consultant – just a person with a fully functional brain

  • Steve Wilson

    Begone,Jones. Please.

    • Sadstrangelittleman

      As much as I would love to see that happen, the reality is he will never be gone truly – the UFC has made them their new “champion of champions” and until he loses that title and then has a few more instances like this the UFC will keep him around.

    Jon Jones says he don’t know how the cocane got in his system he thinks he is being framed.

    • TheCerealKiller

      You obviously didn’t watch the interview. He didn’t say that. He said there is some foul play in testing him for recreational drugs and releasing the results.

      • Groinstrike

        Yeah. Is it legal what they did? Probably not. But if someone gets busted for murder by an illegal search and seizure does it mean they didn’t commit the crime? nope. Jon is just upset that it came out he uses drugs when he wants the image of Clark Kent.

        • TheCerealKiller

          The problem is that someone in the NAC made it a point to try and smear Jones with illegally obtained drug results. They knew they couldn’t release the results, but did it anyways to try and damage him financially. If they are going to hold the fighters to the rules, they should be held accountable if they break them as well.

          • Groinstrike

            You cannot know that for certain. You are assuming it was intentional. There may have been a screw up where instead of only looking for PED’s there was a search for any banned substance’s the time of the fight like they normally do. It’s like slander. Unless you can prove that it was intentional then there is no case.

          • TheCerealKiller

            The test was a simple mistake when sent to the lab. Publicly releasing the results was intentional. Blood tests get run all the time by mistake, but the results are thrown out after.

          • earlsimmons

            “Publicly releasing the results was intentional” want to cite some evidence for this or just speaking out of your butt?

          • Sadstrangelittleman

            While I agree there is no “hard evidence” to show this was intentional, there is still a common sense factor when it comes to this stuff. There can really only be so much coincidence before something becomes an obviously intentional act. All that said I would love for someone to come forward and outright say they did this because in my opinion it needed to be done and they should be commended. At the end of the day, Jones will be coached to use this as a cry for sympathy and to take away from the cold hard fact that he used cocaine. It’s the Jones show right now – from testing + for coke, admitting he had a “problem” and going to rehab for 1 night, then saying he didn’t have a problem and just messed up to now saying he was essentially set up. Hell of a PR team he has and what a lucky set of circumstances for him

          • Sadstrangelittleman

            Even if it was “intentional” which I’m not arguing that point, Jones and the UFC (partially) are trying to use this to pull the spotlight from the fact that he was using cocaine, and turn him into a victim. It’s a common argument but if this were say, Nick Diaz (just using him as an example since he is a very public pot user) the UFC would have punished him and probably severely. The fact that they didn’t punish Jones shows they are going to favor one fighter over another which is very shady. They should be thankful they aren’t a publicly traded company because this would be a stock killer. I love the UFC (for the product they put out) but recognize that they aren’t the most honest businessmen all the time. Jones was lucky enough to find himself in this situation during a pivotal time in the companies history (Reebok) and if it had not been for him winning that fight, he very well could have been suspended or released (which he should have been anyway).

    Oh Jon…

  • cheflacsto

    I think this fight will be a great one, but I think Jon will prevail. If he does I do like the idea of him fighting Cain. Cain is a heavyweight that I think Jon actually matches up well against. Size wise Jon won’t be that much smaller, and Cain wins with volume. Bigger heavyweights with a ton of size and power probably beat Jon but I would like to see how that one plays out.
