There has been a mixed reaction to former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones having the penalty for his second UFC Anti-Doping Policy infraction reduced from a potential four-year career killer down to a much more manageable 15-month suspension that ends in October.
There was no waffling in the response from UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov as he spoke to TMZ Sports ahead of Thursday’s UFC 229 press conference with Conor McGregor in New York.
“I think it’s very bad. They have to give him, like, a little bit more,” Nurmagomedov said of Jones’ suspension before adding, “But now I understand that USADA is number one bulls–t.”
