    Didn’t see a thread about this... thought it would create a nice discussion. with the California commission stripping his licence and Jones will be facing USADA in the near future.

    What do you think they’ll do with him?
    I’m expecting 2-4 year ban and career over

    Discussion has been ongoing in the 'general mma thread', but probably a good idea to make a thread about Jones.

    Common sense says a 2-4 year ban but wouldn't be surprised if he got something like a year.

    As said precedent would suggest lengthy spell (second indiscretion, no hint of a valid reasonable excuse, horrible defence mounted thus far and a poor attitude about USADA and its procedures) but who can tell. 2 years backdated after Dana sends an envelope USADAs way.

    Can he fight in Bellator even though the Cali commission has taken his license?

    From my understanding I think if he is under contract with ufc he wouldn’t be able to compete in another organisation. I’m not exactly sure how the system works when it comes to athletic organisations and all that but from what I hear they all kinda back each other up so for example if he is banned in California he couldn’t go simply fight in newyork under Belator.

    Yes I think it’s the contract that would stop him moving across. And I have heard he could get as low as a year, that would be a joke but I’m not real fussed about PEDs tbh, just want to see him back.

    Yeh it’s a weird feeling that I think a lot of people share.

    Want him back cause he’s so good but also want to see the book thrown at him for sheer stupidity but also think the fact that most if not all are flaunting these rules anyway but... you get the point.

    Hahahahaha

    Bones - “hey guys here are all the supplements I was using, clean as a whistle”
    USADA - “what about those big bottles with steroids on the label”
    Bones - “oh I totally wasn’t using them”
    USADA - “okay, what about all these needles in this drawer”
    Bones - “they are for an art project I’m doing”
    USADA - “mmhmm, how about these testosterone patches”
    Bones - “for my cats... they need them”
    USADA - “well nothing to see here carry on”

    Dana White - “thanks guys, new cars will be in the driveways when you get home”

    its a bit of a ridiculous ruling considering all the rules that are in place but I sort of feel 18 months for doping is about right in a year-round sport (so close enough).

    Whether truly guilty or not, Jones is a doper/cheater for life.

    I'm glad we get to watch him fight again.

    I wonder who he fights... assuming it will be for a title.

    Considering his past history, he's basically got nothing. Week by USADA, but as alluded to by phantom13 who I reckon is on the money, reckon there's been some shonky deals to reduce it to 18 months. His talent and ability to draw money is the only reason he hasn't been torched into existence. Penny hasn't dropped for him and never will.

    Well can only be one person in that case ;)

    What's bigger though DC vs Jones or Brock?

    At this point why not have them weigh in at LHW on the Friday Morning, then have them weigh in at HW after theyve jumped off the scales and had a drink and a protein bar, then jump back on for heavyweight, then have one 5 rounder for both titles, the whole shooting match.

    Cant see any reason they couldnt do it, not like the follow any actual rules at this point, id pay to watch.

    Jones was tested by usada 8 times around ufc 214 and the only test he failed was the one that all fighters know is coming - the in competition test (somewhere in the 24 hours before the fight).

    It's just a fact.
    What do I make of it..not sure. But he was clean for 7 random tests, and then fails the one test which he knows is going to happen.
    I'm not going to guess what went down, but I can see how those facts help his case.
