Mighty Mouse: No Bad Blood Involved With UFC / ONE Trade

After several days of rumors and Twitter hype, it’s official: former flyweight champ and GOAT contender Demetrious Johnson is leaving the UFC for ONE Championships. In exchange, ONE has released their former welterweight champ Ben Askren so he can pursue a contract with the UFC.

Dubbed by many as the first major MMA ‘trade’, the move has fans buzzing, and why not? Both Johnson and Askren were criminally underappreciated by their former organizations, and a switch could bring new life to their careers. Askren has already started Twitter feuds with half the UFC roster, and now “Mighty Mouse” is explaining the decision to leave the UFC on a ONE Championship media call.

We’ll add audio of the call as soon as it’s available. For now, here’s a breakdown of key points thanks to Damon Martin, MMA Fighting, and others.

What do you think, Maniacs? Excited for this next chapter in the career of Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson?

Report: Jon Jones passed UFC 214 blood test on fight night

Maybe it’s time to put away those pitchforks and torches.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones failed his UFC 214 pre-fight drug test on July 28, which returned positive for Turinabol in his scheduled urine screening.

Then “Bones” came back negative in his fight night blood test roughly 24 hours later.

In addition, the embattled pound-for-pound great passed seven unannounced drug tests before flunking the one he was actually aware of, then somehow passed another one the following night.

That doesn’t sit well with manager Malki Kawa.

“I’m encouraging everyone to go out there and take a look at the tests he passed and the test he failed,” Kawa told MMA Fighting. “It’s a three-week window the month of the fight. Jon has passed seven unannounced tests, and the one he’s going to fail is the one that’s announced? It’s weird to me, there’s a lot of things here that don’t add up, and to the UFC, it doesn’t add up.”

Expensive stack?

Jones was able to defeat rival Daniel Cormier by way of third-round knockout (video), but unfortunately, that win was overshadowed by his issues with United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which is currently testing his B-sample.

Stay tuned.
