Jon Jones Post-Fight Drug Tests Come Back Clean, Which Means Nothing

In case you missed it, the UFC administered Jon Jones their own little drug test before UFC 232, and because homeboy still had some steroids floating around inside him, they moved the event from Nevada to California. Because, you know, some athletic commissions are more cool with steroids than others.

Jones went on to defeat Alexander Gustafsson in a rematch, win back the belt, blah, blah, blah.

Well, the results from the UFC 232 drug tests are back, and according to the California State Athletic Commission and USADA, there is no evidence of any banned substances.

This means nothing. The fact is, the drug test the UFC made Jones take before UFC 232 was at least conclusive enough to warrant moving an ENTIRE event to another state.

Now, let’s see Jones pass a drug test in Nevada. Then we’ll talk.

Lesnar Has Yet To Pay $250,000 Fine For Failed Drug Test

Before WWE superstar Brock Lesnar even thinks about stepping foot back inside of the Octagon he’ll need to pay that pesky $ 250,000 fine he was dished out after failing drug tests for UFC 200 back in 2016.

Lesnar was also suspended for one year by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), but that obviously won’t affect his return to the cage considering Lesnar’s UFC 200 clash with Mark Hunt happened over two years ago.

According to a recent report by MMA Weekly, Lesnar has yet to open his wallet and hand over the $ 250,000 to NSAC. That means that Lesnar remains indefinitely suspended.

“(Lesnar) is still suspended based on his fine,” NSAC executive director Bob Bennett told MMA Weekly back in July. “He is required to pay the fine or set up a payment plan with the Attorney General’s Office (to get cleared from the suspension).”

Seems like Lesnar needed all of the $ 2.5 million he earned for UFC 200.

While Lesnar has already been linked to a return title fight against current UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, nothing can be finalized until “Beast Incarnate” settles the score with the Nevada Commission. Until that happens, any proposed superfight or rumored comeback will be put on the back burner.

Of course, if it really came down to it, I’m sure UFC would pick up the bill should Lesnar decline to pay.

Man With Epic Drug Problem Wishes Everyone a Merry Christmas

In case you missed it, Jon Jones has a drug problem. An epic one. I mean, who else gets an entire UFC moved to another state a week before just so the UFC can find a commission that will license him?

Of course, the official party line is Jones did nothing wrong here. That the test the UFC (note: the UFC, not USADA or any commission) gave him prior to UFC 232 wasn’t any kind of official drug test, and anyway, the positive result is likely a trace left over from the last time Jones supposedly didn’t do any drugs.

As per the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

UFC president Dana White insists the latest controversy surrounding Jon Jones isn’t another stain on the legacy of one of the most successful yet polarizing fighters in the organization’s history.

“Nothing was done wrong here,” White told the Review-Journal in a Monday phone call. “Jon Jones didn’t do anything wrong. We have the science to prove it.”

Okay, sure, maybe it is a leftover trace amount from the last time Jones did drugs. But… he denied doing it then, and avoided a lengthier suspension by ratting people out. And the UFC (wisely) had the foresight to administer their own drug test prior to UFC 232 because they knew that the likelihood of Jones blowing it was high.

But let’s say that the UFC and USADA’s argument is true, that Jones actually didn’t do any fresh drugs. That’s a huge shift in stance. Because they previously acted like it wasn’t possible to have trace amounts of steroids in your system from long-ago use. Cue Frank Mir!

You ever get the sense that, because the UFC needs to make some revenue projections, they treat their pay-per-view draws a little differently?

Anyway, a lot of fans are getting screwed because of the sudden shift from Las Vegas to Los Angeles for a UFC 232 venue. Imagine buying tickets to the event, plane tickets to and from wherever, paying for a hotel and all that jazz, and then learning less than a week before the UFC 232 that your plans are suddenly screwed?

Imagine being any of the other fighters on the card, who must now pay California taxes on the money they’ll make, and who must now tell their friends and family that was supposed to come see them fight that Jones couldn’t fight in Vegas, so it’s California or bust.

So yeah, here’s Jones wishing everyone a merry Christmas.
