Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier Are At It Again, And Cormier Is Winning

Former champ and part-time snitch Jon Jones has a little bit of history with Daniel Cormier.

Twice Jones has beaten the current light-heavyweight and heavyweight champ. And yet both those times, Jones ended up losing his belt because he can’t keep away from illicit substances.

Now Jones is back from his last drug suspension, and he’s working the social media angles to get under Cormier’s skin. It just might be working, but Jones is getting slapped around a little hard…

Here’s some of the back and forth:

First, Jones fired off some Hater-ade.

@dc_mma You mad, Bro? USADA keeps calling but you’re not going to pick up the phone because the second you hear them say I’m innocent is the instant the illusion you’ve created shatters. Then it’s all real AGAIN and that’s not a step you’re willing to take. Instead you wrap yourself in your fake belt and keep telling yourself the shin that slammed into your face and the performance that buried you once again was enhanced. The fact you can’t beat me kills you and it stops you from picking up that phone. If you answer it then the nightmare becomes reality. Then again, maybe you do pick up, accept the truth that you were defeated by a superior fighter and that gives you peace. Or it goes another way and you get motivated to try a third time and that will save me the hassle of having to dig you up before I bury you. So now that the illusion you’ve built is crumbling and the “violation was not intended nor could it have enhanced the athlete’s performance” you still have to tell yourself something yeah? And while there was “absolutely no intention to use prohibited substances,” it was my intention to kick your ass once again. Mission accomplished. Pick up the phone #letstalkaboutit

Then Cormier responded, and I have to say, he totally eviscerated the dude.

So here we go again Jonny boy. First off, if you did nothing wrong and were “innocent“ then you’d have never been suspended. You’ve had to stand before these people and arbitrators so many times it’s insane. So you slipped again, how many times can one man slip? I’ve been tested 70 times and I haven’t slipped once. How do you explain that? And on top of all the cheating you’ve done around UFC 182, UFC 200 and UFC 214 that’s not even the straw that broke the camel’s back. You are actually a SNITCH! You think you’re the only one that’s been offered this deal? No, you’re just the only scumbag low enough to take it! Which one of your teammates did you tell on to get this joke of a punishment from USADA! I thought there was nothing lower than a cheater but it’s not surprising that you show me a whole new level. You’re a cheater and a SNITCH! Get off my page and go do some coke, or steroids or whatever you losers do in your spare time. #doublechamp

Jones replied, but I don’t know… He’s probably hiding under the cage at Jackson-Winklejohn gym crying right now.

Jon Jones’ Manager Tries to Say He Didn’t Snitch… But He Snitched

Anyone who’s seen that flick “Jerry McGuire” knows that a sports agent’s job is to both show his client the money and help keep the athlete’s image intact. Well, former champ but forever drugged-out mess Jon Jones was recently handed a light punishment by USADA because he availed himself of their “snitching policy”.

And now Jones’ agent, Malki Kawa, has been making the media rounds, pushing the narrative that nope, no way, Jones didn’t snitch.

Except he did.

Here’s what Kawa said to ace journo Luke Thomas:

Malki Kawa told Luke Thomas on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour that Jones did not get a reduced suspension in his anti-doping case because he was informing USADA about performance-enhancing drug use by his teammates.

Jones was suspended 15 months, retroactive to July 2017, in the case due to what USADA described as “substantial assistance” and the belief by arbitrator Richard McLaren that Jones was not knowingly cheating. Jones tested positive for a steroid metabolite in relation to UFC 214 last year and has been adamant that he didn’t intentionally take a prohibited substance.

“It’s not like Jon Jones is sitting around in a room watching guys do steroids and then turning around and saying, ‘Oh, wait a minute, I just got popped, I’m gonna go tell on my poor teammates that I know for a fact are sitting in a room doing it, because I just watched them do it,’” Kawa said. “That’s not what happened. Jon goes to training, he trains and he leaves. There’s no hanging out in a room, there’s not going to a bathroom, there’s no shooting somebody up. He doesn’t do that.”

That’s all well and good… except it’s crap.

Hey, Kawa is just doing his job, so you can’t fault him too much. On the flipside, though… if you or someone you know has done juice with Jones, expect a visit from the authorities soon.

Midnight Mania! Jones’ Manager Claims No Snitching, USADA Responds

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight …

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Jon Jones’ manager, Malki Kawa, attempted to bat cleanup for Jones today on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, after we read Jones’ arbitration agreement and realized he got 30 months off his sentence for “substantial assistance” in giving information about another person, either helping USADA with another drug-busting case or helping pursuit of a criminal investigation. No one in MMA had invoked rule 10.6.1.1 before, the infamous “snitching clause”, and Kawa seemed a little hazy about what it meant. He also insinuated Jones provided assistance to USADA about himself, not a teammate. Transcription via MMAJunkie.com:

“I can just tell you without a shadow of a doubt that Jon did not tell on any teammate,” Kawa, of First Round Management, said on “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.” “Jon did not tell on anyone in MMA. Jon did not do anything that these people are saying he did. So all that, ‘He’s a snitch’ and all that stuff, we can put it to bed. He did not do that. There’s other things that took place in here. There’s other things that Jon did with himself. There’s things that USADA – and the arbitrator and everyone involved – got from Jon about Jon that they had never had before.”

USADA provided a statement that reiterated 10.6.1.1- which explicitly states that substantial assistance is provided about another person, not oneself — “…which results in a criminal or disciplinary body discovering or bringing forward a criminal offense or the breach of professional rules committed by another person.” She also pointed out that Jones would need to continue cooperating with USADA, or the reduction would be rescinded.

In a written statement provided to MMAjunkie in response to Kawa’s interview, USADA spokesperson Danielle Eurich cited rule 10.6.1.1. She also repeated the agreement that Jones’ reduction is contingent on his continued cooperation.

“Importantly, if the athlete or support personnel fails to continue to cooperate and provide credible substantial assistance, USADA will reinstate the original sanction,” Eurich said. “These rules set out in 10.6.1.1 are crystal clear, and if they are not met, an individual would not be considered for a reduction based on substantial assistance.”

She didn’t comment on the nature of Jones’ assistance, as it involves “ongoing matters”.

This made Kawa’s statements on the nature of Jon Jones’ assistance seem less somewhat less credible.

“It’s not like Jon sits in a room somewhere and watches people do steroids, and then he’s like, ‘Hey man, guess what, my teammate over here is doing steroids,’” Kawa said. “Jon goes and trains, gets his stuff, and he goes home. He doesn’t take a shower there. He doesn’t really hang out there. He comes in, does his thing, and he leaves. So he doesn’t sit there and hang out like that, or would know about anyone that does that. He doesn’t do that. So when people say these things, to me, it’s a funny thing.

“I’m assuming if Jon’s name comes up in something, and he was to know something, he would have to be cooperative with them. But I don’t know of a deal where it’s like, ‘Hey, we’re going to continue to’ – I don’t know about that. That’s not how it went down. I don’t want to assume anything or have this turn into a disaster all of a sudden. But, from what I understand, a lot of the stuff they were talking about had to do with him – not other people.”

Jones caught substantial flak from fellow fighters over the news that he had taken advantage of clause 10.6.1.1, though nothing specific has yet become public. Kawa also mentioned that rematches with Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson are the top options in play for ‘Jonny Bones’ return.


Insomnia

Alexander Gustafsson is still angling for a fight with Jon Jones- under just about any circumstances.

Is this the perfect admixture of meme?

Speaking of McGregor, he is getting vague threats from Russia — with love.

ONE Championship is evidently pursuing Eddie Alvarez.

Emil Valhalla Meek living up to what we imagine his Viking ancestors might have looked like.

Eryk Anders may not have won, but he won fans with his gutsy performance against Thiago Santos… and how he has since taken the loss.

Dana White’s response to questions asking him about his truthfulness starts out “You’re a smart man. I’m a promoter. I promote fights. I sell fights for a living, as do other promoters.” It’s interesting seeing how he squared the circle under oath of the questionable truth value of many of his obviously grandiose statements.

Keep your thoughts, prayers and good energy sent the way of Ray Borg and his family.

“No look no touch” is a new one on me. My question is always, how do they get their students to believe they run into force fields?

He threw it all away for a flying double hammerfist. Worth it?

Logan Paul objected to objections about his Octagon fight readiness. And when it comes to C.M. Punk, he unfortunately has a point.
