UFC 235 Results: Jon Jones Beats Anthony Smith, Despite Losing Points for Cheating

Everyone’s favorite drug user and sometime-UFC champ Jon Jones had no problem defending his belt against Anthony Smith in the main event of UFC 235. In fact, Jones only needed to cheat once to do it.

Essentially, Jones outclassed Smith for five rounds of stand-up, striking from every angle and forcing the challenger to defend more often than allowing him to attack. Smith was simply shut down.

But in Round 4, Jones… I don’t know… felt like maybe kneeing Smith in the head when Smith was on all fours…? The thought process escapes me.

Well, whatever the reason, Jones was deducted two points, making that the closet round Smith had. So yeah, there was no mystery who had won when the judges were tallying up the scorecards.

More Shady Drug Test Results From Jon Jones, But This Is the New Normal

Hey, guess who’s had some questionable drug tests results come back prior to his UFC 235 main event fight against Anthony Smith?

If you guessed current light-heavyweight champ and avid party animal Jon Jones… wow. How did you ever guess that?

I think it’s time we accept the fact that Jones is using a very special masking agent for his steroid use. And that masking agent is called USADA. Anyway, here’s MMAFighting:

Two Jones drug-test results from earlier this month came back positive for trace amounts of the metabolite for the prohibited steroid oral Turinabol, sources told MMA Fighting. The atypical findings stemmed from samples collected Feb. 14 and Feb. 15. The tests were administered by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) and analyzed at the WADA-accredited SMRTL lab in Salt Lake City.

This is the same long-term metabolite — 4-chloro-18-nor-17β-hydroxymethyl,17α-methyl-5α-androst-13-en-3α-ol (M3) (or DHMCT) — that experts believe has been in Jones’ system for at least more than a year. Jones will be cleared to fight by the NAC, because experts believe this is the same long-term metabolite found in Jones’ system in relation to UFC 214 in July 2017 and he was already suspended 15 months by USADA, the UFC’s anti-doping partner, for that violation.

Jones, 31, also tested clean with no presence of the M3 metabolite multiple times since he beat Alexander Gustafsson to win back the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 232 on Dec. 29.

The Feb. 14 sample came back with 40 picograms per milliliter of DHCMT and the Feb. 15 sample back with 20 picograms per milliliter. Experts have said the amount of picograms is largely irrelevant. The more significant indicator is that it’s the long-term metabolite and not anything shorter term, experts have said.

Midnight Mania! Jones Unbothered by Positive Drug Test Results

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Jon Jones continues to test positive for Turinabol M3 metabolites, and the powers that be continue to accept this as a result of ‘pulsing’, even though there is very little science behind that confidence. He himself says he’s ‘comfortable in this space’, and said he’s been learning of athletes in baseball and another UFC athlete who are in the same scenario he is in. As baseball has had an infamous steroid problem since as long as I can recall, that doesn’t seem particularly comforting.

I know that I’m almost a leader in this whole development, and I’m comfortable in this space. I just wish, I wish fans would not just look at the headlines, and actually click on the links and learn what was really going on.

While I do share Jon’s desire for fans to actually click on the links and educate themselves- and I’m not quite sure how he could be handling it any differently, frankly- I certainly don’t share his confidence in his own inviolable innocence. He is a leader in this space, though, as no other athletes have been able to get away with multiple positive tests and continue their fight careers almost completely unchecked. He is in a kind of no-man’s land, where we have been told to expect more positive results, so whether or not they occur, Jones is bound to take heat. Nothing he can do or say will clear his name in the eyes of many fans, so in that sense, perhaps he is right to just be comfortable.

Jon Jones faces Anthony Smith at UFC 235 this Saturday on Pay-Per-View, the headliner to a stacked event. Smith, like Jones, has opted to be unbothered by the results, saying he believes Jones is a clean athlete.
