    It's so fitting that it says "Jon Jones AGREES to a 15 month suspension" they might as well of let him choose his own punishment

    I want to see him fight. I’m not saying it’s right. I just want to see him fight.

    I forget the particulars. This was his second positive test for performance enhancers, so it should be 2-4 years?

    Christ, this time I am going to have the aneurysm. I love watching Jones fight but this is bullshit for two reasons. First, on its face it's a hilariously short suspension for a two time offender. Second, and what really bugs me, is it's clear favoritism from USADA. Hell, Werdum just got two years for his first failure. Now Jones gets a walk. I think, through whatever mechanism, USADA is not unbiased when it comes to who sells PPVs.

    Maybe they thought this was a "double jeopardy"-type situation where they didn't want to suspend the same guy twice.

    The ufc and Usada clearly worked together for months to try to let him off early so he can fight,

    it’s no coincidence his suspension is up right before a card that was announced months ago with no main event.

    The guy failed 2 tests but was tested once in 2018? and somehow they wait till the last min to announce it while not doing a public hearing.

    That's what their banking on $$$,

    they had it all lined up nicely.

    Going to hurt them in the long run tho,

    can't be winning too many fans over with this shit.
