I'll be real honest. Either this is a set up or Jones' camp hates him. He tested clean all of his camp. This is from the test in between weigh ins, and the fight. It makes no sense to try and juice in that time frame because its not going to have any kind of edge. That being said, with his bone head past, I could see him doing it. Still my favorite fighter.

I disagree.  He's been given numerous chances.  The UFC probably could have turned their backs on him ages ago but they know he's a cash cow.  WHY oh WHY would they set up their cash cow to fail when they stand to lose millions?   Did someone else set him up?  Perhaps---but that's in his camp.  You gotta know what surrounds you.

Yeah I wouldn't think the UFC would do that if anything they would try to hide it.  But it just doesn't make any sense.

Sounds sketchy, but I think this is the MOAB that ends his career. Too bad. Wanted to see him square (octagon?) off against Miocic.

The only thing that doesn't make sense is any explanation of how or why this would be a set up. The simplest answer is usually the best one, and here the simplest answer is that the known, repeat cheater, cheated again.

Feel terrible for Daniel Cormier. Arguably the second best of all time, only lost to a guy whose been popped over and over again for illegal substances.

I don't doubt that someone dimed him out. But usually a guy like this can spot vermin from the next zip code.

I'm not sure if polygraphs actually 'prove' innocence more than they indicate its probability when in combination with other observed organic factors. Cops have told me those things aren't reliable for what they do. And some guys are ice cold and their hearts and pulses don't race when questioned.

Always think of the line from Manhunter, when Will Graham is asked about interrogating Hannibal Lecter:

"We tried sodium amatol on him three years ago to find where he buried a Princeton student; he gave 'em a recipe for potato chip dip."

The longer he stays gone, for whatever reason, the more irrelevant he will become. More interested to see this Miocic-Ngannou scrap this weekend than anything about Bones Jones.
