Jones hasn’t fought since UFC 214 last July and is still awaiting his suspension from USADA but as investigations continue, some think Jones may not be gone for as long as assumed when the news first broke. Jones’ manager, Malki Kawa spoke to Luke Thomas today and got an update on the situation:

 

“By the end of this month I think we get some clarity on the issues. We have a hearing with the California State Athletic Commission and we’re hoping to get the investigation with USADA wrapped up by then, as well. Hopefully it all works out that way. I got to assume that by the end of March, for a fact, we will get this resolved and get an idea of what it’s looking like. I’d like to say about a 95-percent chance (he fights in 2018).

 

If USADA is a respectable organization, which I think that they are, and they take all the information they compiled, all the interviews that they’ve done and all the things they’ve seen, they know for a fact that Jon Jones was not cheating and he was not intentionally taking any kind of substance. I think they know that and everybody can come to that conclusion based on the circumstances of his situation. That’s the most I am going to say at this point because it is obviously on-going.”

 

The original guesstimate for what could be possible for Jones’ suspension was somewhere around four years.

 

Will that be what it actually ends up as?


"All will be well."

Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, are given a chance to climb...they refuse, they cling to the realm or gods or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

unless they make it retroactive to the date of the failed test which they like to do, then he'll be good to fight by the end of July

Nope, this time it was cocaine laced with creatine which was laced with steroids. 

 

The lengths they will go to let a fighter off the hook when PPV sales are in the gutter.

The forum just can't handle level-headed fact-based analysis using the queen's English.  I should have just said that Vanatta double-diggled that foglet Ferguson in blueberry flavoured buttermilk and I'm sure Banham would have agreed.

How funny.

 

Based on the article I posted on my thread ... yeah I believe he is gonna fight in 2018.

 

Not surprised. Jones is STILL a drawer (and UFC will make a decent PR to explain he is innocent trust me) and the New FC will do whatever it takes to bring him back.

I hope he does fight, and soon. The UFC needs him to bring back casuals like me. Ratings are tanking. I barely even make the effort to watch illegally uploaded fights on YouTube the following morning anymore.

ONLY because of legal loopholes that get criminals off when they are guilty and NOT because he deserves to fight ever again.

I mean even the dumbest people around the sport easily saw the fast size/strength improvements,TOO fast so he wasn't fooling anyone.

 

Personally when i saw Jones first few fights i was a fan,but over time i have become anything but a fan,i rather see him banned forever.

Considering Jon Jones is the greatest fighter to ever compete in MMA he should have never been suspended, he even passed a lie detector test.

I think they should just drop USADA and start to use lie detector test day before the fight.
