Six Reasons Jon Jones Should Be Banned For Life


5. Testing Positive For Cocaine Metabolites

While some athletes have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs (which Jones obviously did twice as well), a positive test for cocaine is another beast entirely.

The hard-partying Jones ran into trouble after UFC 182, the event where he first fought and beat Daniel Cormier.

Jones has since made light of the issue, as he never got in trouble because it technically wasn’t banned ‘in-competition;’ however, the damage that was done to his reputation was immeasurable.

It showed that he could not be trusted to pass a drug test when he knows it’s a part of the job, a brand of arrogance that cost him fans and fights.

When your champion and biggest star can’t pass a drug test, and especially for a party drug like cocaine that is out of your system extremely quickly, it simply doesn’t bode well for his future as a professional fighter.

    How about the fact he was never supposed to be tested for cocaine in the first place and that USADA themselves found that he wasn’t guilty of cheating for his first PED test.

      they never found that he wasn’t guilty of cheating. they just couldn’t prove he did.
      his testosterone levels in the first fight were very low for a guy his age. it was consistent with someone who was coming off a cycle. mix that with the fact that at UFC 200 he actually failed for estrogen blockers, which is used to mask the negative effects of a steroid cycle, along with the fact that he got busted with the actual steroid after ufc 214. all the evidence points to him being a career long cheater

      If they didn’t find him guilty they wouldn’t have suspended him. Yes they found out that it was a tainted supplement but because of how negligent he was they suspended him. Also part of being a fighter is submitting random drug tests, so they weren’t looking for cocaine necessarily but found it in that drug test.
