Six Reasons Jon Jones Should Be Banned For Life


4. Failed PED Test # 1

Heading into his awaited UFC 200 rematch with Cormier, some thought that Jones, the greatest athlete to ever grace the sport, was using performance-enhancing drugs. He posted several photos of himself looking extremely jacked and dead-lifting upwards of 600 pounds, both huge red flags in the UFC’s new and much more stringent USADA era.

But it seemed that with his natural-born gifts, he never needed to use PEDs to enhance his performance in the octagon, which still left fans scratching their heads upon his first failed PED test only three days ahead of UFC 200 in July 2016.

That marked the second time Jones had failed a drug test, but unfortunately not the last.

This pattern has become a recurring theme in Jones’ career, and since he never appears to learn his lesson, a lifetime ban may be the only solution in having a clean and reliable light heavyweight champion.

    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.
