Welcome to Midnight Mania!
This is not the first time UFC President Dana White has been compelled to offer his take on a Jon Jones scandal. He’s both defended and berated Jones in excess of the years, but the most recent incident would seem to have him far more befuddled than everything else.
To recap, after a long time of rumors and speculation, Jones last but not least admitted that he hid under an Octagon to stay clear of a Nevada Condition Athletic Commission (NSAC) drug exam. He also discussed absent the offense, blaming a modern blunt for his impromptu match of conceal-and-search for.
When requested about a potential statute of constraints about Jones avoidance of the drug check, White broke down the condition, “They never exam for cannabis. If what he was fearful about was marijuana, they do not test for cannabis in the pre-testing. If it was inside of the struggle window, he would have been in this article and gotten tested anyway.
“I don’t know nearly anything about that. But, except if you’re in competition, they are not testing for marijuana in any case.”
So, if not cannabis, what was Jones fearful about?
In advance of reducing appropriate to the worst-circumstance situation, there is some record below. White is accurate that NSAC (and USADA) are not intended to exam for avenue medicine out of levels of competition. However, NSAC did crack their have process by testing an out-of-opposition sample from Jones for cocaine! After he unsuccessful, the details was produced community!
Jones certainly has explanations to be wary.
No matter, the entire problem is a weird a person, and it has to be questioned: why would “Bones” acknowledge it in the first location?
There’s no way tomorrow’s most important party isn’t (at a minimum amount) enjoyment. Get hoopla!
