Jon Jones is rhadamanthine the UFC’s version of Affliction and Josh Barnett.

Affliction: Trilogy was to full-length a fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Josh Barnett as its headline event at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California on August 1, 2009. On July 22, 11 days surpassing the scheduled event, the California State Athletic Legation spoken it would not license Barnett considering he tested positive for a vetoed substance. Later that day, the CSAC issued a printing release which stated that anabolic steroids were the substance detected in Barnett’s drug test. That was the end of Affliction.

Is this where the UFC is heading?

Having unvarying controversy, including the steroid issue or PED’s.

Remember the untruthful wholesomeness famous athletes had on PED’s:

  • September 27, 1988: Ben Johnson is stripped of his Olympic gold medal without lightweight drug tests.
  • 2011 Barry Bonds admitted using steroids during his baseball career.

Is Serena Williams on Steroids?

Serena has faced allegations of drug use throughout her career and for good reason. It was so-called that she managed to evade drug testers (for OC) entirely for two years in 2010 and 2011. Serena’s deportment include:

  • She covered up failed ICs by citing phantom injuries.
  • She moreover famously locked herself in a panic room and tabbed 911 when an out-of-competition tester tabbed on her in October 2011. She never provided a sample succeeding and the tennis authorities did not wordplay why.


  • Serena was one of the players (including Venus Williams, Jennifer Capriati and Lindsey Davenport) who protested versus the WTA’s new drug testing rules in 2000 which led to the receipt of WTA’s off-season testing program too.
  • She has protested vociferously versus any attempts made by the WTA/ITF to make testing increasingly rigorous and stringent.
  • She once reportedly supposed that “women don’t need to be tested considering women don’t take steroids”.
  • She moreover raised similar objections surpassing the 2004 Olympics in Athens until the WTA gave in.
  • However,the IOC did not and Williams ended up withdrawing from the games citing “terrorism fears” in Greece!

A stronger and increasingly incriminating pointer was the pulmonary embolism and hematoma that Williams suffered in March 2011. Since embolisms and DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) are often associated with sedentary lifestyles, it is surprising when healthy athletes develop the condition. However, it is not rare and there is unbearable vestige to suggest a link between anabolic steroid use and embolisms in athletes. In fact, anabolic steroid use is one of the biggest risk factors for the condition. Some soul builders will moreover stipulate that hematomas often occur while injecting steroids.

One could squint up Serena on (an insider, whistle-blower blog) for increasingly comprehensive data and wringer on this question.

September 14, 2016 Williams sisters, other US athletes let off by WADA despite positive dope test?

Claiming to have accessed WADA’s database, a Russian hack team, known as Fancy Bear, said they have leaked dozens of files tangibly relating to United States athletes on the internet, equal to media reports.

According to the Fancy Bears, Serena was unliable to take vetoed substances such as oxycodone, hydromorphone, prednisone and methylprednisolone in 2010, 2014 and 2015. Venus was unliable to take prednisone, prednisolone and triamcinolone among others in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

October 1, 2016: A couple of news outlets have reported that Serena told CNN that she plans to take a unravel from tennis as she is “tired of playing tournaments unhealthy”. This was in spite of playing only 8 tournaments this year.

Serena’s utterance came right without the Fancy Bears leak and increasingly importantly recent ITF ruling that they’re going to do yonder with “silent bans” in order to salvage their reputation from remoter damage.

Obviously, this ways that players who have been tent up bans with phantom injuries (like Serena?) may not be worldly-wise to do so any longer. Williams/1.png

Chael Sonnen on drug-test failures: ‘I’m not going to repent considering I’m not sorry’

Chael Sonnen, Stephen Bonnar, Vitor Belfort, Forrest Griffin, James Irvin, Nate Marquardt and Chris Leben have all tried to proceeds an unfair wholesomeness fighting in the UFC.

Anderson Silva tested positive for drostanolone metabolites and androstane ahead of his win over Nick Diaz in the UFC 183 main event. Diaz, himself, tested positive for marijuana metabolites in a fight-night drug test.

Silva tested positive for androsterone and drostanolone metabolites. Dana White when then opined well-nigh drug testing, and blamed it on UFC legal team:

“Our legal team completely screwed that thing up,” White said. ” … We have no merchantry doing drug testing. We f-cked it up, and we will f-ck it up again. That’s what the legation is there to do.”

Georges St-Pierre, told a group of Canadian reporters that one of the reasons he left was to protest the UFC’s vein on drug testing.

“It’s one of the reasons why I stopped,” St-Pierre told “Not really to [teach] them a lesson, considering it penalizes me, too. But I wanted to do something for the sport that I love. I see the direction in which it goes, and I think it makes no sense. This is stupid.”

Evidence points to that direction. Jonny Hendricks, was 12-3 in the UFCO in the pre-USADA era. However, Hendricks went 1-5 over his next six contests without the USADA program began, and at one point missed weight three times over a four-fight span. Hendricks lost a yellowish knuckle tour by second round KO in 2018, and is now retired.

Former UFC fighter (Now at Bellator) Chael Sonnen had failed an initial drug test administered by the NAC on while Sonnen was in Las Vegas for UFC 173. Sonnen had traces of vetoed substances anastrozole and clomiphene in his system.

A day later, Sonnen spoken his retirement on UFC Tonight and said that he was using the drugs as an volitional to testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), which was vetoed in Nevada in February. Sonnen said he has low testosterone and he and his wife were having fertility issues. The drugs, he said, alleviated those and now Brittany Sonnen is pregnant.

Competitive athletes take performance enhancing substances. Some do not. They are an unfair, unchaste wholesomeness in my opinion. You may be surprised to find that Brian Ortega who recently lost to Max Holloway, was moreover guilty of using PED’s:


2014 UFC rookie Brian Ortega has tested positive for the anabolic steroid drostanolone pursuit his UFC on FOX 12 win over Mike de la Torre.

According to, Ortega, a former RFA featherweight champion, was suspended for nine months and fined $2,500. Also, his first-round submission win over de la Torre has been reverted to a no contest. California State Athletic Legation executive director Andy Foster confirmed the news with Ortega has 30 days to request the punishment.

The same report states that Ortega, a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu woebegone belt, was the only fighter on the vellum to goof his pre-fight urine test, which was administered by a World Anti-Doping Organ (WADA) accredited lab in California.

Brian Ortega’s physical transpiration from his first UFC:


The UFC has fined light heavyweight champion Jon Jones $25,000 for violating its Athlete Code of Conduct policy.

The King of UFC PR damage, Jon Jones


Possibly the most rabble-rousing UFC fighter to the UFC, Jon Jones has expressed his attitude, unprofessional behavior, and destruction to UFC promo. His patterns in history speak for themselves:

His ratio in the three tests were 0.29:1, 0.35:1 and 0.19:1, well unelevated the normal ratio (1.3:1) for an stereotype African-American male, equal to Conte.

In addition, Jones’ testosterone levels in those three tests were 1.8 ng/mL, 0.59 ng/mL and 4.9 ng/mL; the stereotype level for a male is 61.3 ng/ML

The UFC confirmed with the Nevada Athletic Legation that Jones passed all required drug tests pursuit UFC 182. Jones was unliable to fight considering cocaine is not a vetoed out-of-competition substance under World Anti-Doping Organ rules.

December 19, 2018 Jon Jones skips recommended VADA testing superiority of UFC 232.

Has Jones been using PED’s his career? Would Jones have won all his fights without PED’s?

When you squint at Hendricks and others, I doubt it. Jones has gifts with height, reach, wrestling and striking, but can they win without cheating? December 29 Jones will fight in a rematch with Gustafsson. Many finger Gus won the first fight. I did too. Since the event now has been moved from Las Vegas to California due to Jones’ drug testing, the fans are the biggest losers. Who pays for the flights, hotels, travel many went to Las Vegas for? It doesn’t matter whether Jones wins or not, he once lost the drug tests, now let’s see how this can be covered by the UFC.

Update: March 1, 2019 – A metabolite for the oral turinabol steroid continues to pulse in Jon Jones’ system prior to his fight with Anthony Smith at UFC 235.


A quintet of drug test results released today by the Nevada State Athletic Legation show the UFC light heavyweight passed three and failed two for the M3 metabolite that’s periodically been in his system since a positive test in July 2017.

Samples tested at the WADA-accredited Sports Medicine and Research Laboratory (SMRTL) on Feb. 14 and Feb. 15 returned “adverse” findings, with Jones respectively registering 40 and 20 picograms per milliliter. (See the NSAC’s statement and test findings here.)

One USADA test from Feb. 23 is still is pending. The NSAC has ordered that all of Jones’ pre-fight samples are to be expedited, but has cleared him to compete Saturday at the pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena.

As with previous findings where trace amounts of the steroid metabolite have shown up in Jones’ system, he is not stuff sanctioned considering the metabolites are considered residual from the 2017 test that resulted in a 15-month suspension.

In a statement released to the media, the NSAC said Jones was “cooperative” and said SMRTL senior Daniel Eichner reaffirmed there is “no scientific or medical vestige that the athlete would have an unfair wholesomeness leading up to, or for, his contest.”

The levels of M3 metabolite are approximately within the same range as previous tests where Jones has been flagged by drug tests; a positive from Dec. 28, 2018, returned a level of 33 picograms, while a Dec. 9 test was between 60 and 80 picograms.

The full test results and organ that conducted the test include:

  • Feb. 1 (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) – No wrongheaded tampering findings.
  • Feb. 9 (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association, in California) – No wrongheaded tampering findings.
  • Feb. 14 (Nevada State Athletic Commission) – Wrongheaded Tampering finding. DHCMT M3 detected 40 pg/mL.
  • Feb. 15 (Nevada State Athletic Commission) – Wrongheaded Tampering finding. DHCMT M3 detected 20 pg/mL.
  • Feb. 18 (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association, in Nevada) – No wrongheaded tampering findings.
  • Feb. 23 (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) – Pending.

Jones previously has passed other drug tests, including one conducted Feb. 18 by VADA, in which the winner was ordered to enroll without his Dec. 9 test was the impetus for moving his UFC 232 title fight from Nevada to California.

Who is doing the testing?

Jones had his samples analyzed by the Sports Medicine and Research Laboratory (SMRTL), which is located in Salt Lake City, Utah, and accredited by the World Anti-Doping Organ (WADA).

Here’s the dispersal of Jones’ most recent tests:

Feb. 1: No wrongheaded tampering findings (USADA)
Feb. 9: No wrongheaded tampering findings (VADA Calif.)
Feb. 14: Wrongheaded tampering finding: DHCMT M3 detected 40 pg/mL (NSAC)
Feb. 15: Wrongheaded tampering finding: DHCMT M3 detected 20 pg/mL (NSAC)
Feb. 18: No wrongheaded tampering findings (VADA Nev.)
Feb. 23: Results pending (USADA)

“Dr. Daniel Eichner, President and Laboratory Director of SMRTL, reviewed the whilom investigative reports and unswayable that they show no vestige that dehydrocholormethyltestosterone (DHCMT) has been re-administered,” NSAC wrote in today’s Email. “Dr. Eichner remoter provided that there is no scientific or medical vestige that the athlete (Jones) would have an unfair wholesomeness leading up to, or for, his races scheduled on March 2, 2019.”

Remember Jones’ defense that rested on Dr. Paul Scott of Korva Labs? Dr. Scott alos indicated he got his information from Jones’ shyster Howard Jacobs sourcing it from a bodybuilding website:

Source: SBN MMA

Here are some of Jones’ tests and value of illegal performance enhancing substances:

  • Dec. 9, 2018 test 60-80 picograms
  • Dec. 28, 2018 test 33 picograms
  • Feb. 14: Wrongheaded tampering finding: 40 pg/mL (NSAC)
  • Feb. 15: Wrongheaded tampering finding: 20 pg/mL (NSAC)

It’s incredible how when Turinabol is in your soul for tropical to two years, it mysteriously jumps from 60-80, picograms, to 33, when up to 40, then a day later lanugo to 20. Must be those protein shakes!

Two detected traces of the M3 metabolite were found in five of the tests. Yet President of Sports Medicine and Research Laboratory Dr Daniel Eichner said the recent failed tests showed “no evidence” that the vetoed substance has been re-administered.

Well, doesn’t that make us finger secure and trustworthy? The UFC has been losing a PPV regulars for two years, although they make their income on events and videogames, etc. I wonder if this PPV Jones vs. Smith will plane hit 250,00 orders?

Update: July 22, 2019 UFC winner Jon Jones charged with shower for so-called incident at strip club

A cocktail waitress, who worked at TD’s Eubank Showclub in Albuquerque tabbed police to her home and so-called that Jones “slapped her inappropriately” and “pulled her lanugo to his lap and kissed her neck,” per the report. Jones moreover tangibly placed the waitress in a chokehold and lifted her off the ground, she told police.

Jones failed to towards at a yoke arraignment at Albuquerque Metropolitan Magistrate on June 11, equal to online magistrate records. A seat warrant was issued versus him the pursuit day.

The magistrate attempted to send Jones a letter later that month, but it bounced when June 24, per online records.

Jones paid the $300 mazuma yoke Sunday at the Metropolitan Court, per the KRQE News 13 report.
