    After Jon Jones failed another USADA test around his UFC 214 win over Daniel Cormier in July, speculation was running rampant that the former champion might be suspended for a very long time. But despite indications from his camp and from UFC VP of Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky that his failed drug test indicated “unintentional use”, a resolution to the case still hasn’t been announced more than seven months later.

    There are appears to be some sort of light at the end of the tunnel though, if Jones’ manager Malki Kawa is to be believed. As a guest on The Luke Thomas Show on SiriusXM, Kawa stated that he’s confident things will be brought to a conclusion…

    Wishful thinking, IMO.

    somebody show me how you test for intentional or unintentional use

    I frankly cannot think of a way unless minority report is upon us



    even regardless of that test he is a twice busted user of PEDs, that is a fact

    Let's say it all really was unintentional. How many times can you ingest banned substances unintentionally before it stops being a factor in your sentencing?

    I love percentages.
    According to the last 2 years of Jon Jones fights/life, he has a 200% chance of failing another drug test and a 50% of hitting a women while driving intoxicated.

    No hate, just not a fan of frauds or "narcs" that are total hypocrites

    How about addressing my point.....how do you test for intent?

    If usada really thinks they can determine Intent then it is a total joke anyways.

    This is Likely Malki trying to save Jon and him boatloads of the cash Jon pissed away so far in his young life...purely damage control.

    Uh 205 and HW are my favorite divisions to watch and have been since 1994.

    If a guy is fucking up the flow of a division via in ring cheating and out of the ring disciplinary problems then I am gonna pay attention....IF that fighter pops up on an MMA forum I will comment.

    U just mad every fighter you back lately makes a total clown of himself and of you for making bold claims about them...don't make me bump threads homeboy

    Jon needs to hire Usman to be his manager. Hearing him give a statement at 30% about Jon's 95% chance of fighting would be 100% awesome.

    Too much potential money for him not to.
    Rambo has made solid points.

    Remember when Malki said Yoel took a tainted supplement and we all said it'd never fly?
