Jones was at one time considered the best and unbeatable fighter in the world. He fights at light heavy weight 205lbs, but he can fight at heavy weight if he wanted.
Then he took his legacy and flushed it down the toilet. He was caught doping. I don't think it was steroids. But doping is worse. In the 4th and 5th rounds you need every bit of energy you can get. There were a few fights where Jones had to dig deep and it was close in the final rounds.
Now we will never know if it was the doping that helped him, or if it was a one time deal due to his last performance being so uneventful. He knew he would be tested. Why he would do it I have no idea. If you go on mmajunkie.com or ufc.com you will see him. Bloody elbow is another site you can get great news.
The punishment is a two years suspension, no pay and sponsors are gone. This guy could have made more money then god and he through it away. Where was his advisers or friends through all this? Not to mention all the stuff he did wrong before he did this. Enriching your blood with Oxygen is far worse then doing steroids in the fight game.
John Bones Jones is his name. He was the champ.
Hope this helps.
