And here I thought steroids and weed were our biggest concerns when it came to MMA fighters (for the most part, anyway).
I really don’t know much about the circumstances, but I would be interested to hear Jones’ side of the story, and at what point he may the conscious decision to use cocaine. Basically, I want an explanation as to what the hell he was thinking. He has made a statement that he apologizes to everyone- friends, family, fiancée and their children, and has agreed to go to a drug treatment facility, but I’m still a little shocked by this news.
Check out the article on ESPN and let me know what you think. Otherwise, have a great day everyone! And don’t do drugs. Please.
Anyone else watch UFC 182 on Saturday night. The main fight on the card was Jon “Bones” Jones and Daniel Cormier. Cormier lost by judge’s decision, but that wasn’t the most memorable part of the night. Unfortunately, the most memorable part of the match up didn’t even take place inside of the ring: rather all the smack talking that happened beforehand, and this classy move pulled by Jones after the match:
While I understand that neither side is without fault, and I don’t expect much in terms of courtesy from UFC fighters (not to mention in the realm of obscene gestures, this is actually pretty mild), I do feel this is a bit much. Dislike someone all you want, but at least give them some respect, if nothing else for the fact that they are willing to get into the ring with you to duke it out for a couple of rounds.
What did you all think, if you happened to watch the fight? Totally justified, or uncalled for?
Let me know- otherwise, have a great day everyone!
