The head of UFC caught Jon Jones in deception
During a recent altercation with Israel Adesanya, Jon Jones admitted to hiding under a cage from representatives Of the Nevada state athletic Commission to avoid out-of-competition testing for marijuana, and it seems that the former UFC champion’s version is not entirely true.
“They don’t test for marijuana,” UFC President Dana white told reporters in Abu Dhabi. “If he was worried about marijuana, they don’t test for marijuana during pre-testing. If it was an out-of-competition test, he would have passed it without any problems»
“I don’t know anything about it. But if you don’t have a fight scheduled, they don’t check you for marijuana”
Recall that the following dialogue took place between Jones and Adesanya.
Adesanya: “Fun fact! In 2010, I slept under the cage because I didn’t want to waste my energy going home and stayed in the gym until evening training, while Jonathan crawled under the cage to hide from USADA during an out-of-competition doping test. This is a fact, if someone suddenly forgot about it».
Jones: “Brother, you better explain your boob. I was hiding from the Nevada state athletic Commission, not USADA, because I smoked and was afraid of failing the grass test. This is the true truth».
