Jon Jones could soon be seen fighting in the Octagon.
The former UFC light heavyweight champ received a 15-month suspension by USADA, the UFC’s anti-doping policy, for his failed drug test from a sample collected July 28, 2017. Jones will be eligible to fight again Oct. 28. This was Jones’ second failed drug test.
Check out below how the pros reacted to the news of Jones’ 15-month USADA suspension:

How do you deter a repeat drug user? Dont test him when suspended. Dont give him the 4yr or 2yr suspensions. Instead gift him a 15month deal expiring a week before one of the biggest shows in #NewYork #MoneyTalks @ufc @usantidoping @UFC_CA @dc_mma https://t.co/FXlZhqVLQs
You ever hear people say “MMA is fake” or “UFC is fixed”? This Jon Jones shit is what they mean, it’s not the outcomes but the idea of “sport” itself that is fixed. Money rules all. What a fucking joke— “Filthy” Tom Lawlor (@FilthyTomLawlor) September 19, 2018
FUCK USAD This shit is fake— Ali Abdelaziz (@AliAbdelaziz00) September 20, 2018
