Bringing you the weird and the wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight …
Welcome to Midnight Mania!
“Such a beautiful moment. Man, I did a lot of right things to get back in this position.”
Those were Jon Jones’ first words on the mic after his UFC 214 win over Daniel Cormier. Now, they echo back hollow and empty, with the results coming back today that Jones tested positive for the steroid turinabol the day before the fight. The person hurt — and at the same time vindicated most of all by the revelation — is probably the man Jones left twitching on the canvas that night, his great rival, Daniel Cormier. In an official statement to MMAFighting.com, Cormier showed the classiness even Jones ascribes to him.
“It’s hard to find words to describe how I’m feeling right now. I’m disappointed to hear the news. It’s very emotional. We as athletes are entitled to due process, and I will refrain from saying much more until I know exactly what happened. In my mind, on July 29, I competed and I lost. I thought Jon Jones was the better man that day. I don’t know what to think anymore. I can’t believe we are going through all of this again. We will see what happens next. Thank you to all my fans who have supported me during this dark time. I love you all very much.”
