As the news hit the internet of former UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones failing a drug test, fellow UFC fighters reacted to the situation. As noted, Jones was stripped of his title & could face up to a one-year suspension.
Here’s how fellow UFC fighters responded:
Mark Hunt’s Statement: “Look at these f*****s. You’ve got Jon Jones for instance, that guy is the best, one of the best fighters in the world but he’s a cheater, just like Brock Lesnar. You’re all a pack of frickin’ dog cheats, that’s all you are, nothing else. So now the two f*****g biggest cheaters in the world are going to fight, oh f**k, I’m not gonna waste my money watching two cheaters fight, why would I? They’re cheaters in the end. That’s basically all they are, they should get nothing. I used to respect Jon Jones before this but I don’t respect him after this. When you get caught for doping and he got caught for the same dope that Lesnar did, you shouldn’t. He’s not a martial artist, none of them are. They get no respect from me, none. I wouldn’t want to waste my f*****g time watching that s**t.”
Daniel Cormier’s Statement:
“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.”
