UFC President Dana White shared some very interesting news while speaking with Jim Rome on his show regarding Jon Jones Anti-Doping Policy violation.
As reported earlier, White told Rome that Jones “did not take drug everyone thought he took.”
MMA Fighting followed up with more of what White had to say on Tuesday.
“I don’t even know if this is public. I didn’t know if I can talk about it,” White said. “Normally, I talk about anything, but when it comes to medical stuff, you can’t do it. It’s looking like Jon Jones did not take the drug everybody thought he took. It looks like it’s something else.
“I’ll let this thing play out and if that’s true and that’s what USADA and the Nevada State Athletic Commission say happened, it could look good for Jon Jones.”
While not totally out in the clear with the new findings of Jones’ case, White says that it is still on the former champion to have let USADA know exactly what he was putting in his body.
“He didn’t get a bum wrap,” White explained. “He definitely didn’t get a bum wrap, but the substance that he was on, it was a pill that you take when you’re coming off of steroids. But this thing is apparently in other things. Jon took something else.
“Where he doesn’t come off clean is you have to tell USADA everything that you put in your body leading up to the fight and he did not.”
