    A smart, skillful, and unbeatable cancer. If you are diagnosed with Jon Jones, your ass is dead. He beats chemo in the clinch and takes that holistic shit down and pounds it out.

    Exactly, except for the version of Jones he fought.

    I respect Gus as a fighter and I respect his performance in that fight. But he lost.

    Agreed. It was close. I scored it for Jones. More importantly, so did all three judges. Like I said, I respect Gus for his performance in that fight. But he didn't win it.

    Currently under USADA, DC is 20-0-2NC

    DC is yet to actually fight a "clean" Jones so its hard to tell but 1 of the "wins" Jones has over DC is deemed a NC under USADA due to multiple failed drug tests that include Steroids, Turinabol, Clomiphene & Letrozole.

    DC very well could be 2-0 over a "clean" Jones in this USADA era.

    DC should have an opportunity to fight a "clean" Jones

    DC is just better at passing USADA tests.

    One of the few cases where I think everyone would be totally ok with a fighter juicing to grills

    The median salary of a UFC fighter is 22K per fight.

    3 fights a year = 66k.

    Although they lose about 20-30% of their purse to medical exams, trainings and managers. Which makes it

    40k. Annually Before taxes. (If they fought 3 times)

    Apparently even those guys can afford better stuff than Jon Jones....

    For several reasons those fighters who fit your description get tested less, therefore lowering their chances of testing positive.

    Alphas don't use words like "alphas or betas". Alphas have so much confidence in themselves that they would rather go down on their shield than take any outside help or cheat to win. jon outlasted Cormier in the first fight (because of the juice) and in the second fight, well we all know how that turned out. I've mentioned before how, even though jones knew he would be heavily scrutinized, he still couldn't take a chance on fighting Cormier clean. If that makes jones "alpha" to you then you may be having some difficulty understanding the concept. Is normal, is Sherdog.

    Bingo, Rocky! This is what I say: if you cheat, it is an automatic forfeit. Jon Jones was terrified of getting his ass whipped by a 40 year old who he had every possible physical advantage.
