If proven guilty of knowingly taken steroids, Jones (23-1 MMA, 17-1 UFC) faces a potential four-year suspension after already having served a one-year term for a failed drug test, which Jones later explained was the result of a tainted sexual enhancement pill.
Jones has yet to offer any explanation for this latest failed test since the news broke Aug. 22. Bisping(30-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC) has thoughts.
“Its fair to say theres no smoke without fire,” Bisping said. “This isnt his first time. So, I guess were going see how this thing unfolds, but its not looking good.
When asked if Jones deserves to be banned for life from ever competing again in MMA, Bisping did not mince words.
I believe so, Bisping said. If you have a history of taking performance-enhancing drugs, theres no place for it. This is a vicious sport. Its not for everybody. Were not trying to put a ball into a basket. Were trying to you can dress it up however you want were trying to beat our opponents, either into submission or knock them out. Performance-enhancing drugs have no place in this sport.For complete coverage of UFC 214, check out the UFC Events section of the site.
