Jon Jones refuses to answer questions about drug testing
Jon Jones and Dana White antagonized a reporter who tried to press them about the decision to let the former champ fight at UFC 232 on Saturday despite his positive drug test.
The UFC held a press conference on Thursday, two days ahead of the big fight card that was moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. One reporter asked why Jones was being allowed to fight despite the trace amounts of a banned substance being found in a pre-fight drug test. Jones refused to answer the question and had the backing of White, who also wouldn’t answer it.
Jon Jones is a piece of human trash. A vile tyrant. Look at the way he speaks to this reporter, who’s doing her job & asking actual questions rather than pandering like the rest. He’s a putrid, egomaniacal sociopath & you can call me a hater all you like because I despise him. pic.twitter.com/wo6tqQedPm

As far as the UFC is concerned, they’ve already issued a statement on the matter and explained why Jones has been cleared to fight. They will be taking no further questions and entertaining no further scrutiny about their choice, regardless of how inconsistent it’s proven to be. This is unprofessional behavior on their parts.
