              Few people care about jones using drugs because john beat DC using his skills. Now that Jones is clean he is still undefeated beat Gustafson and Smith and Thiago

                    Cormier fought just a little too long. From a would-be champ champ to no belts and knocked out.

                          truly dont understand why jones gets the cheers instead of dc. dc didnt hit and run like a pussy, dc didnt test positive for steroids, dc doesnt do drugs. dc is an olympian, he IS the american dream, and a wholesome family man. the complete opposite of jones. people who hate on dc define the word haters and have a mental issue

                                    @Dutyxion dude... wifes dads rase was involed ten other people to outside inside the cage it was to much. Trust me im from sweden i know this huliganism from the mentality of islam they will fucking hunt you till your are in hospital their loyality its to much to handle the kill eat die toghether . Jon an dc are puppets compare to connor and khabib. To be honest connor has big big balls to go againgst a whole nation who killing the world right now and you know who . Jon and dc nate are puppets to connor beacause of that and the stage he took to FIGHT bigger fighter. In higher division and took khabib after 2 years lay off

                                  DC deserves so much respect and a storyline that's more than 13 minutes...🙄

                                      Man I used to say Jon Jones was my favorite fighter... I will say he’s still one of the most exciting fighters and I still think without the juice he’s still one of the very best. However DC has been clean and is one of the baddest fighters ever to compete. He’s class and what this sport needs. Shout out to DC much respect and love to DC!!

                                                      Dude, when you beat Stipe you obviously and intentionally poked him in the eyes at least a half dozen times. Then he beat your ass in the rematch. I sometimes wonder if Daniel is on the verge of a mental breakdown.

                                                        Makes perfect sense the crowd, the fickle crowd, the rabble, would take to and identify with a man who hits and runs then comes back and runs again never thinking about the injured pregnant woman, the cocaine user, the steroid user and later the assaulter of women in clubs. The crowd isnt made of the same qualities as a Cormier they see more of themselves personally in Jones, hes there standard bearer, if they were only much better physically they could be him but they could never be a DC.

                                                                  Those were Jones toughest fights and his toughest opponents but the 1 thing he had over them was steroids not saying Jon isn’t a great fighter but he’s also a cheater
