There’s obviously not a lot a manager can say off the cuff when their client fails a drug test, and in the case of Jon Jones – who fails these things like it’s his hobby – there’s a lot at stake. Like, you know, the millions in pay-per-view points Jones commands and whatnot. So any kind of statement a manager releases is going to be vague and no where near impinging on whatever future legal arguments are going to be made in defense of his client.
So. Here’s the sanitized statement from Jones’ management on his failed drug test, courtesy of MMAFighting:
We are all at a complete loss for words right now. Jon, his trainers, his nutritionists and his entire camp have worked tirelessly and meticulously the past 12 months to avoid this exact situation. We are having the samples tested again to determine the validity or source of contamination. Jon is crushed by this news and we are doing whatever we can as a team, to support him.
