UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is facing a potential four-year suspension and the loss of his undisputed title.
But his tweeter feed on sunday is telling us something different?
Times like these remind me how blessed I truly am. So much to be grateful for

Dana white is not happy with anything around and while everyone is waiting for Sample “B” to come positive Dana said:
“I’m hearing that this drug is out of your system in two days. That’s what I’m hearing,” White said. “I don’t know enough about these things, but that’s what I’m hearing. So that would make sense (if Jones knowingly cheated). Plus, it’s all about who’s giving you advice. If he did do this, he didn’t go out and just get this himself. Somebody gave it to him.”
The last time Jones got in hot water, the consequences were less severe. An arbitrator hired by USADA ruled he didn’t intentionally cheat after a banned estrogen blocker was found in his system prior to UFC 200. Yet the anti-doping agency suspended the fighter one year for the “reckless” behavior that led to the positive.
This time around, there’s a lot on the line. A four-year suspension could end his career. But if his tweet is any indication of how he’s feeling, that’s something he’d rather not think about right now.
