“SMOKE & MIRRORS” ON COCAINE TESTS
San Francisco, CA- What got lost in the story of UFC light heavyweight (205 lbs.) Jon Jones testing positive for Cocaine a month prior to his win last week over Daniel Cormier was the fact that JJ’s Testosterone level was .29 to 1. Ideally, Jones’s level should be about 4 or 5 to 1. Nobody tests that low unless they are like 90 years old, or have abused their bodies with Steroids to an extent where they cannot NO LONGER produce the hormone that is the driving force in the male body.
CHEATERS REWARDED WITH NOW BANNED T.R.T.
Fighters like Dan Henderson, Vitor Belfort, Chael Sonnen, these men did cheat and were rewarded for a while when the UFC was backing Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Last year the Nevada Athletic Commission jumped in and banned TRT use by athletes in combat sports. In short, this was “Legalized Steroids” and the UFC only woke up after Vitor beat UFC Prez Dana White’s friend Michael Bisping in incredible fashion.
DO THE MATH PLEASE
If an 80-year old man has 20% of the Testosterone, and an average man peaks at 5-1, then Jon Jones apparently has a LOWER Testosterone level than that a man entering his ninth decade of life.
