Michael Bisping remains skeptical of the situation that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones finds himself in. It all started in the lead up to his fight at the UFC 232 PPV event once it was revealed that one drug test had metabolites of turinabol still in his system.

This is the same drug that got him a 15 month suspension due to it being a banned substance. It led to the NSAC not willing license him to fight due to it being a “drug-testing abnormality” and forced the UFC to move the show to California.

Skeptical

Despite repeated adverse findings, the post-fight drug tests came back clean. Now, the former UFC middleweight champion thinks it all seems a little convenient.

“So Jon Jones passed his post-fight drug test, which was the question that I asked him which pissed him off. Which led to him being kind of annoyed with me on the post-fight show,” Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast. “I don’t want to turn this into Michael Bisping sh*tting on Jon Jones because he’s a legendary fighter. He was the youngest ever champion in the UFC. But to me – and I don’t know the science, I’m speaking purely from the standpoint that this is a fair question to ask.

The narrative as to why he failed the drug test and failed multiple drug tests in August, September, and December,. Is that these metabolites from the turinabol were in his system from years ago and they could still be there for years. Then all of a sudden he tests positive and then it’s brought to the forefront – Devil’s advocate, you would have to be f*cking stupid to continue microdosing. Then all of a sudden, voila, the next time he gets tested it is out of his system. I don’t know. I’m not saying that is the reality. I’m just saying that is the first thing that I thought and I’d be lying if I didn’t say so.”

“That was the narrative going into this fight: ‘Listen, this is remnants, it was leftover from whenever it was.’ But the point of the matter is that Jeff Novitzky was saying this could be in his system for a long, long time. Then , lo and behold, he tests clean.”

Staying Hopeful

Jones is slated for a clash with number three contender Anthony Smith at UFC 235. Despite the fact that Bisping is still keeping his distance, he did make one thing perfectly clear. That’s the fact that he’s hopeful that Jones continues to compete clean.

“I’m glad he tested clean, I really am,” said Bisping (H/T to MMAfighting). “I hope he continues to do so. He’s a great talent, he’s a great fighter, and I’m glad Jon Jones is back. I’m glad anytime fighters come back.

“I hope he stays clean. I don’t hope he passes his tests and gets away with it. I hope he stays clean. They’re two very different things. I don’t hope he gets away with it. I hope he’s competing on a level playing field and we get to see the best Jon Jones that we can.”

Michael Bisping explains why he has no sympathy for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Leading up to Jones’ latest fight, there was some drama to go along with it. Once it was revealed that one of Jones’ test from December was found to have an ‘atypical finding,’ the UFC 232 event was moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

Bisping’s Postion

Bisping went on record by stating that he has zero sympathy for Jones’ case once the UFC champ received criticism from the public.

“Admitting that the last time (2017 suspension) is getting him off this time. But you denied (taking steroids) last time! So which is it?” Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast (H/T to Bloody Elbow). “Right? You’re just cheating all over the place. Guess what, the sad reality is, he’s not the f—king only one.”

“If he wasn’t cheating in the first place, then it wouldn’t have been there in the first place. I have really really limited sympathy. In fact, I have no sympathy at all for the situation that he’s in,” he said. “I have no sympathy for the drug testing bullshit. This is not a case where there’s been no smoke, there’s no fire. There’s a f—king fire all over the place. You tested positive three times. The reason they’re in your system, is your f—king fault.”

Siutation

At the time, USADA claimed that it was just residual amounts from Jones’ 2017 drug test that made this finding known. In the mind of Bisping, he thinks this shouldn’t have been allowed for Jones due to his history. It all comes back to the fact that Jones tested positive on three separate drug tests.

“I think the whole thing is bullshit. I think it’s ridiculous,” Bisping said. “I think he shouldn’t have been in there. It’s very black and white. Just like when you take a sobriety test. You get pulled over, they suspect you’re drunk driving. You get alcohol in your system, you’re fucked. Same thing with steroids.”

“I’ve said it the whole time. My stance on that hasn’t changed. I understand why they’ve allowing this to go on. But I still think the thing is suspect, the thing is very fishy. I still think the whole thing is bullshit, to be honest.”

Michael Bisping claims to have had an interesting experience with newly crowned UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

The former UFC middleweight champion was working the UFC 232 event as an analyst for Fox Sports before and after the show. This is when he was  cursed out by Jones for some questions he asked.

Apparently, Jones wasn’t very happy with these questions that were asked on the post-fight show. The future UFC Hall of Famer reflected on the incident during the latest episode of the Believe You Me podcast.

“Alright, Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson Friday, on the weigh-in show. We had to interview Jon Jones on the weigh-in show, Bisping stated (H/T to Fightful). Of course, every time we do this we at Fox Studios, which is obviously a well polished machine. It’s not like like Believe You Me, where we just freestyle. Everything is planned with a fine tooth comb. Its proper TV so they have to know, the producers, what questions are asked. So they tell us what questions to ask and they give us them on little printed out cards. Now the only thing is that I don’t care about asking difficult questions and I asked Jon Jones some questions.”

Jones’ Comments

The former UFC middleweight champion had a great career and he hung up his gloves back in May 2018. He continued by telling the story about how Jones voiced his displeasure during a commercial break.

“Which apparently he didn’t like, because after the fight, we interviewed him again. When we were on commercial break, he was talking shit. ‘Is that mother f*cker’ to whoever the powers to be are at Fox, ‘is that mother f*cker Michael Bisping going to be asking questions again, with his dumb sh*t.’ I was like ‘oh yeah.”

Bisping brought up how the questions about Jones’ recent drug test that caused UFC 232 being moved from Vegas to Inglewood caused some heat.

“I asked him here’s what we never talked about. He tested positive in August, he tested positive in September and he tested positive in December. Now they’re saying that the metabolites and the presence of whatever he took. Turinabol, can stay in his body for a long time. So, if you put that all together, he’s probably going to test positive after the fight. So I said ‘Jon, has there been any discussion as to what happens if you test positive after the fight?’ Because I’ll tell you what, if I’m Alexander Gustafsson and you stop me in the third round. But the mother f*cker tests positive. I don’t care how many small pinches of salt it is in an Olympic size swimming pool.”

Nothing Personal

At the end of the day, Bisping wanted to make it known that he’s a big fan of Jones and likes watching him fight. He was just trying to get some answers out of him.

“I want that overturned to a f*cking no contest because you tested positive after the fact. I asked him that and he just said ‘well I’m really looking forward to this fight and that’s gonna be great.’ He just totally ignored the question, so I went back at him again and I kind of slightly reworded it. Once again he ignored it and you can see that he wasn’t happy. I wasn’t trying to be a dick with Jon. I love watching Jon Jones fight, he’s incredible. I’ve been around him enough throughout my fight career. Jon’s always been cool with me. I’ve always liked the guy, but in that position we’re in, you gotta ask those questions.”

The UFC 232 fallout continues as former middleweight champion Michael Bisping went off on Frank Mir regarding his USADA statement.

The Jon Jones saga continues as he was flagged for an “atypical” sample on Dec. 9 by USADA. The trace amount of turinabol that was found in his system was ruled to be from a rare “pulsing” effect and not recent ingestion.

Several fighters, including Mir, have had their run-ins with USADA in the past. Mir released a statement documenting his interactions with the anti-doping agency. He claimed he was told that a “pulsing” effect just wasn’t possible.

The always-outspoken Bisping didn’t care for the former heavyweight champions assessment of the USADA situation. And on a recent edition of his “Believe You Me” podcast he gave his two cents. (h/t mmanews.com)

“The Count” Goes Off On Mir

“Who cares! Frank Mir always has too much to say about all the wrong things. I’m sorry I love Frank Mir, he’s a great guy but this is the problem. … The problem that this does cause is that it gives everybody that has tested positive in the past. It gives them a reason to now get on their soapbox and start complaining and say ‘well this was one that I took a long time ago and I didn’t get the same treatment.’ Bearing in mind, remember that Frank Mir also said that he tested positive because he ingested kangaroo meat and the steroids were in the kangaroo meat because farmers inject cattle and livestock with steroids to make them bigger.

“The only problem with that Frank is that kangaroos are not f*cking bred in captivity or they’re not farmed at all they’re just caught in the wild. So that whole theory’s out the window.”

Bisping then pointed out the obvious that the real story was Jones. “The Count” continued to berate Mir by poking fun at the fact at how Mir because he now fights in Bellator:

“I honestly couldn’t give a f*ck. The big news here is Jon Jones, ‘DC,’ [and] the fans. Frank Mir fights for Bellator now and has his knickers in a twist because his name was dragged through the mud. You can’t deny that Frank Mir’s body f*cking all of a sudden put on 500 pounds overnight.”
