UFC FINES JON JONES $25,000 FOR VIOLATION OF ATHLETE CODE OF CONDUCT POLICY

The UFC announced today that it has fined light heavyweight champion Jon Jones $25,000 for violating the organization’s Athlete Code of Conduct policy. Jones tested positive for cocaine during an out-of-competition drug test conducted by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Dec. 4, 2014. The $25,000 will be donated to a substance abuse prevention program.

The UFC came to this decision after reviewing the facts surrounding the issue, and after receiving confirmation from the Nevada Athletic Commission that Jones passed all required drug tests following his bout at UFC 182 on Jan. 3

  1. with his pay per view check of over 800,000 buys times $2 (conservative guess) he probably made about $1.6 million. With his disclosed pay being $550,000, that's puts his pay for the event at roughly $2.1 Million. So they fined him slightly over 1% of his of his event pay. And they made him stay 1 night in rehab. Well shit son, that'll teach 'e! Huh Dana White ?
