Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones may have a history with Colby Covington and now ‘Chao’ giving his thoughts on Jones possible early Octagon return.
Earlier this year, Jones had his license revoked and handed a $205,000 fine from the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) after he tested positive for a steroid before his victory over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 last July. Jones case is under review by USADA, the UFC’s anti-doping partner; they are expected to conduct a hearing with ‘Bones’ later this year, and he’s facing lengthy sanctions. However, jones coach predicted that former champion would make a return in 2018.

“I feel like if that does happen that he comes in before that two-year time frame, we would find out a lot about USADA,” Covington told Sonnen in a recent guest spot on the Beyond the Fight podcast. “I think they would lose a lot of credit.”
“If he ends up coming back before that two-year time frame, I would really have to question USADA’s legitimacy.”
Jones, scumbag management team, trying to payoff UFC and USADA somehow to scores early Octagon return, as UFC side wants to do business, if USADA clears Jones, then promotion will put on Jones fight to make money. Covington says it’s hidden agenda it all rooted to make money for a company.
“I think they’re trying to keep (Jones’) name in the headlines,” Covington said. “Obviously, that’s the name of the game is to keep your name hot. I think they’re using that more as leverage to keep his name out there at the possibility (of returning earlier).”
“You never know. His scumbag management team, Malki Kawa and those guys, they’re probably trying to pay off the UFC or USADA somehow to get him back earlier,” he added. “You never know the UFC’s side, they want to do business and make money so if he’s available, and USADA clears him, then they’re gonna want to do business and put him back out there to fight and make that company money.”
“They’ve got a $4 billion installment on that loan to pay back, so they’re gonna do whatever it takes to make money and pay back that loan.”
Do you think Jones will make a comeback by the end of 2018?
