Jon Jones’ quest for redemption added so much intrigue during the build to his UFC 214 title showdown with then-champ Daniel Cormier. It was so intriguing, in fact, the UFC even made an official trailer centering around that particular story line.

Cormier was having none of it and remained relentless with claims of Jones – a previous doping offender, mind you – being a life-long cheating, which made Cormier the de facto villain in the rivalry. Jones took exception to the constant attacks on his character and would often defend himself.

In one such instance, just eight days before the fight, Jones sent out a tweet that will make you cringe, considering Tuesday’s stunning news of a third overall potential doping violation:

It’s important to note that Jones is afforded due process in all of this. And, for what it’s worth, the initial reaction from the Jones camp is one of disbelief, and that includes one of Jones’ teammates claiming a setup was in the works.

But that tweet, though.
