If you list the possible reasons for his suspension weed would be least condemning. So I guess it's possible that he is just that stupid, I think it's far more likely that isn't the case. I think you guys are the ones being unrealistic here. It's not the logical outcome.
I could careless too be honest what it was that he took. I don't have facts so I'm not going to sit here and whine about it or call him a cheater until I know for sure what he took. His performance against Herman wasn't anything to be amazed over, his cardio was still shot, he's just a far better grappler.

So I bow out of this conversation about what he was banned for.

I hope he can get his career back on track, but wish he'd stay at MW.

Maybe whatever he tested for wasn't vegan and he doesn't want to get shunned from his social circle of vegans.


Is there any animal byproducts in any performance enhancer? Srs question.

That's an interesting question. I'm not sure myself, but would like to know as well

Maybe he took too much Tylenol the night before. Maybe he took a sleep aide the night before. Maybe he took a drink of one of his teammates contaminated bottles and doesn't want to out that teammate? Or maybe he cheated.

Honestly it was probably a pain killer unless it was something more intense then weed and he has a habit. It's what makes the most sense. PEDs probably a year, weed he'd probably just admit to it. Probably some sort of pain killer or something along those lines a pharmaceutical of some kind. I don't see roids though

That would assume nothing happen when a positive test and suspension prove something clearly did. Blame Jake for not admitting what illegal substance he took. That act alone should make people suspicious.

The length of the suspension means nothing for God's sake, it was a different commission with different rules.

Honestly it makes sense that he doesn't feel he can bulk to 185 without PEDs but I just don't know why he doesn't start using TRT like everyone else.

Oh, good. We have someone with a working knowledge of every athletic commission, their policies, procedures, and guidelines. No need for curiosity any longer, boys. Roflcopter, fountain of all MMA knowledge, is on the case!
