Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones failed a drug test back in 2015 for benzoylecgonine, the primary metabolite of cocaine. The incident has since gained the former title holder an infamous reputation for alleged drug use. MMA reporter Ariel Helwani recently decided to poke fun at the incident in an interview with UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis.
Derrick Lewis is gearing up for his big octagon match up against Marcin Tybura. The two are set to throw down at UFC Fight Night 126, which takes place Feb. 18 inside the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. The heavyweight competitor recently sat down for an interview with Ariel Helwani on the most recent edition of The MMA Hour.
Before the fighter started speaking, Lewis mimicked snorting cocaine during the live stream of the interview. When the fighter raised his head to the camera, a white powder could by seen on Lewis’ face.
Helwani chuckled and then asked Lewis, “You on that…someone diet? I was going to say someone, but I don’t want to get in trouble.”
