Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones failed his second drug test back at UFC 214. Still, USADA ultimately decided to issue the former title holder a retroactive 15-month suspension from the sport.
With Jon Jones once again eligible to compete on Oct. 28, 2018, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is seemingly not happy with the situation. Taking to Twitter, the Dagestan native first voiced his opinion.
“Now I understand #usada is n.1 bullshit people. To much politics.”

To much politics.

Later speaking to TMZ Sports, Nurmagomedov added a few more words to his statement.
“USADA give my friends three years. They have first time. Problem with USADA. They give us three years, my friends. Jon Jones has second time problem and they give him one and a half year. I think is very bad.”
