Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones stood in front of the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) earlier today (Feb. 27, 2018) to answer for his failed drug test following his UFC 214 title fight against Daniel Cormier last July.

And it didn’t go too well for “Bones.”

His license was revoked and he was fined a sum of $205,000 for the infraction, which was his second to date, but first under the California commission. Still, Jones has to wait and see if United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA) hands him a longer suspension from competing in MMA overall.

So much for this.

Naturally, many in the mixed martial arts (MMA) community took to social media to react to the news, and the feedback was mixed, to say the least.

You’ve seen the Twitter reactions, what’s yours?
