Despite failing multiple drug tests, Jon Jones lands sports nutrition sponsorship

MMA: UFC 214-Cormier vs Jones Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Not only did Jon Jones test positive for performance-enhancing drugs, he tested positive while telling the mixed martial arts (MMA) community that he was using products from GAT, the sports nutrition company that boasts “superior strength and massive gains.”

Since GAT quickly released a statement insisting Jones failed for substances not found in any of its products, it would suggest that whatever GAT provided wasn’t getting the job done, forcing “Bones” to look elsewhere for his MASSIVE GAINZ. Either way, it’s just not a good look.

There’s a reason Jones wasn’t sponsored by Bud Light after his DUI arrest back in 2012.

Not even a second failed test at UFC 214, one that stripped Jones of his 205-pound strap, could keep GAT from getting back into the “Bones” business, a decision recently announced on social media.

Take a look:

Alrighty then.

If Jones is lining up sponsors, that would suggest that he may be near the end of his drug test suspension, handed down by United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in the wake of his “no contest” against Daniel Cormier.

That said, I do find it rather unusual that USADA, unlike most other cases, never really provided any details regarding his future. Perhaps some clarification will be provided when Jones makes his Octagon return.

I hear this card is in need of a main event.
