Of all the things that happened during the news storm and the controversy over the Jonah Jones fight at UFC 232, the only thing that still prevents UFC's heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is metabolism.
That is, metabolites that may or may not need to be in Jones (23-1 MMA, 17-1 UFC) system forever.
Cormier (23-1 MMA, 17-1 UFC) struggles to realize that the recently-worn heavyweight champion can simply allow her to continue her career with regard to the fluctuating levels of oral turbine metabolites that can remain forever in her body.
"In these situations I try to be logical and I do not think most people in VMA," he told MMAjunkie Radio. "This is a problem (Metabolites) should be long-lived or anything else, so I need to believe that every time you should have this – is it now allowed to have it in your body I do not understand if it's just a part When you fight with Jon Jones, you know that it's going to be an abnormal test, and you have to be okay with him because it's just there? It's hard to imagine logically about it.
– These are the kinds of things I have a problem with when I think logically as an adult. It just does not look fair. Because even if it is a long-standing thing that is showing, it is still not fair. I do not understand it and I do not understand. "

Jones has consistently refused to consciously take performance enhancers and said it was confirmed by the UFC's anti-doping anti-doping agency, USADA. After finding traces of the oral metabolite of the turinobule M3 in August and December, USADA decided that residual metabolites from the UFC 214 drug test resulted in a 15-month suspension for Jones. The agency was forbidden to subject the "double danger" fighters and pulled it out of experts who said that the pulsating effect that boosted the metabolites to appear and disappear in the Jones system did not increase efficiency.
UFC's Vice President for Health and Sports Success Jeff Novitzky recently told the video podcast "JRE MMA" that increasing a sudden increase in metabolic levels could have a more serious impact on Jones. However, he added that it would be "categorical unjust" to deny the 31-year-old a chance to compete.
Meanwhile, Cormier feels that's the reverse.
Last weekend, Jones took over Alexander Gustafsson for a pay-per-view event that moved to California when the Nevada State Athletic Commission athlete could not convene a hearing fast enough to issue a license to Jones. After three rounds, the double champion submitted to Gustafsson (18-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) to take over the UFC heavyweight title that was removed from the Cormier Camp.
Predictably, Cormier was not impressed with Jones' victory and attributed improvement to performance. Nothing has changed in his opinion of that struggle.
"I was honest," he said about his comments in social media. – I still believe in it. Hey, I can not overcome many people at the age of 40. But if you give me seven yards, I tell you, I'll win you.
Cormier is now battling former champion Brock Lesnar to defend his strap in the tough category. If Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) is not cleared for any reason, the fight with former champion Stomp Miocic (18-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) is his replacement.
Cormier, who said he could postpone retirement if injuries did not accelerate his exit, greeted Jones with a Twitter fight after UFC 232. But he also said the champion must be clean.
