This Just In!
Well, it is déjà vu all over again… You may recall that on January 4th, we reported how mixed martial arts’ (MMA) greatest light-heavyweight fighter, Jon Jones, defeated an Olympian in a historic title defense. Then, just a few days later, we unfortunately had to update our readers that Jones failed a drug test, thereby tarnishing his reputation. Well, lo and behold, one month later, we write about Anderson Silva, the greatest MMA fighter of any weight class, returning to competition after enduring a horrific injury that almost derailed his career. Silva triumphed in his return (as we also reported), but in an unfortunate development, he, like Jones before him, has also failed a drug test (Silva’s opponent Nick Diaz also failed a drug test). So, in about a month’s time, three high profile fighters now have tainted legacies. Not surprisingly, fans and fighters alike are absolutely crushed.
