PostSubject: Jones now under investigation for perjury   Thu Jan 08, 2015 4:43 pm

http://www.mmafighting.com/2015/1/7/7509389/nevada-deputy-attorney-general-reviewing-whether-or-not-jon-jones
n Jones told the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) in September that he lost his Nike endorsement due to a brawl he had with Daniel Cormier during a press event in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Last week, Jones backtracked from that statement and now the Nevada deputy attorney general is reviewing whether or not Jones perjured himself under oath at the hearing, MMAFighting.com has learned.

NAC executive director Bob Bennett said the commission is aware of Jones' comments prior to UFC 182 and the matter has been sent up the ladder.

"They're considering it for review," Bennett said. "It's nothing new to us.

"It would be concerning if anyone lied during testimony."

This is a separate issue for Jones than the one that surfaced Tuesday. Jones tested positive for cocaine metabolites in an out-of-competition drug test taken Dec. 4. On Tuesday, Jones announced he would be entering into a drug-treatment facility. This comes just days after Jones successfully defended his UFC light heavyweight title against Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 on Jan. 3.

Nevada follows the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which stipulates that cocaine metabolites are not prohibited out of competition, only in competition. Therefore, Jones faced no immediate disciplinary action from the commission. Jones took a test one week later and was clean.

A source told MMAFighting.com that the failed test could come up the next time Jones applies for a license. Christopher Eccles, a Nevada deputy attorney general, could not comment on whether the two situations -- the failed drug test and alleged lying under oath -- would affect Jones fighting in the state in the future.

"That's something that will have to be looked at in conjunction with Bob Bennett," Eccles said.

Dana White thinks this is a good thing, and applauds Jones for admitting he lied and says he's doing the right thing.

i wonder why they were testing jones for cocaine if there is no penalty for having coke in your system. i also wonder is the information disclosed to the general public is against jones constitutional rights. i mean why test him if it doesnt make any difference if he has it in his system or not and by putting that information to the general public it would seem like a worthy law suit of defamation for jones.
