I want to apologize to all my fans that have been let down by the news of me not competing in the title fight against Chris Weidman. I wanted nothing more than to go and compete for the belt. As you all know, I have been doing a legal treatment approved by every commission I fight under called TRT for a health deficiency that I have. As of yesterday the Nevada commission banned the use of TRT. I am not exempt from the rules. I respect the Commission’s ruling, and have dropped my TRT program as of yesterday.  My body wouldn't have had enough time to acclimate and I wouldn't be able to meet the new requirements of the commission swiftly enough to be licensed for the main bout and permit the UFC sufficient time to promote it.  I am prepared to fight for the championship belt without my TRT program.  I look forward to competing under the new set of regulations. I want to thank all my fans, the UFC, and all the commissions for their unwavering support and I will come back stronger than ever!  I'm waiting for the winner.

  • jammasterd@mikejonesowns well, your insults really rocked me to my core....NOT! I can have an opinion when I pay to watch the fights, which I do. So yes I will say whatever I want to and have an opinion. Fat, yes. Ugly, yes. Lonely, no. Dont talk about how I look cause I bet you arent a super model or anything so get the fuck outta here. Im not the one being an asshole to people for having an opinion on something im clearly allowed to. Fuckin troll.
  • jammasterd@mikejonesowns also, id like to know what my priorities are since you seem to know me and whats best for me.
  • jammasterd@mikejonesowns haha ok whatever.you talk shit on how I look and yet cant show yourself? Your words mean nothing to me. Ill keep voicing my opinions on fighters as long as im paying to watch fight cards which in turn gets them paid as well.
