WWE Hall of Famer and MMA enthusiast Jim Ross has updated his blog at JRsBarBQ.com with some thoughts about Saturday night’s big UFC 200 pay-per-view. Specifically, Ross addressed the controversy surrounding Jon Jones’ USADA drug test violation as well as Brock Lensar’s fight with Mark Hunt being promoted to the show’s main event.
JR called Jones’ situation “one of the most disturbing and unfortunate matters” of this kind in sports in years. “Is this a matter of entitlement, flawed character, or just a bad seed who feels that he is above the rules?” Ross pondered. “Or could it be the negligence of his camp for not more closely evaluating what ‘supplements’ that Bones was taking … It’s these talents JOB to know what they are putting their bodies. End of story.”
He also echoed the sentiment of virtually everybody looking forward to Lesnar vs. Hunt, in that it almost certainly won’t go the distance. “Brock Lesnar is now in the main event of UFC 200 vs Mark Hunt in a three rounder. Lesnar is the underdog versus the hard hitting Hunt who will be looking to KO Lesnar early and definitely Saturday night. The first 60 seconds of the fight are crucial for both heavyweights and this one will end long before the end of the third round.”
