UFC president calls Jon Jones ‘biggest waste of talent ever’

Disgraced mixed martial artist Jon Jones has been given plenty of chances by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), but his latest conundrum seems to be the final straw.

Less than a month later, his win was overturned and he got stripped of the title after testing positive for Turinabol, a banned anabolic steroid.

Speaking during an interview on The TSN MMA Show, UFC President Dana White couldn’t help but express his disappointment with the promotion’s former poster boy.

[It would be the biggest waste of talent] ever. Ever, in all of sports,” the UFC boss described Jones, as relayed by MMA Fighting.
