On the morning of last Saturday (06), the world of MMA was surprised by yet another controversy involving the name of Jon Jones. Accused of threatening an anti-doping company agent, the heavyweight champion (up to 120,2kg) spoke on his Instagram confirming that the tone of the visit was not friendly, however, he showed a video recording the officers' departure and denied any raid more severe during testing at home.

“I want to address reports that I allegedly threatened an officer's life and took a phone. I want to clarify that there is a video that shows the two testers leaving my house after the testing session, where we exchanged greetings and a hug. Although I was frustrated with the lack of professionalism and used profanity out of frustration, it ended amicably, not at all threatening. I was actually celebrating a friend's birthday party at my house, and I believe it's perfectly fine to celebrate in the comfort of my own home. I must say that this particular agent behaved quite unprofessionally and even violated standard protocol. In my 20 years of being drug tested, I have never come across an incident like this with an agent,” Jones said.
