Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Jon Jones Unhurt After Crashing His Ride, Other Motorist Not So Lucky

(Couple hours later, the owner of an Albuquerque body shop tweeted: “Affluent fighter dude needs complete rebuild on front driver’s side of Chrysler 300. GOD IS GOOD!” PicProps: @JonnyBones)

What is with these young people today and crashing their cars just before big fights? UFC light heavyweight prospect Jon Jones smashed up his Chrysler 300 on Wednesday afternoon while he and a carload of teammates were on their way to a dog park in between training sessions, according to the fighter’s own Twitter account. Jones was uninjured and his upcoming fight with Ryan Bader will reportedly not be effected. One partly hilarious, partly dreadful but altogether telling side note to this is that Jones immediately jumped on his Twitter after the wreck to declare “GOD IS GOOD” … even though he later admitted a woman in the other car left the scene on a stretcher.

"I just got into a car accident, police said it wasn’t my fault,” Jones wrote, in a compilation of tweets courtesy of MMA Mania. “I walked away without a scratch, GOD IS GOOD…. Hopefully, I get blessed with one of the fight bonuses, my insurance hasn’t kicked in yet and I may have just taken a major loss… Everyone’s okay, me and some teammates were on our way to the dog park in between practices, good thing we were all wearing our seatbelts. I refuse to allow this situation to steal my joy, the fight will go on."

Then, an hour later, in response to the question “Other person OK?” from one of his followers, Jones tweeted: “I really hope so, she was taken away on a stretcher.”

So, there you have it folks: God is good … to Jon Jones. Course, we knew that already, didn’t we?

Draino I say this having never met you but, aren''t you a little old to still have an imaginary friend?
seriously you and you non believer friend tweddledick can both eat a huge bag of dicks.
I hate douchebags like you 2. You say stupid shit and when you get told, you come back with even lamer stupid shit. fuck off.
I dont have to even be angry to tell you how much you are both offensive morons who talk the dumbest shit ever. take the hint, fuck off, and stay fucked off.
If your excuse for not believing in God is how I react to your goofy talk, then you are looking for excuses.
You have nothing else to offer this board towards the subject matter so all you got left is to fuck with someones religious beliefs, that makes you a douchebag and you cant reverse that on me. have fun being total douches both of you, hell or 3 or 4 of you that said that stupid shit.

@ rwilsonr
That's one of the things YOU like about him. I don't think everybody would agree with ya. Although I have to admit sometimes his bag o dicks line will make me chuckle. I agree there are some people who react poorly to public displays of religion. but if drano takes offense to this he fails to understand the religon or god he is supposedly defending. I don't know why I still engage with him, I guess I trying to figure out if he is just playing a character or if he is the next jared from tuscon.
RwilsonR- January 20, 2011 at 6:39 pm
@ twoleft - to your credit, you came into the argument after the people who were personally irritated and offended already expressed their piece. I understand the point about Jones' statement being inappropriate based on the woman injured, since it was made in the article itself. I don't really agree, but whatever. But there are a lot of people who hate anyone who dares to give any thanks to God or Jesus for any reason. I just don't get that.

And drano is always pleasantly angry, and that's one of the thigs we like best about him.

Wait, I think I am experiencing deja vu, was the woman prego? Was there a police chase? How many energy drinks did he consume?

Sorry I misspelled an imaginary word. And while I'm at it sorry for all the words I will misspell in the future.
I don't see that anyone was personally offended that jon jones thanked god,just that the timing seems odd or inapprprite. I said my piece earlier so I won't repeat it.
So let me get this straight, dranos anger and name calling is justified by his perception that some people were offended when jon jones thanked god? Isn't that the definition of two wrongs don't make a right? I can tell you this much, that not wwjd.
RwilsonR- January 20, 2011 at 5:08 pm
What I don't get is why it is a personal affront to so many people when someone thanks God? Who gives a shit if he thanks God? It isn't like he attacked your belief system, and called you stupid, like you are doing to him for saying something pretty innocuous. And I'm not particularly religious myself, but I see no reason to be offended if someone wants to thank God, or believe in God, or anything else, so long as they aren't using that as a reason to fly some fucking planes into some fucking buildings. Jon Jones isn't hurting me by believing what he believes, so why should I be irritated if he says something about his beliefs?

So I can totally understand where drano's anger is coming from. And yes, that is how you spell drano. There is no fucking 'i' in it! It is right there in his name, spelled correctly.

You're asking me to speculate on why Jon Jones might think he won't receive an insurance settlement? And then you state he won't have to worry about it because someone else will pay? Obviously he isn't sure how it will work out.

You were wrong, so you try to fault what i said. Grow up.

Since, once again you are wrong about insurance.

The other driver, if insured, may have had property damage coverage, but in a collision w/ two vehicles, his insurance company will pay him and they will try to recover the cost from the other insurance company.

Dude, try to speculate on topics you know something about and you won't get flamed...
budsellers- January 20, 2011 at 3:09 pm
@drainokills - you appear to be very pissed off about people stating their own opinions on the internet. you also seem to really dislike anyone who does not share your beliefs.

however, we do not believe in god so how can we hate him/her/it? just because a person does not believe in your god is no reason to automatically call them names and it is certainly not true that anyone who does not believe in god is a god hater. we do not hate santa or the tooth fairy either.

this is what is wrong with our country(usa). just because we disagree on issues or beliefs is no reason to be a hater, incite violence or use hateful rhetoric.
twoleftfeet- January 20, 2011 at 2:20 pm
Please explain how I can not believe in god and hate him at the same time?
twoleftfeet- January 20, 2011 at 2:13 pm
Think of it this way. You and your child are in a car crash. You are ok but your child is badly injured. While you might very well thank god that you were unharmed, ii doubt you would do so without addressing the health of your child first. This situation is really no different. If Jones was really being a good christian, or just a good person in general, he shoulve probaly showed a little more concern for the lady taken away on a stretcher and not his own personal well being

Drainokills, thanks for reaffirming my disbelief in god. Maybe you were trying to be ironic. But I doubt it.
the ONLY thing you "reaffirmed" was you are a stupid cocksucker, but don't worry, I think we all see that, and saw that before you opened your stupid atheist mouth.
Maybe you were trying to be cool, cause it seems thats the "cool thing to do is a be a douchebag GOD hater, but what it makes you is a loser.
If you don't believe in God then go take a fucking flying leap off a cliff, after all the next step of "life" wont be in heaven or hell for you I guess you will just come back, maybe as an ant......yeah that would suit you. Insignificant in your second life as you are in your first.
Fuck off.

I suppose that safe auto insurance sponsor was appropriate..

If I was thanking a God for marketing purposes I'd sure as hell be thanking the Messiah*(coming of the Messiah? Not sure how that works exactly) even if I was a Gentile. I'll take that Zionist money all day, playa..

*Perhaps Zenu, God of the Hollywood Stars. Tom Cruise/Big Willy Smith money is fine by me too, nawmsayin.

I'm not saying that everyone who praises God after an accomplishment is genuine ( i.e. every gangster rapper in the world). I'm just saying that we shouldn't rip him for him expressing his beliefs. Also, I don't think its wrong to praise God when you are being paid by sponsors. Even pastors get paid. I do think some do it for attention and for other wrong reasons, but I think he is genuine. Maybe I misunderstood your comment and my comment doesn't fit what you were saying, so if I did, I apologize.


He thanked God for his own safety. His own end to this circumstance. I don't have a problem with that. Just like I thank God for my wife and kids. I don't feel like I should feel bad for thanking him for them even though there are people who have lost their wife or kids. Also, this is my opinion and if it doesn't fit with what you were saying I'm sorry. I know I'm not the smartest man, but I praise God I'm not any dumber! lol God IS good.
twoleftfeet- January 20, 2011 at 12:29 pm
Uh....sniffer. the issue isn't that he beleives in god, the issue is that he proclaims that god is great (or thanked god) and then casually admits later that the lady in the other car got taken away in an ambulance.
One of the main ideas of christianity is to put others ahead of yourself. Mr. Jones seems to not understand this or has forgotten this.
budsellers- January 20, 2011 at 12:29 pm
@sniffer - when you are not receiving sponsorship dollars in the same moment that you are proudly proclaiming your faith, that is true. i am not saying this guy is a fake, but only christians, who agree with your point, care that he is a outspoken christian. i am not sure how many christians actually agree with your point though. i am sure there are sponsors who agree or like that in their athletes.

the cynic in me suspects the reasons for for praising god during the brief moment you have to share yourself on the mic with joe rogan is marketing.

if the lady could not tell her own story of the accident, then how can a cop determine the truth of who caused the accident?
mmanimal- January 20, 2011 at 12:11 pm
Morningwood, you have a point (pun intended). The dog park story doesn’t add up.

By the way, I love the God/no-god outrage—who gives a shit if JJ loves him some (pretend) God? Lots of famous athletes praise their God, probably because they’re not sad people like us posting on MMA websites. God or no-god, we all have our illusions—pretending you don’t only shows your ignorance, especially when ripping off Nietzsche’s “God is dead.”
Sniffer-Piffits- January 20, 2011 at 12:09 pm
If someone doesn't eat pork because of their religeon do people say, "Come on! Eat some fucking pork already! No body cares that your gos says don't eat pork beacause God is dead!"? No. So why do we rip on Christians for declaring their love and faith for God? A big part of Christianity is not do deny your faith because of who is around you or the situation you are in. He's not trying to convert anyone or telling anyone they have to believe what he does, just proclaiming his faith in God.I'm sure I'll catch hell for this post, but whether you believe or not, you should at least know what it is you say you don't believe.
