Jon Jones reportedly passed a polygraph test, but does that prove anything?
But according to a report from MMAFighting.com, that’s the newest front in the battle to try and prove the UFC light heavyweight champion didn’t knowingly cheat in his third-round knockout of Cormier that was later overturned.
It does force us to ask ourselves some questions, however.
For instance, what if he hadn’t passed the test? Would news of that result have found its way into the headlines? Or would the Jones camp have reached an agreement with the PGP Polygraph & Interviewing Service of Albuquerque, N.M., to bury the results and never speak of them again?
But then, maybe USADA isn’t the intended audience for these test results. Instead, maybe it’s those of us in the court of public opinion.
Trouble is, in this situation, the lie detector can, at best, only tell us what Jones didn’t do. What it doesn’t tell us is where the mysterious Turinabol came from. And if Jones doesn’t know, who does?
