De Jesus suspended for marijuana use

source: mmajunkie.com
 

Isaac De Jesus' loss is Joe Soto's gain.

As MMAjunkie.com previously reported, the ex-Bellator champ took De Jesus' spot in a fight with Eddie Yagin at Tachi Palace Fights 10, which takes place Aug. 4.

The reason Soto got the call is because De Jesus (10-3 MMA, 2-2 TPF) tested positive for marijuana following his most recent appearance at Tachi Palace Fights 9.

I really don't see the big deal, you don't see people suspended for alcohol use...

I am a marijuana smoker. I am also a professional fighter. I think things like this are absolutely ridiculous. It is longest lasting drug (besides Steroids) that stays in your system. Its not right. Maybe the judges should start smoking weed. Atleast they would pay attention to the fights....I mean it can't get any worse.

shocking that a guy named De Jesus, or for that matter a guy that looks like Jesus, or hell if Jesus Christo himself, smoked MaryJ is it really a surprise? Relaxation in fights has proven a key ingrediant for Diaz fighting style and also chilled out long lasting gas tank instead of all the worry and over flexation of muscular tension that causes other fighters to gas. So yes, I am saying Weed can indeed be performance enhancing, and Yes, just like Steroids and Cybernetic implants should be allowed

It's truly sad and disgraceful that it's still illegal and that people are stupid enough to think it would give an athlete any kind of 'enhanced performance'. Please.

Being suspended for marijuana use is like being suspended for alcohol use.We all know majijuana doesn't make you better and 90% of the fighters take some crazy stuff to be more performant.This guy doesn't deserve to be suspended and Diaz should get his W back against Gomi.Marijuana didn't make him do the Gogoplate .Hypocritical BS !
