RIO DE JANEIRO – There is no debating that Jon Jones is one of the most talented fighters in MMA history. Issues with drug testing, though, have often brought up the question: What does it mean for his legacy? Jones has discussed this a few times. In an interview with Brazil’s Combate  after an atypical test finding that prompted his UFC 232 fight – and the rest of the card – to be moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, the UFC’s 205-pound champion said that he’d gotten used to the idea that his legacy would carry “asterisks.” But there are those  who don’t feel that way. Speaking this week to reporters during a media day to promote his upcoming UFC 237 meeting with Jared Cannonier, former middleweight champion Anderson Silva was asked to weigh in as someone who himself, has dealt with similar situations in his career. Silva defended both of their legacies.
