Jon Jones appears extremely confident ahead of his upcoming arbitration hearing with the United States Anti-Doping Agency.Jones, 29, is scheduled to become the first UFC athlete to enter arbitration with USADA on Oct. 31 in Los Angeles. He is contesting USADAs sanctions related to a failed drug test earlier this year, which resulted in his removal from UFC 200 on July 9.The UFC was forced to pull Jones from the event just days before, after it was revealed he tested positive for the banned substances clomiphene and letrozole. It marked the first failed drug test of Joness outstanding mixed martial arts career.Jones immediately proclaimed his innocence and has maintained he never knowingly took a banned substance. His attorney, Howard Jacobs, has stated the failed test is the result of Jones taking a legal tainted supplement. USADA has not yet confirmed Jacobss statements.The fact this product was contaminated with the very things he tested positive for tells you all you need to know, Jacobs told ESPN on Tuesday. Youd have to be pretty cynical to say, Well, he must have just gone out and bought something that would provide a ready explanation. Thatd be a lot of guessing which product would come back contaminated with these two substances.This product was tested in open packets, sealed packets, purchased by USADA -- it came back contaminated across the board. Its pretty hard to say this is a made up story.On Monday, Jones took to social media to express his feelings on the situation.Thats right light heavyweight division, Jones wrote on Twitter. This means I got in that a-- fair and square. I heard your interviews. Steroids didnt give me the believe that I am the baddest fm on this planet. It didnt give me the heart to pull off victories in the last minutes of championship fights.Steroids will never give you a high IQ of the game. It wont increase your awareness or your timing. It wont make you more technical. It didnt give me the idea to set my mind to a goal, to follow my dreams and bust my a-- every day in the gym. I know that Ive earned every inch of my success, every match won.Earning this high place in sports gives me the confidence and courage to know that I can do the same in my life. I know that I have something extremely powerful inside of me. I have the power to achieve anything I set my mind to. Knowing this helps me not worry when times get rough, I am more than a conquerer. I have what it takes to win.Based on the substances for which he tested positive, Jones faces a maximum one-year suspension. Since his last fight was scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, Jones is also subject to disciplinary action from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The NSAC granted Jones a continuance on his hearing last month. He is expected to appear before the commission in November.Jones (22-1) is widely considered the greatest fighter in the world, but his troubled personal life has interfered with his athletic career.The UFC stripped Jones of his 205-pound championship last year, after he was arrested on a hit-and-run charge in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Although he is the first UFC athlete to arbitrate a case, he would not be the first to receive a reduced sentence based on a tainted supplement. UFC athletes Yoel Romero and Tim Means have each successfully argued failed drug tests were the result of tainted supplements and received lesser penalties. Vapormax Flyknit Ebay Ireland .

Watt was so good last season that Houston defensive co-ordinator Wade Phillips called it the "best season ever" for a defensive lineman. So what will last seasons defensive player of the year do for an encore? Easy. "Im going to be better," he said as the Texans reported for training camp Thursday. "Just watch." It will be hard to top what he did last season, just his second in the NFL. He led the league with 20 1/2 sacks, had 81 tackles, four forced fumbles and defended 16 passes. Watt spent time this off-season doing what many would find to be a mundane task. He watched video of each of his games, not once but "over and over and over again." He wanted to pinpoint things he missed and find ways he could improve. "Theres sacks I missed here and there," he said. "Theres a couple of plays in the run game I missed here and there, some balls that could have been batted that werent batted. Little things. Im always looking at the little things. You have to be your harshest critic and Im by far my harshest critic and I have by far the highest expectations out of anyone in the entire world." Speaking of critics, Watt is annoyed that many have said he wont be able to replicate the success he had in 2012. "Why not? Why not? Dont sit here and tell me what I can and cant do," Watt said. He also finds it funny when people question whether hell succeed once teams make adjustments to account for him. He said adjustments were made last year that involved everything from double and triple teams to chip blocks. "If you want to focus all your attention on me, a) its not guaranteed to work and b) you have to worry about the 10 other guys on the field with me," he said. "And Im very fortunate to have 10 great other players on the field with me. Im also not going to give up just because Ive got three or four guys on me. Im going to get that sack." Hes enjoyed the fame hes gained from his work on the field and related stories about his delight at seeing pictures of fans wearing his jersey in places as far away as Japan. He loves Houston and the support he receives evverywhere he goes, even if it is a little overwhelming at times.dddddddddddd He said his plan to go out for breakfast on Thursday morning was foiled because he "cant take two steps without" people asking for autographs or pictures. Considering the speed of his rise to stardom, the 24-year-old is very aware that it could all go away at any moment. That, he says is one of the things that drives him to improve. This year, hes excited to play with ball-hawking safety Ed Reed and about the return of linebacker Brian Cushing from knee surgery. Reed had surgery to repair a partly torn labrum on April 30 and its unclear when hell be ready to play. He wasnt available on Thursday, but Andre Johnson, who has been close with Reed since the two played together at Miami, provided an update. "He feels like hes ahead of schedule," Johnson said. "He said hes feeling fine and hell be ready to go for opening day." Watt, who earned the moniker J.J. Swatt for his knack for batting down passes, has grand plans for how Reed, a nine-time Pro Bowler, can help complement his game. "I hope were going to the end zone many, many times," Watt said. "Ed and I talk about it all the time. I want to be tipping him interceptions all the time." Watt has noticed a different focus among the team than it had at the beginning of the season and believes it is partly due to the disappointing way Houston finished the regular season. The Texans began the season 11-1 before losing three of their last four regular-season games, which cost them bye week and home-field advantage in playoffs. "We definitely didnt play up to our potential at the end of the season last year," he said. "We just didnt finish the season strong and thats what we need to do." Houston won the AFC South title and its first-round playoff game in each of the last two seasons before losing in the divisional round. That kind of performance is unacceptable to Watt this year. "Division championships thats cool, but thats old news. First-round playoff wins -- cool -- but thats old news," he said. "We have one singular goal." ' ' '
