In the late hours of Tuesday 22 August it was announced Jones had tested positive for a banned substance….. Yet again!
His team have come out and defended Jones saying he has being stitched up, but his team should of had control of this checking and mentoring everything Jones was taking.
He regained his title beating Daniel Cormier in July, but all that now means nothing. Having stated in the build up “this is a new me” but now it seems it was just the old Jones in disguise.
The UFC can't afford to trust Jones again, failed test after test, drink driving and the list goes on.
Fans will never get behind him again, this leaves the UFC in a dire situation. With Rousey looking like nothing but a memory, McGregor is off Boxing and now Jones let everyone one down again the three fighters who made the bank balance roll up are gone.
Jon Jones you absolutely suck. A talented fighter who just had the wrong attitude and has disgraced the sport of MMA.
Below is the USADA statement
The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Jon Jones of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an in-competition sample collected following his weigh-in on July 28, 2017.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Jones, as it relates to the UFC Anti-Doping Policy and future UFC participation. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.
The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) also retains jurisdiction over this matter as the sample collection was performed the day before Jones’ bout at UFC 214 in Anaheim, CA, and USADA will work to ensure that the CSAC has the necessary information to determine its proper judgment of Jones’ potential anti-doping violation.
Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
