UFC’s Jon Jones Tests Positive For Steroids
Jon Jones has racked up yet another L. The famed UFC fighter and champion tested positive for steroids shortly after beating Daniel Cormier in UFC 214.
Our sources tell us … Jones tested positive for Turinabol — an anabolic steroid.
Jones won the July 29 fight — taking the UFC light heavyweight belt from Cormier with a savage head kick followed by a barrage of punishing punches to Cormier’s head.
Jones will now go through the disciplinary process and his title could be stripped, which would make the fight a “no contest” and the title would go back to Cormier.
It’s the second time Jones has failed a USADA drug test. He tested positive for banned substances in 2016 before UFC 200 and was pulled from the main event. Jones got socked with a 1 year ban.
We’re told this time around, he could be banned for up to 4 years.
That’s it, that’s all?
Jones’ camp is saying they are at a loss as to how this happened. Someone get his (alleged) drug dealer (he tested positive for cocaine and went to rehab in 2015) on the phone.
The struggle is real.
