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.
