Report: Jon Jones Tests Positive for Steroids

Jon Jones has reportedly tested positive for steroids – and could be stripped of the UFC Light Heavyweight title.

UFC announced yesterday that Jones was informed by the USADA of a potential anti-doping violation, following a test on an in-competition sample taken on July 28. Nothing more was said as it pertains to specifics of the violation, however TMZ are now claiming that the drug in question was Turinabol – an anabolic steroid.

The standard disciplinary process will now commence, and could well see Jones stripped of the title he won from Daniel Cormier at UFC 214. That bout would be deemed a no-contest and title returned to the Cormier.

Jones was previously banned for one year following a failed drugs test in 2016. Depending on the outcome of this latest violation, he could be hit with a four year ban, which would end hopes from the Jones camp of a multi-million dollar fight with Brock Lesnar.

A statement from a representative for Jones reads;

“We are all at a complete loss for words right now. Jon, his trainers, his nutritionists and his entire camp have worked tirelessly and meticulously the past 12 months to avoid this exact situation. We are having the samples tested again to determine the validity or source of contamination. Jon is crush by this news and we are doing whatever we can as a team to support him.”

UFC have not yet commented on the TMZ story.
