Massive Controversy As Jon Jones’ Comeback Moved From Vegas To LA

Massive Controversy As Jon Jones’ Comeback Moved From Vegas To LA

In a staggering turn of events, Jones tested positive to a miniscule amount of Turinabol earlier this month.

That's the message the top ranked light heavyweight contender conveyed late Sunday night after his fight at UFC 232 was moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles due to an adverse drug test result returned by Jones.

Jones will still be competing at UFC 232, and it seems that a potential trilogy fight with Cormier is in the cards, since this rivalry doesn't seem to be dying down any time soon.

White added: "If these guys even doubted that something bad happened here and he was wrong or whatever, the fight's off".

"USADA informed the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) on Thursday that a urine sample collected by USADA from Jon Jones in an out-of-competition test session on December 9, 2018 was reported Thursday by the WADA-accredited laboratory in Salt Lake City to contain an extremely low level of 4-chloro-18-nor-1713-hydroxymethy1,17a-methyl-5a-androst-13-en-3a-ol (M3), a metabolite of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone (DHCMT), or another chlorine-substituted anabolic steroid", the statement reads.

"And all of them, independent of us, determined that this was not a re-ingestion of the substance and this very, very small amount that was occurring and still showing up, according to these expects from around the world, did not provide any performance-enhancing benefit".

Earlier tonight news broke that former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones UFC 232 USADA drug test came out abnormal, found trace amount of the same Turinabol metabolite that "Bones" had popped in his system following a Daniel Cormier fight at UFC 214 a year ago.

However, the NEvada State Athletic Commission refused to let Jones fight after the findings.

The decision has caused controversy with the event less than a week away.

Notified of the result, Nevada officials did not feel they had adequate time to properly vet the test result in accordance with Jones' drug testing history, and thus wouldn't be able to rule on Jones' case in time for UFC 232 on Saturday.

"Everybody here and everybody I just mentioned 100 percent believes Jon Jones is innocent".

Sure, Nunes is going to get a hefty paycheck and will be fine financially, there are a lot of other fighters on the prelims that don't make a ton of money in their fights and every penny matters to them. Yet that fight was changed to a no-contest after Jones tested positive.
