Dana White Confirms Jon Jones Failed Drug Test At UFC 214

on

When Jon Jones defeated Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 for the Light Heavyweight Championship, he almost immediately called out Brock Lesnar for a fight.

Although Jones is arguably the best pound for pound MMA fighter today, unfortunately it is not from a fully natural disposition.

According to TMZ, Jones has been suspended from UFC once again for a drug policy violation. He was contacted with Turinabol, which is an anabolic steroid, and illegal to use according to the Ultimate Fighting Championship standards. As a result, Jones is forced to strip the Light Heavyweight Championship. This shifts the match result to a no contest, which returns the title back to Cormier.

Jones returned at UFC 214 after being banned from the UFC for a year, also for a policy violation. According to MMA Fighting, Jones stated that the substance he was banned for was a tainted sexual performance pill, and that the USADA confirmed that it was tainted. Despite his attempt to explain his actions, he was still hit with a one-year suspension.

ESPN posted following on Twitter:

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross stated in a recent blog that there is word of Jones having some interest in coming to the WWE in some capacity. With the news of his policy violation and suspension, this debut could happen sooner than later.
