The California Statement Athletic Commission has posted the agenda for its February 27th meeting in Anaheim, and it includes a hearing for Jon Jones.

The hearing is the result of Jones’ positive test for the steroid Turinabol, following his stoppage win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 last July. The bout’s result was overturned as a result of the failed test, and Jones was stripped of the light-heavyweight title,

The 30 year-old has denied knowingly taking any type of banned substance, and recently his management team reported Jones passed a polygraph test, in regards to that claim.

Jones also tested positive for PEDs in 2016, but the fighter and his camp were able to demonstrate that a sexual enhancement performance pill he took, was contaminated with the substances. Jones was still suspended for one year, however, for negligence.

Since Jones was suspended before, however, he is facing up to a four year suspension.
