Jon Jones’ VADA Test is Positive For Long-Term Steroid Metabolite That Moved UFC 232
By FCF Staff
A drug test Jon Jones was administered by VADA, in connection to UFC 232 last month, has reportedly come back positive for the same, long-term steroid metabolite that moved the card.
UFC 232 was moved from Las Vegas to Inglewood, California after a pre-fight test indicated a trace amount of a long-term Turinabol metabolite. The California Commission elected to sanction the fight since Jones had already been suspended for testing positive for the banned substance before.
MMA Fighting is reporting that the California Commission will not be pursuing any type of disciplinary action, as a result of the long-term metabolite showing up again. Other tests that Jones has taken in connection with UFC 232 did not test positive for any type of banned substance.
Jones is scheduled to fight Anthony Smith at UFC 235 on March 2nd in Las Vegas. The light-heavyweight champion does not currently have a license to compete in Nevada, and is expected to appear in front of the State’s Commission next Tuesday.
The decorated fighter has repeatedly denied that he’s ever knowingly taken a performance-enhancing-drug.
