Following an arbitration panel’s decision to suspend Jon Jones for one year, as part of his USADA flag from this past summer, it looks like the Nevada Commission has agreed to the same sanction.

Recently it was announced that the panel had suspended Jones for one year, as a result of testing positive for s clomiphene and Letrozol. Jones’ camp demonstrated that a sexual enhancement pill he had taken was contaminated with the banned substances.

According to a new report from MMA Fighting, multiple sources have told the outlet that Jones has reached an agreement with the Nevada Commission, who are going to hand him the same length of suspension. The Nevada Commission could have handed Jones a different suspension than the arbitration panel, which was part of the USADA hearing. As a result of the agreement, Jones will not have to attend an upcoming hearing that was scheduled with the Nevada Commission.

Jones will be eligible to fight again next July.
