Jon Jones' B sample confirms failed drug test

No surprise at all ... The guy is a scumbag cheat



The B sample of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones's failed drug test from July 28 in Anaheim has confirmed the presence of a banned substance.

Last month, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) informed Jones he'd tested positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid, on July 28. Jones has been notified of the B sample's confirmation, per sources.

The result of Jones's win against Cormier will likely be changed to a no-contest, although the California State Athletic Commission has not yet made that change. The UFC did not immediately strip Jones of his title and has not commented on the status of the division.

Per the UFC's anti-doping program, Jones faces a maximum suspension of four years for a second offense. Technically, he potentially faces sanctions from two different bodies: CSAC and USADA. It's possible, however, USADA will simply mirror CSAC's ruling. Jones reserves the right to appeal under both agencies.

Hopefully the last time....and I hope Cormier sues him for his portion of the purse for having to take punishement for someone who cheated

The California State Athletic Commission handed down a $205,000 fine to Jones today, who still faces further sanction from the United States Anti-doping Agency.


The commission also revoked Jones’ license for a year, which will require him to come before the commission to be licensed to fight again in California. The commission elected not to suspend Jones, likely in part because USADA will be handing down their own suspension which will also be entered into the Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC) database.


Jones’ defense rested on a report by Dr. Paul Scott of Korva Labs, but Dr. Scott’s testimony was picked apart by opposing counsel, as his report—which found Jones’ use of Turinabol was likely unintentional—was based on numerous assumptions. One of the assumptions was how Turinabol would be used by someone looking to enhance their performance. Dr Scott appeared to indicate that he got his information about this from a bodybuilding website sent to him by Jones’ attorney Howard Jacobs. Dr. Scott was ultimately forced to concede that there was a great deal of uncertainty around his conclusions.

Panel member Martha Shen-Urquidez also laid into Jones, pointing out that he lied on declarations several times, both before and after his first failed USADA test in 2016. Shen-Urquidez pointed out that Jones listed only seven supplements on his doping control form, where he is required to list every supplement and medication he has taken. Jones subsequently sent 17 supplements to be checked for Turinabol, indicating he had taken 10 supplements he did not list on the form. According to Shen-Urquidez, Jones also neglected to list supplements on previous forms as well.

Jones still faces further sanction from the United States Anti-doping Agency (USADA) over the same failed drug test. Jones is looking at a suspension of up to four years from USADA under the UFC’s own anti-doping policy due to his previous positive drug test for clomiphene and letrozole metabolites.

If USADA decides there are aggravating factors in Jones’ case, he could potentially face six years. USADA have only invoked this clause once under the UFC program, when Francisco Rivera forged bank statements and other evidence.

He can reapply in August 2018, but again, CSAC won’t accept an application until his USADA hearing is complete and he serves whatever punishment USADA gives him. That could very well go past Aug. 2018.

Unclear what USADA will give him at this time.

2 biggest takeaways from Jones hearing is that ...

1. He has little to no hope for USADA leniency
2. He (unwittingly) threw his management under the bus for signature forgery and the CSAC may not take too kindly to this


Jones says he did not take the USADA tutorials and that his management did them on his behalf back in 2015. Commissioner asked if Jones’ management “forged” his signature and he said “yes."
