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.

Third time in Jones' career he's stripped.

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
