Jon Jones Fails UFC 214 'B' Sample For Turinabol

Jon Jones Fails UFC 214 'B' Sample For Turinabol

ESPN reports that Jones' victory, which came by third-round knockout, will most likely be changed to a no-contest, but the UFC has not yet officially stripped Jones of his title. Just before their previously scheduled rematch at UFC 200 a year ago, Jones failed a pre-fight drug test as well, however, this was caught before the fight took place and he was removed from the card.

There will be no miracle stemming from the testing of Jon Jones' B sample, taken as part of his failed UFC 214 drug test. A spokesperson for the United States Anti Doping Agency said Jones has been informed.

It must be noted that "B" samples rarely ever return different results from the "A" sample.

Bauer forced to pay Rebel Wilson $4.5m
The Pitch flawless actress argued that the articles had portrayed her as a serial liar and led to her missing out on film roles. Bauer lawyer Georgina Schoff told the judge that Wilson had failed to prove the articles caused her financial losses.

The spokesperson also said due process should occur before drawing any conclusions about the matter. Jones went through the USADA process after failing a pre-fight drug test prior to UFC 200. Following the positive test, Jones" team requested that the "B' sample also be tested and those results have just been returned.

The status of Jones, 30, as the greatest fighter in mixed martial arts history has taken a serious hit following his second failed test in one year. He now faces a maximum suspension of four years.

Jones has already had multiple issues with positive drug tests. We're not trying to put a ball into a basket, we're trying to - you can dress it up however you want - we're trying to beat our opponents, either into submission or knock them out.
