Jon Jones' 'B' sample confirms failed drug test from UFC 214

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

    Multiple sources informed ESPN of the development on Tuesday. 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.

    Jones (23-1), who reclaimed his UFC title by knocking out Daniel Cormier at UFC 214, has denied knowingly taking a banned substance. His team is currently investigating how the steroid entered his system.

    It is normal for an athlete to request the results of a B sample under these circumstances. It is rare, however, that a B sample negates a positive test. Jones' investigation into the possibility of tainted supplements is most important to his defense at this time.

    The result of Jones' win against Cormier is likely to 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.

    This is the second failed drug test of Jones' career. The UFC was forced to pull him from a championship bout in July 2016, after he tested positive for multiple anti-estrogenic agents. Jones later told USADA the substances came from a contaminated sexual enhancement pill. He was suspended one year for negligence.

    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.

    Sources: Jon Jones' B sample returns positive

    Brutal. Biggest waste of talent in all of combat sports


    Do you think they will give him the full 4 years? Will he be able to claim tainted supplements?

    I think usada is 100% accurate thus far with their "a" samples, so testing the "b" sample is just a formality. If the fighters want to waste their own money on getting the "b" sample tested, they can knock themselves out with it. Does requesting the "b" sample honestly cast shadow of doubt as to whether the fighter knew they were taking peds? It doesn't for me. It just let's me know the angle they will be attempting when it comes to the commission: tainted supplement. The commission should only allow this argument to happen once per fighter, or maybe once every 5 years per fighter. They would do themselves a favor by granting slight leniency for honesty as well (perhaps reduced fine and/or reduced time suspended, whichever seems to benefit the individual more, case by case), or a slightly longer suspension/higher fine to those that don't get away with the tainted supplement excuse.

    If you were suspended for tainted supplements once, wouldn't you be paying to have all of your supplements tested for banned substances?

    Tainted dick pills. Sketchy supplement powder from GNC. I thought that kangaroo meat tasted funny. Fluoridated water. The ongoing government Chemtrail conspiracy. Plus the USADA tester interrupted my nap underneath the cage.

    Leniency for honesty would be a great start.

    remember how machida got fucked and suspended or admitting that he "might" have taken an illegal substance. Never ended up popping for anything but was suspended for being honest.

    It's completely up to the UFC and has nothing to do with the commission or any rules. They can give it back to him or have a fight for the vacant belt.

    Thats disappointing. Kinda interesting to witness his career all the way through. We are living through one of MMA's historical disappointments in this failed test/ athletes fall.

    A damn shame though.
