Jon Jones notified of potential USADA violation
For the second time in 13 months, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has failed a U.S. Anti-Doping Agency drug test.
TMZ originally reported that Jones tested positive for an anabolic steroid known as Turinabol.
Shortly after the news broke, the UFC released a statement, acknowledging that Jones potentially failed an in-competition test on July 28, one day before Jones defeated Daniel Cormier to regain the UFC light heavyweight championship.
According to TMZ Jones could be suspended anywhere from 2-4 years for the violation.
Jones was previously suspended for 1 year after a failed drug test prior to UFC 200, Jones was ultimately pulled from the event, and subsequently served his suspension.
According to ESPN, Dana White has yet to determine the state of the UFC light heavyweight title.
As is customary Jones will be afforded an appeals process.
