Jon Jones can breathe a little easier now. ESPN’s Brett Okamoto was first to report that the California State Athletic Commission’s tests from the night of UFC 232 on Dec. 29 came back with no abnormal results for Jones.

UFC 232 was moved to California the week of the show after the Nevada Commission were not comfortable licensing Jones after test results showed the drug turinabol still in Jones’ system after failing for the same drug in July 2017.

One condition to have Jones licensed in California was for Jones to enroll in VADA testing in addition to the typical state testing. The results of the VADA testing are still pending.


Jones won a third-round TKO over Alexander Gustafsson in the main event of UFC 232, regaining his light heavyweight championship in the process.
