UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones' failed drugs test from UFC 214 has been confirmed by a positive B sample, according to the US Anti-Doping Agency.


In August, USADA confirmed that Jones had tested positive for an anabolic steroid called Turinabol, just one day before he defeated Daniel Cormier in Anaheim to reclaim the UFC’s light-heavyweight title. Jones has denied knowingly taking the banned substance, and requested the test of his B sample, but this has now confirmed presence of Turinabol. His team are investigating how the steroids could have entered his system.



The result of Jones' win at UFC 214 is likely to be changed to a no-contest by the California State Athletic Commission but the UFC is still to strip Jones of his title and yet to comment on who holds what in the 205lb division.

Jones is considered to be one of the UFC’s greatest ever fighters but this is the second time he has failed a drug test.

In July 2016, the UFC pulled him from a championship bout at UFC 200 after he tested positive for multiple anti-estrogenic agents. Jones later claimed the failed test was the result of taking a contaminated sex pill. He was suspended for one year for negligence.

Jones has the right to appeal against this latest failed test, but with this being a second offence he could now face another suspension of up to four years.
