Talk about convenient timing.
Just over two weeks into his Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) hearing on Jan. 29, UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones tested negative for performance-enhancing drugs as well. as drugs of abuse last month. UFC 232 Fight Night Examination.
This is according to an ESPN report.
Jones was tested by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) as well as by the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Soon, he will be forced to pee by the Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) as part of his deal to compete in UFC 232.
If this sounds like an exaggeration; well, it is, but those are the types of bows that one must overcome after failing a lot of drug testing and offending the mixed martial arts (MMA) fanbase (and fighter base) with so much pre-fight drama.
After defeating Alexander Gustafsson to reclaim his crown, Jones will make a quick turnaround – assuming NSAC will stamp his license – at the upcoming pay-per-view (UFC 235) pay-per-view event in Las Vegas where Anthony Smith, , will be waiting.
Along with a couple of 12-pane cups.
