This is the second time Jones has tested positive for using banned performance-enhancing drugs. The 30-year-old was scheduled for a bout with Cormier at UFC 200 in July 2016, but tested positive for two banned substances , clomiphene and letrozol, and was banned for one year . That failed test came just three days before the event, leading to him being pulled from the fight. According to TMZ, Jones could face up to a 4-year ban as a multiple-time offender. Testing positive for Turinabol carries up to a 2-year suspension from the USADA for first-time offenders, according to MMA Fighting.
I see where your coming from but most other fighters were cheaters too so it was nearly a level playing field. Jon is a very well rounded fighter, but i wanted to see him against heavyweights with a reach similar to his to see how he went against them. Gus gave him massive problems with a similar reach and a lot of jons strikes are based on using his reach which is smart but doesn’t necessarily mean he is the best “skilled” fighter because of his natural physique. I personally beleive jones has been cheating for years and would question if he would have won the gus fight and the first DC fight as he came strong late in the fight which im sure his juicing would have aided.
