On Tuesday the results of Jon Jones’ B sample results were released.
The B sample tested positive for the anabolic steroid Turinabol, which was the same result as his A sample. This is Jones’ second potential Anti-Doping Policy violation as he was suspended for one year in 2016 after testing positive for the banned substances clomiphene and letrozole. Jones was flagged for his second potential Anti-Doping Policy violation from his sample taken after the UFC 214 weigh-ins.
Jones knocked out Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 and won back the UFC light heavyweight title. However, the shocking news of Jones’ second potential Anti-Doping Policy violation came nearly a month after his UFC 214 fight took place, which could result in an extensive punishment.
Jon Jones will now go through the adjudication process with USADA and will also be dealing with the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) as UFC 214 took place in Anaheim, California.
With the results of the B sample also showing Turinabol in Jones’ system, the MMA community had a mixed bag of reactions.

Really bro? I seriously don't understand this guy. So much talent, amazing athlete. I lost respect towards u JJ. I've always told my friends & fans that u are the GOAT. But I guess I was wrong, how many times can u do this bro? 'Seriously' I'm just so sad to hear this news, I'm a fan of this sport. @jonnybones I lost all my RESPECT. U might see this post or u might not, but I am Manny Gamburyan and when u see me one day plz don't hate me why I lost respect towards u. I've been with the @ufc since 2007 and I have 22 UFC fights, always made weight and win or lose always came CLEAN. #USADA #TheAnvil #NORespect
