The Nevada Athletic Commission has set things in motion on dealing with Jon Jones and his potential Anti-Doping Policy violation.

MMA journalist Shaheen Al-Shatti tweeted on Wednesday, “The Nevada Athletic Commission will hold a ‘hearing on extension of temporary suspension’ for Jon Jones at its Mon. July 18 meeting.”

Jones faces a possible two-year suspension from fighting with his failed drug test from an out-of-competition sample collection done by USADA on June 16.

Jones’ B-sample also came back and tested positive for banned substances.

USADA, the UFC and Jones’ have not unveiled what substances Jones popped for. However, Chael Sonnen and Rashad Evans have claimed that the banned substances that showed up in Jones’ tests were estrogen blockers.
