Earlier this week news broke that UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones had been fined $25,000 for a code of conduct violation stemming from his failed drug test for the primary metabolite in cocaine, Benzoylecgonine.

The UFC released a statement regarding the fine, saying:

“The UFC announced today that it has fined light heavyweight champion Jon Jones $25,000 for violating the organization’s Athlete Code of Conduct policy. Jones tested positive for cocaine during an out-of-competition drug test conducted by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Dec. 4, 2014. The $25,000 will be donated to a substance abuse prevention program.
The UFC came to this decision after reviewing the facts surrounding the issue, and after receiving confirmation from the Nevada Athletic Commission that Jones passed all required drug tests following his bout at UFC 182 on Jan. 3.”

Tonight, Fox Sports 1 will air Jon Jones first interview since the failed drug test at 8 p.m. PT (11 p.m. ET).
