Jon Jones reacts to UFC 232 drug test results

Jon Jones UFC 235


Recently TMZ Sports reported that Jon Jones will defend his light heavyweight title against Anthony Smith at UFC 235 on March 2nd.

The bout is expected to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, but ‘Bones’ will have to apply for a license from the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) before being given clearance to fight.

This according to UFC president Dana White, who spoke to TMZ Sports on Saturday.

“Later this month, Jon Jones will file an application for licensure with the NSAC in order to compete at UFC 235 in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 2nd.”

”Provided that license is granted, Jones will be defending his Light Heavyweight title against Anthony Smith in a 5 round main event at the T-Mobile Arena.”

As we reported earlier, Jones still needs to appear before the NSAC to address an adverse drug-test finding that prompted the move of UFC 232 from Nevada to California.

A Dec. 9 test revealed low levels of a long-term metabolite of oral turinabol, the same steroid found in Jones’ system after an in-competition drug test for his fight against Daniel Cormier in July 2017.

The latest update is ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported that Jon Jones passed all of the drug tests administered on the night of his UFC 232 victory over Alexander Gustafsson.

“Jon Jones was drug tested by USADA and the California State Athletic Commission on the night of UFC 232 on Dec. 29 and all tests have come back clean,” Okamoto reported. “No picograms of the M3 metabolite, which was the source of all the controversy and drama last month, were found.”

After a few moments, Jones made sure that Gustafsson and the rest of the light heavyweight contenders get the message loud and clear.

“Finished my so-called kryptonite before the championship rounds. Absolutely no jet fuel was found on the murder scene @alexthemauler just wanted to make sure you saw this. Seemed like that was the only thing you could focus on in our last fight. Interested to hear the excuses of my next few victims. Only 51 more days to go, will you be a witness? #UFC235 #AndStill”
