Jon Jones' 'B sample' confirms failed drug test

Jones' B sample confirms positive test for banned substance

However, it was revealed late in August that the newly crowned light heavyweight champion had failed another United States Doping Agency (USADA) drug test after testing positive for an in-competition sample.

The spokesperson went on to say that, "due process should occur before drawing any conclusions about this matter". One day later, Jones (23-1) reclaimed his UFC title by knocking out Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.

In what should be unsurprising, the California State Athletic Commission will be overturning the result of the UFC 214 main event.

Luke Bernardi, owner of Amped Nutrition, appeared on the "Holy Smokes MMA Podcast" to talk about Jones' use of the banned substance turinabol which failed a USADA test on July 28.

Tropical storm conditions are possible on the Treasure Coast throughout the day Monday with showers and possibly a thunderstorm. FEMA officials estimated that 25 percent of homes were completely destroyed , while another 65 percent suffered serious damage.

Bernardi said if Jones were to have taken turinabol, he would likely have taken a higher dosage if he used the banned substance once. Jones' bad-boy image actually appears to have made him more marketable for the UFC, which has a current dearth of pay-per-view stars.

The "B" sample confirmed the positive "A" sample findings, with Jones' future hanging in the balance.

The sample an athlete gives during a drug test is divided into two parts so that if the first sample tests positive, the second can be tested to "confirm" the first result.

The commission's decision leaves the UFC with one of its own to make. However, it's possible USADA will simply mirror CSAC's ruling.

It triggered a fresh influx of refugees to neighboring Bangladesh, which already hosted around 400,000 Rohingya. According to recent figures, Bangladesh has taken in nearly 300,000 of the displaced Rohingyas.

"We are all at a complete loss for words right now", Jones's manager Malki Kawa said in a statement to MMA Fighting. The 30-year-old's failed test stemmed from a urine sample taken after the weigh-in.

Jones would recapture the light heavyweight title with a third-round TKO victory over Cormier, which happened to be the first time "DC" was finished in his career.

Widely considered the greatest fighter of all time, Jones has endured a tumultuous three-year span.

If Jones is stripped, it remains unclear whether the title would be given back to Cormier.
