Jon Jones’ B Sample Also Tests Positive for Banned Substance

The United States Anti-Doping Agency has confirmed that a second sample taken from Jon Jones on June 16th 2016 has also come back positive for a banned substance.

Ryan Madden, spokesman for the USADA, confirmed the news earlier today, stating “The B sample that was requested has confirmed the findings of the A sample.”

On Wednesday, Jones was removed from his scheduled light heavyweight championship unification bout against Daniel Cormier.  Jones exercised his right to have a backup sample taken at the same time as the original also tested for the same substance found.

At this time, it is unknown what that substance is.

If the substance is identified as performance-enhancing, he could face a two-year suspension.

“They found something in one of my samples,” Jones said during a press conference Thursday. “I don’t even know how to pronounce it. I’ve been taking the same supplements the majority of my career. I’ve been so outspoken about being against any type of performance enhancers. To this day, I’m extremely against performance enhancers.

“The whole thing sucks. Being labeled as someone who would cheat hurts more than anything else I’ve ever been through in my career.”
