UFC champion Jones ‘fails drugs test’

He’s one of the UFC’s most recognisable and popular faces, but Jon Jones is now facing an uncertain MMA future. On Tuesday evening, the UFC released a statement relating to a “potential Anti-Doping Policy violation” by the fighter.

The sample was collected after the American’s weigh-in on 28 July, a day before he defeated Daniel Cormier for the light-heavyweight belt in Anaheim, California at UFC 214.

Following the announcement, UFC president Dana White was on hand to answer the media’s questions.

A visibly downbeat White stated “It’s brutal. It’s unbelievable.”
