UFC fighter Jon Jones has been stripped by UFC of his light heavyweight title after the results of his 'B' sample were announced.
A spokesperson for the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced that the 'B' sample of Jones has confirmed findings of the 'A' sample. Last month, USADA announced Jon Jones had tested positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid, with the urine test that he failed taking place a day before his fight with Daniel Cormier on July 28. This marks the second time when Jones has been stripped of his title and possibly means the end of his career as an elite fighter. Jones had his light heavyweight title taken off him in 2015 after he was involved in a hit-and-run accident.
In 2016, Jones was banned by USADA for one year after he tested positive for a banned substance that Jones said was a sexual enhancement pill.
Jones is now likely to face a doping ban of four years. British UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping however recommended that Jones should be banned for life after one too many strikes. Bisping remarked there is no place for anyone in the MMA promotion with a history of taking performance enhancing drugs. The British UFC middleweight champion also remarked MMA is not for everybody and is a vicious sport. Bisping also said we are not trying to put a ball in a basket and also commented that you can dress it up however you want, but we are trying to beat our opponents into submission or knock them out.
Bisping also said performance enhancing drugs have no place in this sport. The British UFC middleweight champion further remarked he thinks it is fair to say that Jon Jones has definitely tarnished his legacy as he thinks he will always be remembered from the stunning performances he had put on but Jones made some very bad decisions outside of the Octagon and unfortunately this is one that is not going away for a long time.
UFC boss Dana White was visible shaken when news of the failed A sample broke. White regards the disgraced UFC fighter as best to step into the Octagon. Jones has received multiple chances from White to prove himself worthy of such high praise. Now, the UFC boss admits it looked like his brightest star was burnt out. Few days back, White remarked positive doping tests never come at a good time, and they are always bad, especially when it is with someone like Jon Jones.
White had also remarked Jon Jones is the best ever and the best to ever do it and that makes it even more unfortunate. The UFC head said a 2-3 years' ban could mean the end of Jones' career and added you talk about his legacy but it could probably be the end of his career. White added Jon and he had been mad at each other since UFC 200 but the reality is we have been there for this kid every step of the way. White added he flew many times to the training base of Jones when he got in trouble and added it is sad that the list goes on and on for what we have done.
