The much-awaited UFC 232 has been shifted from Las Vegas from the state of Nevada to Los Angeles, California after a very abnormal finding in his drug test forced the Nevada State Athletic Commission not giving Jon Jones a license to compete for this weekend’s mega fight against Alexander Gustafsson.
However, the Nevada State Athletic Commission doesn’t have the jurisdiction in the state of Califonia, where Jones has already been granted a license. The California state athletic commission has granted him a license and the fight will take place at The Forum in Inglewood.
Jone Jones’s urine sample found traces of Turinabol in his system. This is the same drugs he got banned for when he tested positive for it last year after he won his fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 214. He was later suspended for 15-months.
The positive test also ignited an ugly social media exchange between both the fighters. Now Daniel Cormier ripped apart Jon Jones and Jeff Novitzky in an Instagram post using a statement Lance Armstrong used for describing former agent for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
After Joe Rogan posted on Instagram to promote his show in which the Jon Jones situation would be explained by Novitzky, Armstrong took direct aim at the UFC’s vice president of athlete health and performance.
“Aka ‘The Star F—er,’” Armstrong wrote of Novitzky, whom he has a history with.
“Couple of questions,” Armstrong continued. “Why the double standard for Jones and others? And let’s get right to it, what does the science and scientists say? I think I know the answer, but let’s let the star f—er speak to it.”
Daniel Cormier rips Jones and Novitzky for trying to sweep his latest failed drug test under the rug by citing Lance Armstrong.
“This guy Jon Jones is such a dirtbag cheater that even Lance Armstrong is weighing in lol. Lance is like where the fuck was Jeff when I was going through this shit lol. And boy how did Jones turn Jeff Novitzky into his old lady. This is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen. And now people sending me clips of this dude being arrogant at a press conference. That is one crazy negro! Jeff Novitsky-Jones lmao,” Cormier posted on social media.
