Last month, Jon Jones tested positive for a turinabol just a few weeks ahead of UFC 232 and for this, he wasn’t offered a license by Nevada State Athletic Commission to fight in Las Vegas. But then he was eventually allowed to fight at the Forum in Los Angeles.
Despite testing positive, he wasn’t suspended. This was the same drugs he got banned for when he tested positive for back in 2017 after he won his fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 214. He was later suspended for 15-months.
Andy Foster of CSAC allowed him to fight in Vegas, saying that Jones didn’t injest PED. He recently gave an interview to Fightful.com and gave full details.
“The scientists have said there was no evidence of re-administration, the evidence…when we go back and look at the testing from August until now,” Foster said of Jon Jones. “It is indisputable that there’s been no re-administration and there’s no way to prove re-administration between July and what I believe is August of 2018, so Jon Jones, like any athlete, is afforded the presumption of innocence. That doesn’t change based on who you are, he served his time…he sat out his time and scientists say…multiple scientists have said, including the expert scientist that I used when I got Jon for the metabolite in 2017, put in writing that there’s no evidence of re-administration.”
