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.
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.”
Now, Jeff Novitzky has slammed Lance Armstrong and called him the biggest fraud in sports.
“Lance Armstrong is probably one of the biggest frauds and cheats in professional sport, and he’s out there making judgements – I think he’s the least credible guy to make those judgements,” Novitzky told reporters. “These same experts that are doing these studies and putting out these facts are the ones that basically exposed him as the biggest fraud in sports.
“So in my mind, that guy has no credibility. He can say whatever he wants to say. I don’t pay him any attention.”
