Jon Jones and Gustafsson go back and forth on Twitter after PED fiasco

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.

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.

According to ESPN, the USADA determined Jones’s positive test this time around was because of a residual amount of the substance that lingered in Jones’s system from 2017. However, Nevada didn’t want to rush the investigation and decided against granting Jones a license.

United States Anti-doping agency notified NSAC about an extremely low amount of prohibited substance in Jones’s system from a sample taken on Dec. 9 which according to USADA is “consistent with residual amounts from his prior exposure for which he was previously sanctioned.

However, his opponent Alexander Gustafsson is not concerned if Jones is taking PEDs or not as he has promised to beat him anyways.

This seemed to infuriate Jones and he reminded Gustafsson of their first fight back in 2013 where he took his best punches without getting faded.

Who do you think wins this fight to become the new Light heavyweight champion?
