Jon Jones reclaimed his UFC light heavyweight title by beating Alexander Gustafsson in the third round at UFC 232 in Los Angeles on 29th December. The fight took place at the home of the Lakers, i.e The Forum.

However, days before UFC 232, the entire event was shifted from Las Vegas to Los Angeles after a very abnormal finding in Jones’s drug test forced the Nevada State Athletic Commission not giving Jones a license to fight in the state of Nevada.

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 back in 2017 after he won his fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.

However, according to Andy Foster of California State Athletic Commission,  Jon Jones came clean on the night of UFC 232 after being tested by United States Anti-doping agency. Both tests were negative for the M3 metabolite, which was found in his system earlier.

Brett Okamoto reported the news on Twitter and it didn’t take long before Jon Jones responded to this news.

Absolutely no jet fuel found,” the newly minted UFC light heavyweight champ wrote on Instagram, tagging Gustafsson in the process. “Just wanted to make sure you saw this. Seemed like that was the only thing you could focus on in our last fight.

Interested to hear the excuses of my next few victims,” Jones said.

Jon Jones is all set to fight Anthony Smith at UFC 235 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
