UFC president Dana White was Colin Cowherd's guest today on "The Herd" and claimed that Jones actually tested positive for two banned agents.
"They basically said he's out and he tested for a banned substance," White said. "Basically, for the 'B' sample to not be the same, especially when there's two different agents I think, it would be like hitting the lottery for that to come up negative."
What did Jones pop for? Not cocaine
In light of the news of Jon Jones receiving notification of a potential USADA violation, Iain Kidd clears up what drugs Jones would have been tested for.
USADA also issued a statement on Jones' test results.
"Given that Mr. Jones has spoken publicly about the issue, I can confirm that he has been notified of a potential anti-doping policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition test on June 16," Madden said in a statement. "Mr. Jones' B-sample is currently being analyzed by the independent WADA-accredited laboratory in Salt Lake City, Utah, and we have requested that the laboratory report those results to us as soon as possible. While at this time we are not going to provide any further specifics of the case, I can tell you that Mr. Jones will be provided full due process under the rules."
"I can also confirm that USADA has been in communication with the Nevada State Athletic Commission regarding Mr. Jones' potential violation and that we are working to ensure that the Commission has the necessary information to fully adjudicate this matter in accordance with its rules."
