The fate of Jon Jones, or at least his license to fight Anthony Smith at UFC 235 in Nevada, will be determined today at a hearing before the Nevada Athletic Commission. Watch it live here at Bloody Elbow at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT.
Also the Commission’s already agreed-upon settlements with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor will be announced. The two fighters are looking to resolve the fallout from their post-fight brawl at UFC 229 in October.
The NAC’s settlement agreements with Abubakar Nurmagomedov and Zubaira Tukhugov will also be announced.
Jones will presumably have to deal with his repeated positive test results for trace amounts of Turinabol metabolites. The NAC refused to license him to fight in Las Vegas at UFC 232 in December which forced the promotion to move the event to California at the last minute. If he does get licensed, he will compete against Anthony Smith at UFC 235 in Las Vegas.
