Jon Jones Busted for Anti-Doping Violation, Off UFC 200 Card

Jon Jones Busted for Anti-Doping Violation, Off UFC 200 Card

Jon Jones strikes again.

Just a few days before he’s supposed to headline the epic UFC 200 card and reclaim his belt from Daniel Cormier, the greatest fighter (and greatest f*ck-up) has been busted by the USADA for an anti-doping violation.

Here’s the UFC’s statement:

The UFC organization was notified tonight that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Jon Jones of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 16, 2016.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.

However, because Jones was scheduled to compete against Daniel Cormier this coming Saturday, July 9 in Las Vegas, there is insufficient time for a full review before the scheduled bout and therefore the fight has been removed from the fight card. As a result, the three-round heavyweight bout between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt will become the UFC 200 main event.

Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.

Anyone still a fan of this guy?
