On Tuesday, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported that Jon Jones’ B sample from his failed drug test on July 28 also tested positive for a steroid.
“Mr. Jones ‘B’ sample has confirmed the ‘A’ sample findings,” a USADA spokesperson said. “Importantly — as previously stated — due process should occur before drawing any conclusions about this matter.”
Jones has denied knowingly taking any banned substances, and his team is looking into how the steroid entered his system.
Unless he’s able to, once again, prove that he took a tainted supplement, Jones is facing a suspension of up to 4 years.
