I was listening to the Joe Rogan podcast and Brendan Schaub said Jones has failed 3 out of 4 USADA drug tests. That ain't no conspiracy. The only fight he didn't pop was the OSP fight. He looked terrible.

I have no faith in Jones at this point. I don't give him the GOAT title/rank anymore because of all his positive tests and lame excuses.

This story gets weirder by the day. He passed his drug test from the night of the fight but failed the test after weigh-ins. This part of the problem with USADA drug testing. I don't know if it is the "optics" but they (UFC/Jeff Nowitzki) don't do a good job of explaining how it can happen. I've seen a few fighters take that and do good PR, creating plausible deniability.

Sounding more and more like someone sabotaged his sample. I mean you pass before, you pass after, but the fail the weigh-in? That sounds like some fuckery.

USADA have since confirmed that Turinabol was the substance that Jones popped for, as well as clarifying that Turinabol only pops in urine samples, not blood samples.

USADA's statement has been added to that article in your link.

Thanks, @Poccington! That was the exact details I was looking for. Essentially, two different tests, not the same test given at two different times. That clears it up for me.

Boy, did I miss a hype memo? Didn't even know this was a fight until tonight.....

UFC 215 PPV — Nunes vs Shevchenko 2

Brazil’s Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes puts her title on the line against surging contender and familiar foe Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko. After suffering her first UFC loss to Nunes more than a year ago, the muay thai machine has surged back into contention with back-to-back wins over Holly Holm and Julianna Peña, and this time she plans on leaving the arena with the win and the belt around her waist.
