UFC 232 Is Being Moved From Vegas To L.A. Over Licensing Issues For Jon Jones

After Jon Jones' lengthy history of sabotaging himself, how could UFC officials decide to move an entire event from one city to another on one week's notice just to keep his main event bout intact?

On several occasions, White had to defend Jones' actions outside of the Octagon, though he also has been quick to lambast the former light-heavyweight champion for some of his past transgressions. It is the same drug that Jones was sanctioned over after testing positive in July previous year, copping a 15-month ban. The Nevada State Athletic Commission won't have adequate time to investigate the matter, UFC president Dana White told MMA Junkie's Matt Erickson and John Morgan.

"This is the same substance that was detected in Jones' positive test from July 28, 2017 and for which he received a 15-month sanction from an independent arbitrator under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy".

In a statement, USADA said that the test was consistent with a residual amount of the drug remaining in Jones' system. "This is not another positive test", said Jeff Novitzky, vice-president of athlete health and performance for UFC. California reinstated Jones' license to fight almost two weeks ago, Foster said.

That is not good at all and makes this situation all the more baffling.

We won the Champions League , I had a spectacular World Cup with Croatia, and now I have won another title with Madrid".

And bantamweight Brian Kelleher, who is due to kick off the event in the first fight of the night at The Forum, says he wants to see some of Jones' fight purse go to him to help reimburse him for the additional travel costs incurred for the event.

"Both USADA and worldwide anti-doping experts told us this was not a reingestion of a prohibited substance".

UFC president Dana White also backed Jones, despite having previously been let down by Jones with a positive test just days before the historic UFC 200 event - also in Las Vegas. Jon Jones has got his life together. "He's in fight shape, and I believe that he's been doing the right thing".

Jones twice beat Daniel Cormier at light-heavyweight, including at UFC 214 to reclaim the title. He did not test positive; he did not do anything wrong here.

"After extensive analysis of Mr Jones' prior 18 months of USADA in- and out-of-competition anti-doping drug-testing results, director Bennett, chair Marnell and Mr Jones agree that he will appear at an evidentiary hearing in January".
