Jon Jones Lands Supplement Deal

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones hasn’t been seen in the Octagon since failing a drug test in line with UFC 214 last year.

Even though the fighter has a sordid history with failed drug tests, it hasn’t stopped him from signing a deal with a supplement company.

GAT Supplements made the following announcement via Twitter:

 

Jones has used GAT Supplements before, as the company says nothing that Jones has used from them has contained anything that has been banned by USADA.

“Nothing Jon is using from GAT contains anything that is banned,” GAT Sport Vice President Mark Post told USA Today Sports in a July 2016 interview. “We do extensive third-party testing and we know he has been tested (with no positives for performance-enhancing drugs) several times.”

There is no word at this time as to when the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion will return to action, as he is still awaiting punishment from USADA for the aforementioned failed drug test. Although Jones has failed two drug tests before, only one has taken place during the USADA era. We'll update the story with any additional info on this post.
