Despite the fact that the fighter is still under provincial suspension from USADA, the former light heavyweight champion is still in the USADA testing pool.
USADA still testing Jon Jones, as case pends. Records show he was tested 4th quarter of 2017. I'm told it was 10/11, results were clean.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) October 24, 2017
Jones may still be in the testing pool because his official punishment has yet to be announced by USADA and just in case there is no punishment, then the fighter would have been continuously tested all along.
According to the USADA website, the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion has been tested a total of 18 times since USADA partnered with the UFC.
The former light heavyweight champion could be facing a suspension of up to four years from USADA since this is his second drug test failure.
