NSAC Says Two Of Five Jon Jones Drug Tests Had “Adverse Findings”


UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones is defending the gold against Anthony Smith in the main event of UFC 235.

The fighter has been tested a lot leading into the event and the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has released the results of five of those tests. Those findings, which were tested at the WADA lab, says that there were “adverse findings” in two of the five samples.

Feb. 14 (Nevada State Athletic Commission) – Adverse Analytical finding. DHCMT M3 detected 40 pg/mL.

Feb. 15 (Nevada State Athletic Commission) – Adverse Analytical finding. DHCMT M3 detected 20 pg/mL.

There was another test conducted on February 23 by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), but those results haven’t been revealed at this time. Jones has still been cleared to compete at UFC 235, despite the findings in the two drug tests. 

Jones has failed a multitude of drug tests before, notably before UFC 200 and in-line with UFC 214.
