Report: CSAC Orders Jon Jones To Serve Three Months Of Community Service


Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones was recently handed an eighteen month suspension by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after a failed drug test in line with UFC 214.

Jones is going to be able to fight again by the end of the year, as the USADA issued suspension is retroactive and Jones can compete again starting after October 28.

However, more punishment has come Jones way and this one is coming from the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).

CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster has told MMA Junkie that in addition to the punishment Jones got from USADA, now an additional punishment of three months worth of community service has been given to the UFC star.

This is the second punishment Jones has been given by the CSAC for the failed drug test, as they had previously revoked his fighters license and awarded the fighter a $205,000 fine.

There is no time frame yet as to when Jones must complete the community service sentence by or what kind of punishments the fighter could be facing if the sentence isn’t served to its fullest. Jones hasn’t been seen in the Octagon since the bout against Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 and its unknown when the fighter is going to be returning to the Octagon.
