Monday, November 7, 2016— USADA announced today that Jon Jones should receive the maximum one-year period of ineligibility for his anti-doping policy violation. To read more about this decision you can go here. Per the release, Jones tested positive for two banned substances, clomiphene and Letrozol, in an out-of-competition drug test prior to UFC 200. The Oregon State Athletic Commission does not regulate grappling events, this is why Jones is able to compete even with his suspension.
The suspension from USADA is not going to stop Jon Jones from competing, he is expected to headline Submission Underground’s second event in a grappling match against Dan Henderson on Dec. 11 at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon. Chael Sonnen, the Submission Underground founder, announced the match-up Monday (11/07/2016) on The MMA Hour.
