JON Jones failed a drug test at UFC 214, testing positive for steroids as he took the light-heavyweight title back from Daniel Cormier, Dana White has confirmed.

TMZ broke the news, reporting that Jones had tested positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid, after his third-round TKO victory over Cormier in Anaheim last month.

Turinabol carries a two-year suspension from USADA for first-time offenders and longer for repeat offenders – which would include Jones.

White told ESPN’s Brett Okamoto that Jones, 30, was yet to be stripped of his title, though that would appear a formality. MMAFighting.com, which confirmed Jones’ positive test with the California State Athletic Commission, reported that Jones had been provisionally suspended by the UFC.

The UFC issued a confirmation on its website, saying it had been notified by USADA.
