However, the California State Athletic Commission will approve a license for Jones to meet Alexander Gustafsson for the light heavyweight title on December 29.

USADA officials then stated that due to the minuscule amount of Turinabol in his system that Jones' test could have only been caused by a residual effect from the original introduction of the drug into his body previous year.

That could be because they'll be trying to make a Jones-Cormier rematch a reality - even though neither fighter has indicated they're interested in trying that matchup again - before Cormier retires or what, but they want this fight to happen on the December 29 card and will make that happen by moving the entire card to L.A.

Conor McGregor's training partner and Bellator fighter Dillon Danis, who was infamously involved in the recent UFC 229 brawl in Las Vegas, labelled Jones "A juice head". So the UFC made the unprecedented decision to move the event from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

The USADA has explained to the Nevada State Athletic Commission that Jones should be cleared to fight but according to Dana White, there simply isn't enough time to get Jones reinstated in Nevada.

Midfielder Marcos Llorente also scored from outside the area for Madrid's second goal to help the European champions claim a record-extending seventh world title.

"As a result of these findings, USADA has determined that Mr Jones is not facing a violation per the UFC Anti-Doping Policy". Sports also noted that the amount of Turinabol found in Jones' system was "the size of one-50 millionth of a grain of sand".

Although there's a lot of skepticism surrounding Jones" latest doping incident, White is adamant he's "innocent' of any wrongdoing.

Daniel Cormier who has a history with Jones responded to this matter after it was revealed. I have willingly submitted to every USADA test in the lead up to this fight and USADA has confirmed what I've been saying all along, that I'm a clean athlete.

"I sincerely thank the California State Athletic Commission and Andy Foster for doing the right thing and supporting me through this process".

Jones' last saw action in July 2017 in a bout that saw him knock out current heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 214. UFC 232, originally scheduled to take place at T-Mobile Arena this coming Saturday, will now be at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
