The UFC was forced to move UFC 232 to Los Angeles after the Nevada Athletic Commission refused to issue Jon Jones a license to fight in Las Vegas next weekend.
The reason a license wasn’t issued in Nevada is because of another questionable drug test.
According to the reports, a drug test earlier this month found trace amounts of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone in Jones’ system. Also known as turinabol, it’s the same substance he was suspended 15-months for.
Jon Jones tested for a trace amount of the same metabolite that was found in his system in 2017. USADA has ruled the test was caused by a residual amount of the substance from 2017 and will not sanction Jones, but Nevada didn't feel it could license him. California will.

There’s only so many questionable drug tests you can have before it’s obvious you’re cheating. I’d say Jones has exceeded that amount. He can’t stop defeating himself.
