Former UFC champ Jon Jones finally had his future unveiled today when it was announced he’d agreed to a 15-month suspension with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) after going through arbitration.
Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC) failed a drug test around the time of his UFC 214 bout with Daniel Cormier in July 2017. It was his second incident involving a doping violation, but “Bones” managed to find a way to get less time than many expected and is cleared to fight Oct. 28, which is just days before UFC 230 in New York City on Nov. 3.
The timing of the announcement caused much speculation within the MMA community about Jones’ situation. Check below for the top Twitter reactions to his suspension announcement.
