  Jon Jones Pulled From UFC 200 For Potential Anti-Doping Violation

UFC interim light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been ruled out of his bout with incumbent champion Daniel Cormier in the main event of UFC 200 this Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Jeff Novitzky, the UFC’s vice president of athlete health and performance, remarked Jones tested positive for a banned substance in an out-of-competition sample taken on June 16 by the United States Anti-Doping Agency. Regarded as the No 1 pound-for-pound fighter in MMA, Jones has failed drug tests in two of his past three scheduled fights. Jones tested positive for apparent cocaine use before his first fight with Cormier at UFC 182 in January 2015.

In a statement, UFC said the UFC organization was notified that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Jon Jones of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on June 16, 2016. The statement further reads that USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It was further added that it important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. The UFC statement also disclosed that there is insufficient time for a full review before the scheduled bout because Jones was scheduled to compete against Daniel Cormier this coming Saturday, July 9 in Las Vegas and therefore the fight has been removed from the fight card.

The statement also reads the three-round heavyweight bout between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt as a result will become the UFC 200 main event. UFC President Diana White said the new headliner will be the previous co-main event heavyweight bout between Mark Hunt (12-10-1 MMA, 7-4-1 UFC) and former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC).

The American mixed martial artist served a suspension for much of 2015 after his involvement in a hit-and-run accident. He now faces a further two years’ ban, which would take him to the age of 30 and could go as high as four years for “aggravating circumstances.” He was just returning from a ban of one year hit and run incident and was stripped of the UFC crown by the fight organization.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest fighters of all time, Jon Jones became the youngest champion in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship when he won the title in March 2011 at the age of 23. The UFC Light Heavyweight Champion was reinstated into the UFC in October 2015 following his arrest on felony hit-and-run charges. His UFC debut came against Andre Gusmão at UFC 87 on August 9, 2008 and took a unanimous decision victory and won his next bout against veteran Stephan Bonnar at UFC 94 on January 31, 2009 to earn another unanimous decision victory. Jones then went on to defeat former IFL Light Heavyweight Champion Vladimir Matyushenko by TKO in the first round on August 1, 2010, at UFC Live: Jones vs. Matyushenko.

Stephan Bonnar And Dave Herman Fail Drug Tests

 

@Stephan Bonnar and @Dave Herman, who both competed at UFC 153 on October 13, have failed to clear post-fight drug tests.

The Ultimate Fighter’ season 1 runner-up, Bonnar, who lost to Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC 153 via TKO, tested positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone, announced his retirement from the sport after the bout.

Drostanolone or Masteron is an anabolic androgenic steroid that is a part of the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) family and commonly used in cutting cycles. Primarily used to treat breast cancer patients, it inhibits the production of estrogens by inhibiting the conversion  of testosterone to estrogen and is commonly used by amateur and professional sportsmen as it helps them gain from a more refined look to muscles. Since it is characterized by low water retention, muscle lines are more distinct and is commonly sold under the names, Masteron propionate and Masteron enanthate.

One of the most iconic names in Ultimate Fighting Championship history, Stephan Bonnar competed as a light heavyweight for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and was the runner up on season 1 of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV. Best known for having never been submitted, he trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with the legendary Carlson Gracie and has also made appearances as an analyst on the ESPN2 series MMA Live and for UFC broadcasts on the FOX television networks. This is his second positive test for anabolic steroids, the first of which followed his UFC 62 defeat to Forrest Griffin in August 2006 in a fight that is regarded by many as the most responsible for attracting casual fight fans to mixed martial arts. Bonnar tested positive for the banned substance Boldenone and was given a suspension for nine months besides a fine of $5,000. The 35-year-old Bonnar announced his retirement from mixed martial arts a little more than two weeks after the loss and finished his career with a record of 15-8. The use of Drostanolone by Bonnar is seen by many as the reason why he so quiet about his retirement from mixed martial arts and allowed Dana White to make the announcement for him.

Dave Herman, tested positive for marijuana metabolites, the same drug for which UFC welterweight Nick Diaz is presently suspended. He was submitted by Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the co-main event of UFC 153 for his third loss in a row and also failed to clear a pre-fight drug screen issued by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation back in 2011 that makes UFC 153 his second failed drug test in less than two years. Dave Herman, an American mixed martial artist who competes in the heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, made his professional mixed martial arts debut on December 31, 2006. The UFC fighter fought for a variety of promotions including Bellator Fighting Championships, Shark Fights, and World Victory Road.

Marc Ratner, the UFC vice president of regulatory affairs, said twenty-two fighters out of 24 tested negative and two fighters tested positive. Punishments for the fighters will be issued sometime next week, Ratner said.

Stephan Bonnar Hints At Retirement – Cliff Notes
 

Stephan Bonnar steroidsUltimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight @Stephan Bonnar is running out of options these days. Bonnar who was campaigning to get in front of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) cameras opposite longtime rival and original castmate Forrest Griffin has given some hints of retirement.

Bonnar was suspended for nine months by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after he tested positive for anabolic steroids after his fight against Forrest Griffin at UFC 62: Liddell vs. Sobral. The banned substance in the post-fight urine sample of Bonnar was Boldenone Metabolite, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Boldenone or Equipoise is a banned substance and anabolic steroid on the list of all the major athletic commissions and sports leagues.

The American mixed martial artist who currently competes for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) rose to fame after he took the second spot on season 1 of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV. Bonnar is well-known in the world of MMA for never being knocked out or submitted in MMA competition and earned his Taekwondo black belt at the age of sixteen.

The MMA fighter was awarded a contract to fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship after he exhibited good skills in the light-heavyweight finals, where he lost against Forrest Griffin by unanimous decision (29–28). The 2002-04 Ironheart Crown Light Heavyweight champion and Total Fight Challenge Light Heavyweight champion trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with the legendary Carlson Gracie has also trained in Muay Thai during several trips to Thailand. Fan of the rock band The Who, Stephan Bonnar uses their song “Eminence Front” as his entrance music to UFC fights. Bonnar has gone on to take part in some of the bloodiest wars in the history of mixed martial arts (MMA) since the infamous brawl night in April of 2005 with fellow Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season one contestant, Forrest Griffin.

Stephan Bonnar Hints At Retirement – Video

Born on 4th April 1977 and nicknamed “The American Psycho“, Stephan Patrick Bonnar has announced his plan to retire from MMA unless a third fight with Forrest Griffin or Quinton Jackson comes his way that is highly unlikely as Griffin will meet Chael Sonnen at UFC 155 and Jackson is scheduled to fight Glover Teixeira at UFC 153.

In 2005, the MMA fighter was part of the first class of TUF alongside other future UFC staples like Forrest Griffin, Diego Sanchez, Josh Koscheck, Kenny Florian, and Chris Leben.

In a recent interview, Bonnar said while addressing rumors of his potential retirement that retirement is not his preference, but he just has not had any offers that have been worth time. Bonnar remarked, “I fought every second of every fight I was in. I’ve never been stopped, legitimately, and I’ve only lost to champions. I’ve been hit with a ton of shots. I’ve never so much as acknowledged one of them.” The MMA fighter is present lobbying for a TUF coaching spot opposite Forrest Griffin or a match against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. With neither of his requests like to be entertained, the world may have already seen the last of Bonnar in the cage. Bonnar won his last three fights, with consecutive victories over Kyle Kingsbury, Igor Pokrajac, and Krzysztof Soszynski.
