The drug Jon Jones took to fail his UFC test may have been revealed

Published 2 Comments

Jon Jones put himself in every single fight fans' bad books last month when he failed two USADA drug tests.

The UFC interim light heavyweight champion was set for a main event clash with Daniel Cormier, the highlight of the UFC 200 mega-card, that should have been one of the biggest PPV's in recent UFC memory.

Instead, Jones was pulled from the fight and Cormier instead faced Anderson Silva in a nothing match that he won easily, while Bones stares down the barrel of a two-year ban. And we might finally know what for.

The commonly held belief, peddled around by pretty much everyone in UFC circles, was that Jones was popped for having an estrogen blocker in his system, which is a banned substance under USADA regulations and was assumedly taken when Jones was going through a testosterone cycle. 

However, that may not be the case, according to the UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.

According to Bisping, Jones was taking Cialis - which is used to help men with erection problems - and that caused him to test positive.

Speaking earlier this week, Dana White seemed to suggest that Jones' pending suspension could be lifted, as it came about that he didn't know he was taking the estrogen blocker.

“It’s coming back now that it looks like that he did not take the supplement that everybody thought he took, and we will see how this thing plays out,” White said on The Jim Rome Show.

If it was in the Cialis, then that would make sense and Jones vs Cormier could well be happening again before the end of the year.
