UFC 235 8 burning questions around Jones-Smith Woodley Usman title fights

UFC 235 8 burning questions around Jones-Smith Woodley Usman title fights

In December, UFC moved a whole card from Las Vegas to Los Angeles at five days' notice after he tested positive for a tiny amount of the same metabolite and the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) said it did not have time to investigate.

Jones will make his first official title defense since 2015 on Saturday night when he faces Anthony Smith in UFC 235's main event.

Jon Jones reacts to today's drug-testing news. I've never avoided a test and I just feel like the more accessible I am, the more data they will have and the more everybody will understand.

Watch Jones comment on his UFC 235 drug test results in its entirety below.

The commission believes the two positive tests conducted February 14 and 15 uncovered residual results from the drug intake that resulted in a 15-month suspension for Jones in 2017.

"I think they're coming to the conclusion that these drug testing agencies are too powerful and they're detecting things that don't help athletes at all and therefore they're allowing athletes to continue to compete", Jones said.

'I know that I'm nearly a leader in this whole development and I'm comfortable in this space.

"I wish fans would not just look at the headlines and actually clicked on the links and read and learned what was reall going on".

The UFC's return to Las Vegas is set for Saturday with UFC 235, and the promotion's popular "Embedded" series returns to get you ready. Friday morning weigh-ins bring out all the fighters, including champions Tyron Woodley and Jon Jones.

Woodley, looking to defend his UFC welterweight title for the fifth consecutive time, hit his mark at 170 pounds.

Seeing the two square off in the octagon was long a dream for fight fans, but there's no lingering animosity between the two. "If I reached out to train with Georges, I don't see him having a problem. I am not going to let it bend me or break me".
