Anthony Smith isn’t concerned about Jon Jones’ drug test results ahead of their fight at UFC 235. Smith, whose fight with Jones is pending clearance by the NSAC, posted to Twitter to respond to a report that Jones’ VADA test results showed trace amounts of the M3 metabolite. In the post, Smith made it clear that no matter what’s in Jones’ system, he’s up for the fight.

The “pulsing” effect of the metabolites were revealed in a release Wednesday by the CSAC, who oversaw Jones’ fight with Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 231. The lab that processed the samples certified they weren’t performance-enhancing, and no punishment is forthcoming. They are believed to be due to the substance lingering in Jones’ system.
