Jon Jones’ “B” sample from his UFC 214 urine test has come back positive for steroids. The result matches that of the “A” sample test. UFC Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky confirmed the results to MMAjunkie. The sample came back positive for turinabol metabolites, the same steroid found in the pre-fight test.

Jones faces a ban of up to four years because of the failed tests and could end up being stripped of his title. He will likely go to arbitration with the USADA, which the site reports could take between three to six months.

Jones defeated Daniel Cormier at the fight to win the UFC light heavyweight title. Jones’ reps have said he was innocent of any intentional doping.
