Jones (23-1 MMA, 17-1 UFC) faces up to a four-year ban for his second doping violation and could be stripped of his title, according to UFC President Dana White.

B sample confirms Jon Jones' positive steroid test

  B sample confirms Jon Jones' positive steroid test Where to now?

UFC fighter Jon Jones ' B sample reportedly tested positive for a banned substance. Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reported the news Tuesday, noting UFC star Jon Jones reportedly tested positive for Turinabol , an anabolic steroid , prior to his UFC 214 win over Daniel Cormier, according to TMZ Sports.

Jones , the current UFC light heavyweight champion, tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs for a second straight year, it came out last mo MMA Junkie : Jon Jones ' B sample from UFC 214 also positive for steroid turinabol .

The potentially long penalty factors in Jones' first USADA doping violation, which resulted in his scratch from a title unifier with Cormier (19-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC) at UFC 200. An arbitrator found Jones negligent at the upper level of fault for taking an over-the-counter sexual enhancement pill - later found to be tainted with two banned estrogen-blockers - and suspended him one year, though it stopped short of calling him a cheater.

Jones' positive test at UFC 214 came from a urine sample taken after the official weigh-ins for the event on July 28. In an interesting twist, Jones passed out-of-competition tests on July 6 and July 7 and also passed a blood test conducted on fight night, though USADA cautioned it was too early to draw conclusions because turinabol is only found via urine tests.

Even with the lack of certainty, Jones' second USADA positive was devastating for his comeback. The theme surrounding the pound-for-pound great's rematch with Cormier was redemption, with the promotion highlighting his out-of-cage troubles with USADA and the law. In the lead-up to the fight, Jones took exception to Cormier's accusations that he knowingly cheated. Jones answered critics who questioned his ability to bounce back with a thunderous knockout of Cormier in the third round via head kick.

Before news of the failed UFC 214 broke, Jones was trying to queue up a fight with ex-heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar, while the promotion was working on a fight with current champ Stipe Miocic for UFC 218.

Beyonce's lawyers argue Formation sample was 'justified' .
Beyonce's lawyers have responded to a $20 million (£14.8 million) copyright lawsuit over her Formation video, insisting her sample was "reasonable and justified". The 2016 hit features spoken word segments from the work of the late social media celebrity Messy Mya, real name Anthony Barre. Officials for the funnyman's estate, led by his sister Angel Barre, filed legal papers in February (17), demanding royalties, damages, and a credit for her brother as a writer, composer, producer, and artist on the track. In the promo, the late Barre can be heard saying, "What happened at the New Orleans (sic)", and, "B**ch, I'm back by popular demand", and his sister claims the samples infringe upon the rights of two of her brother's comedy works. His voice does not feature in the audio version of the Lemonade album track. In July (17), Beyonce tried and failed to have the lawsuit dismissed, and now her legal representatives are arguing it was "reasonable" to use Barre's voice because the feature was only a few seconds in length and doesn't require compensation, according to TMZ. They also argue the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment, which guarantees free speech, pertains to the case. Formation, the lead single from Lemonade, was a huge hit for the 36-year-old superstar, and she even performed the track during last year's (16) Super Bowl half-time show. Messy Mya, who was also an aspiring rapper, died in 2010 at the age of just 22, after he was shot multiple times in New Orleans, Louisiana.
