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.

Colts waive RB Matt Jones less than a week after picking him up

  Colts waive RB Matt Jones less than a week after picking him up The Colts now have only three running backs on their roster.The Colts announced Saturday they have waived Jones, six days after picking him up off waivers from Washington. Indianapolis needed the roster spot to elevate offensive guard Adam Redmond from their practice squad, but is now dangerously thin in the backfield.

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.

Norwich linked with Jordan Jones .
Norwich City and Fulham are preparing to go head to head as they look to land Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones, according to reports. The 22-year-old has been impressive for the Scottish side, and has attracted interest from a plethora of English clubs following a positive spell of form at Kilmarnock. Jones joined Lee McCulloch’s side last year from Norwich’s fellow Championship contenders Middlesbrough, and his performances since the move have caught the eye of many. Although his time at Boro wasn’t particularly successful, it’s claimed in the printed edition of the Scottish Daily Mail, as cited by Football League World, that the Canaries and Fulham want to land the winger. Jones was a full international for Northern Ireland’s Under-19 side despite having been born in England, and the tricky wide man could look to make his mark on the English game following an already-promising spell at Rugby Park. The report states that Norwich and Fulham are weighing up a January move for Jones.
