Jon Jones Fails Yet Another Drug Test, UFC 232 Moved From Vegas to LA

At this point, you just have to expect them.

That’s right folks, Jon Jones – the former champ who cannot stay out of trouble – has failed a drug test prior to next weekend’s UFC 232. It’s for a minuscule, possible trace amount of steroid from his last drug test, but whateves. The point is, UFC 232 was supposed to take place in Las Vegas, but the UFC wants to keep Jones on the card (against Alexander Gustafsson). And since the Nevada State Athletic Commission is pretty much on holidays now, the UFC is packing everything up and holding the event in Los Angeles.

Oy.

Here’s MMAJunkie with the UFC’s spin:

UFC VP of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky said Jones’ positive test is not a violation. He said USADA, in consultation with other organizations, believes the test is a “pulsing” effect and not a new ingestion of the substance that he tested positive for after a UFC 214 win over Daniel Cormier in July 2017.

Novitzky described the amount of turinabol metabolites in Jones’ system in low “picogram” levels.

“A picogram is a one-trillionth of a gram,” Novitzky said. “If you put one grain of salt on the table and split it up into 50 million pieces, a picogram is one of those pieces of that gram of salt. These levels have shown up in the single and double digits of picograms – so such a small amount.”

Sure, buddy. Sure. Meanwhile, every fan who bought a ticket to see UFC 232 in Vegas is now screwed.

Also, Jon Jones sucks.

Pacquiao-Broner Official For Jan. 19 In Las Vegas

I guess those “talks” broke down.

Boxing icon Manny Pacquiao will make his return to the “sweet science” when he trades leather with former four-division world champion Adrien Broner in a WBA welterweight title fight scheduled for Sat., Jan. 19, 2019 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sorry DAZN subscribers, this one airs exclusively on Showtime pay-per-view (PPV).

”I have missed fighting in Las Vegas, it has been a second home to me,” Pacquiao said. “Returning to the MGM Grand Garden Arena to defend my world title against Adrien Broner is an exciting way to stage my homecoming. Adrien is a tough opponent with an accomplished record. But if I have learned one thing while serving in the Philippine Congress and Senate, it is problem solving.”

Pacquaio (60-7-2), who turns 40 in less than a month, was last seen knocking around Argentina’s Lucas Matthysse last July in Malaysia (watch it). The 29 year-old Broner (33-3-1, 1 NC), meanwhile, is coming off a 12-round draw opposite Jesse Vargas back in April.

“I have paid my dues in this sport, and now it’s time for me to get mine,” Broner said. “I get more views than everybody when I fight. A lot of people are going to see me pack off Pacquiao into retirement, and without his belt.”

Tickets for Pacquiao vs. Broner go on sale this Sat. (Nov. 24) and start at $ 1,500, $ 1,000, $ 750, $ 500, $ 300, $ 200, $ 100, not including applicable service charges. Boxing fans can order seats online through AXS.com, charge by phone at 866-740-7711 or in person at any MGM Resorts International box office.
