"There's been no violation of the anti-doping program".

Nunes made approximately $200,000 for her UFC 207 win over Ronda Rousey and will likely make much more to compete in the first-ever women's super fight in UFC history.

That left his light-heavyweight title fight against Alexander Gustafsson in limbo, until the UFC took the shock decision to move the UFC 232 card to California; with the California State Athletic Commission saying that it would allow the bout to proceed.

A December 9 test by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which administers the UFC's Anti-Doping Policy, found that a residual amount of the same substance for which he had just been cleared, turinabol. USADA does not consider that a positive test, because it's been ruled to have been a result of the original failed test in 2017, but apparently the process following such a flagged test to get a license from the NSAC won't be able to be completed in time for the fight. "It was remaining effects from the July 2017 positive test - for which he was already sanctioned", Jeff Novitzky, UFC's vice president of athlete health and performance, told ESPN.

And after "consulting with leading scientific experts", they came to the conclusion that the prohibited agent was "consistent with residual amount" of the steroid found in his final UFC 214 pre-fight drug test, for which he received a retroactive 15-month suspension.


The UFC's decision to switch UFC 232 card from Las Vegas to Los Angeles at just six days' notice has drawn widespread criticism from MMA fighters, who took to social media to voice their discontent.

Of course, the move is largely about keeping the event intact and mitigating the loss of money. Therefore, the promotion will move the card to Los Angeles.

And bantamweight Brian Kelleher, who is due to kick off the event in the first fight of the night at The Forum, says he wants to see some of Jones' fight purse go to him to help reimburse him for the additional travel costs incurred for the event.

Jones was stripped of his belt and suspended by California following the 2017 positive test, his second in as many years. The answer is nobody. So, I believe that Jon Jones is clean. Gustafsson has flown in from Sweden. In an appearance on "SportsCenter", White said the fight needs to proceed without further delay, according to Okamoto.
