UFC 232 Moved After Jones' USADA Test

Due to the unprecedented circumstance of moving UFC 232 from Las Vegas to Los Angeles the week of the event, which creates additional travel time for numerous fighters, the CSAC is adding an hour to the window allotted for fighters to make weight.

A trace amount of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone (DHCMT), or turinabol, was reportedly in Jones' system.

Since the CSAC was much more familiar with Jones' case since it was adjudicated in California, they felt confident in their understanding of the situation and, following Jones' acceptance to undergo further expedited drug testing, agreed to allow the fight to happen at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

Jones tested positive for turinabol in 2017 and was suspended by the UFC for 15 months.

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive Bob Bennett said Jones was allowed to withdraw his application for a fight license in Nevada after commission Chairman Anthony Marnell III said he wanted to postpone the fight until after a January hearing about Jones' recent doping tests. Jones was fined and handed an 18-month sentence from the California State Athletic Commission following the UFC stripping him of the light heavyweight title.

UFC 232 was earlier scheduled to take center stage at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson were slated to fight for the vacant light heavyweight championship belt. UFC fighters, including an outspoken Megan Anderson, mentioned that she wasn't informed of the change and UFC didn't initially make an official announcement about the move. Foster collected the data and orchestrated a surprise urine test for Jones, who passed it.

Per ESPN, the result showed the presences of a longterm M3 metabolite, the same thing Jones tested positive for prior to his UFC 214 fight against Daniel Cormier.
