USADA recently sent shockwaves throughout the MMA world when Jon Jones was flagged for turinabol use. Jones initially recaptured the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight title from Daniel Cormier back in July. His win has since been overturned and Cormier is once again recognized as the light heavyweight champion.
