Jon Bones Jones former UFC champion is one of the fascinating characters in MMA.
Recently the UFC’s Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance Jeff Novitzky saying he believed Jon Bones Jones was innocent.
Jon Jones Stripped of the title after testing positive for banned substance anabolic steroid Turinabol, we have learned that Jones has taken and passed a lie detector test last month that suggests he did not knowingly take steroids before recapturing the UFC light-heavyweight title from rival Daniel Cormier.
“Last month, Jones took a polygraph test in hopes of proving he is telling the truth when he states he never knowingly took Turinabol, an anabolic steroid, or any other performance-enhancing substance prior to his UFC 214 fight against Daniel Cormier in Anaheim, Calif. Jones passed the test, according to UFC sources. The test was conducted by the PGP Polygraph & Interviewing Service in Albuquerque, N.M. on Dec. 7, sources say. Neither the UFC nor the United States Anti-Doping Agency asked Jones to take the test.” – via a report by MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani.
Dude the truth is I would never do steroids, I put that on my children and I put that on my Heavenly Father https://t.co/i8EEbrQU5x

The result will add some weight to allegations that Jones was an unconscious victim, though the test was not requested by, or linked to, the UFC or USADA.
Let’s say if he is proven innocent, he may still have to face a suspension due to negligence.
Jones has been provisionally suspended by the UFC and is awaiting penalty from the California State Athletic Commission and USADA. His CSAC hearing is currently scheduled for next month.
Jones and his team have constantly declared his innocence. There’s no telling just how much weight a passed polygraph test will hold when it comes to considering an official punishment for Jones.
Anyway, we wish Jones good luck and hoping to see the greatest of all time candidate back into the UFC as soon as possible.
