Jeff Novitzky Says Tiny Amounts Of Turinabol Have Been Discovered In Jon Jones' Tests On Several Occasions Since August! Jeff Novitzky was a guest in Joe Rogan Experience episode on Thursday. He spoke about Jon Jones controversial drug test findings. UFC VP of Athlete Health and Performance discovered that tiny amounts of Turinabol have been found in Jon Jones samples on several occasions since August! Look at the list of controversial tests and results, which Jeff Novitzky shared. https:\/\/twitter.com\/shaunalshatti\/status\/1078397146745823232 Jeff Novitzky told Joe Rogan that USADA first noticed adverse findings for a long-term oral Turinabol metabolite in Jon Jones' drug tests back in August. Aug. 9: Negative Aug. 29: 8 pecograms Sept. 18: 19 pecograms Sept. 21, Oct. 2, Oct. 11, Nov. 14: All negative https:\/\/twitter.com\/dimspace\/status\/1078459844728885248 But wait, the UFC president Dana White speaks different story!!! https:\/\/twitter.com\/dimspace\/status\/1078450549643595776 Dana White talking to Alex Gustafsson earlier this week. "He has had 8 drug tests in 6 months, and they have been negative". Jeff Novitzky also took time to discuss why\u00a0NSAC ultimately denied granting Jones\u2019 fighting license. The whole fiasco led to relocating the entire UFC 232 fight card from no-tax Nevada to high-tax California.\u00a0(h\/t MMA Fighting) \u201cI think it was December 6th, sent a letter to us and they sent a letter to the Nevada state athletic commission saying, \u2018Just you\u2019re aware, over the last six months, early in this six months we\u2019ve seen a reemergence of this long-term in Jon\u2019s samples.\u2019\u201d Novitzky said on the Joe Rogan Experience. \u201cUSADA didn\u2019t need to notify them. They thought, out of an abundance of caution, let\u2019s let Nevada know that this issue exists. \u201cThat\u2019s all good, Nevada gets this. I talk with them, they\u2019re like, \u2018Whoa, this is concerning, but we don\u2019t see anything in our jurisdiction here, so I certainly hope that no subsequent tests show up positive because that could be an issue.\u2019 And sure enough, USADA collects a sample from Jon on 12\/9, they expedited the results because they knew a fight was coming up and they do that now when fights are close or the collections are done close to a fight, and here he pulses back up to between 60 and 80 picograms. \u201cThere\u2019s some misconception out there,\u201d Novitzky continued. \u201c did not say this fight is absolutely not happening next week. In fact, they, I think, were understanding of these issues but said, \u2018Look, optically, this doesn\u2019t look great, and we feel that, out of an abundance of caution, that we need to have a public hearing and be very transparent about this, because this is some weird shit.\u2019\u201d But Jeff Novitzky claims none of Jon Jones\u2019 tests contained significant levels of Turinabol. According to Novitzky, the amount of this anabolic steroid in Jones\u2019 samples didn\u2019t reach \u201cperformance-enhancing\u201d levels. \u201cLook, I\u2019m not an expert,\u201d Novitzky said. \u201cI don\u2019t profess to be. My background is in finance and accounting. I traced the money back in the old days, but I know who those experts are out there in the world, and these are them. They\u2019re, by putting these things in writing, putting their reputations on the line now and forever going forward. They\u2019re not going to do something like that because the UFC pays USADA to administer a program or because Jon Jones is a popular fighter and they want to see him fight this weekend. That\u2019s just not the way this world works. \u2026 Experts like this are very, very conservative when it comes to talking in absolutes like this. They don\u2019t normally do it. \u201cThese experts said based on these low levels of picograms, there\u2019s no performance-enhancing benefit, and that\u2019s an important point,\u201d Novitzky continued. \u201cBecause if you would\u2019ve told UFC, \u2018Look, this is still remnants from a year-and-a-half ago, but we can\u2019t rule out that he\u2019s not getting a performance-enhancing benefit from it\u2019 \u2014 well, in that instance, I\u2019ll tell you and I stand by this, I would leave this company if somebody told me otherwise. If there was any indication that there would be a benefit from them even though it technically wasn\u2019t a violation, I\u2019m not going to stand by while anybody licenses that guy to fight.\u201d What are your thoughts on Jeff Novitzky's statements? Is Jon Jones an innocent victim or the most intelligent rule breaker in the history of this sport?
