UFC is aware of the one-year sanction levied against Jon Jones as a result of his UFC Anti-Doping Policy violation, decided by a three-person arbitration panel held on Monday, October 31, 2016. UFC has been advised that the one-year suspension commenced on Wednesday, July 6, 2016. While the decision indicates no evidence of Jones intentional use of banned substances, it does highlight the care and diligence that is required by athletes competing in the UFC to ensure that no prohibited substances enter their system.

Jon Jones was scheduled to fight UFC light heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier at UFC 200 but was pulled from the card after it was revealed that Jones had been flagged for a potential Anti-Doping violation. It was later revealed that Jones tested positive for the banned substances clomiphene and letrozole.

In a report from MMA Fighting, Jones blamed his positive test on a tainted sexual performance pill. The pill in question was tested by USADA and was confirmed to be tainted by test results. However, the arbitrators in the hearing stated that Jones failed to do his research on finding out if anything in the pill was on the UFCs anti-doping policy and the WADA Code.
