"I'm not going to move a whole f***ing event to Los Angeles because we need Jon Jones to fight on Saturday because money, or we need ... none of that s**t".

"This is the same substance that was detected in Jones' positive test from July 28, 2017 and for which he received a 15-month sanction from an independent arbitrator under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy". USADA does not consider that a positive test, because it's been ruled to have been a result of the original failed test in 2017, but apparently the process following such a flagged test to get a license from the NSAC won't be able to be completed in time for the fight.

UFC 232 will no longer take place in Las Vegas on December 29th with the event being moved to Los Angeles following Jon Jones' inability to obtain a licence in the state due to an abnormality in a drug test.

Along with Jones vs. Gustafsson, UFC 232 will also feature Cris Cyborg (20-1) vs. Amanda Nunes (16-4) and Carlos Condit (30-12) vs. Michael Chiesa (14-4).

But as the Nevada State Athletic Comission in Vegas does not have time to investigate Jones in order to license him ahead of Saturday's event, the entire card is being moved 270 miles from Vegas to The Forum in Inglewood, outside of LA.

A December 9 test by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which administers the UFC's Anti-Doping Policy, found that a residual amount of the same substance for which he had just been cleared, turinabol. So the UFC made the unprecedented decision to move the event from Las Vegas to Los Angeles.

"Everybody here and everybody I just mentioned 100 percent believes Jon Jones is innocent".

Jones' long-time foe Daniel Cormier was incensed by the findings.
