UFC’s Jeff Novitzky Debunks Jon Jones Controversy
Jeff Novitsky, the UFC Vice President of Athlete Health and Performance, recently became the victim of fake news following an appearance on Octagon announcer Bruce Buffer’s podcast.
Following his victory over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214, Jones was notified that he had tested positive for the steroid Turinabol in a sample collected on July 28, the day prior to the fight.
Novitsky released a statement via MMAFighting on Wednesday, debunking the fake news claims.
Jones has a prior sanction from USADA, making it doubly difficult for him to escape this case without additional punishment.
