UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones has once again tested positive for a banned substance. This time, Jones tested positive for turinabol, an anabolic steroid, following his win over Daniel Cormier at UFC214.
Naturally, Twitter had some thoughts on the situation.

If there's one story that could steal any of the headlines away from #MayweatherMcGregor it was a Jon Jones drug test failure. It happened.

An unfortunate casualty of the situation is Twitter user @jonjones, who is not the UFC fighter, but rather, a self-described “tech geek” from Brooklyn.
I've gotten over 1000 notifications in the last five minutes and I can see my phone's battery draining. I'll be back shortly to reply to all
