UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, a Rochester native, was flagged for a potential anti-doping policy violation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. The potential violation stems from the weigh-in for his light heavyweight championship bout with Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 last month. Jones won that fight via TKO in the third round to take the championship. Jones, 30, would be facing his second suspension from USADA if the potential violation is upheld. He was pulled three days ahead of a scheduled bout against Cormier in 2016 after testing positive for two banned substances. Jones had blamed his previous failed test on a male enhancement pill. USADA suspensions typically carry a two-year ban for first-time violators and longer suspension for multiple-time offenders.
