Details On The Drug That Jon Jones Reportedly Tested Positive For
On Tuesday, TMZ reported Jon Jones failed a drug test, which was administered the day before he fought Daniel Cormier at UFC 214. They also said Jon tested positive for an anabolic steroid called Turinabol. I don’t know anything about performance enhancing drugs since I am a dud with a hundred pounds of extra body-fat but it appears Dave Meltzer did his research because he was on Wrestling Observer Radio and said the following:
“On this drug, just so you know what the deal is… This is a [weight] cutting drug essentially, and I believe that its detection time is six weeks, so it’s not like [Jones] took it 18 months ago and got unlucky. Detection times are not full-proof — it says six weeks, could it have been three months? Yes.
“This drug will build some muscle, but there’s so many drugs that would do better [at building muscle], and it’s really not worth the risk of this drug to build muscle compared to other drugs.
“So, what you would be using this drug for is when you’re cutting weight and you’re trying to not lose muscle as you cut weight, that would be the protocol of when you would use this drug. Bodybuilders will use it during contest time, not during the off-season. A weight class competitor would use this drug in, let’s say power lifting, or any sport where you have to make a weight division, and you don’t wanna be weak when you make the weight division. It keeps your strength up while you’re losing your size.”
I am not a doctor but I still think Jon has to use the same excuse as last time. D*ck pills.
