Smith Doesn’t Care About Jones Testing Positive

On Wednesday night, Jon Jones was revealed to have tested positive for 33 picograms of turinabol, the performance enhancer that has plagued him since UFC 214 in 2017.

The turinabol would be found in Jones’ system during an in-competition VADA drug test that came during the weigh-in day of December 28th, with Jones testing clean a day later. It has been found in a few of Jones’ tests since October of 2018, but has been cast off due to the performance enhancer still in his system and “pulsing” at various points.

His opponent for UFC 235, Anthony Smith, does not care the amount of turinabol in his system, and is ready to go to war on March 9th, if Jones is licensed by the Nevada Athletic Commission later this month.


“If you’re hitting me up about this, don’t. I truly don’t care,” Smith said. “Picograms, no picograms, Olympic sized swimming pools, grains of salt ‍… I couldn’t care any less. I signed on the line and did it knowing what I was signing up for and with no expectations. I’m good, y’all. ”
