USADA on the record

on-the-record statement that can be attributed to “a USADA spokesperson.”
“USADA can’t comment on an ongoing case, but importantly all athletes under the UFC anti-doping program are innocent unless and until the established process determines otherwise. As part of this process, Mr. Jones is given the opportunity to be heard, confront and cross examine the evidence and have the ultimate decision of whether he violated the rules or not be decided by independent judges. It’s only fair to let due process occur before drawing any conclusions about Mr. Jones.”
Update #2:  

1. The date Jones was tested the sample in question was the July 29th test?


“Given that Mr. Jones’ representative has publicly commented on the case, USADA can confirm that he has been notified of a potential anti-doping policy violation stemming from an in-competition sample he provided after his weigh-in on July 28, 2017. Because this is an ongoing case, at this time we are not going to provide any further details.”


2. Is the test positive for the anabolic steroid Turinabol


“Given that Mr. Jones’ representative has publicly commented about the substance, USADA can confirm that his sample tested positive for turinabol.”
