UFC fighters react on Twitter following news of light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ failed drug test.

Jon Jones has failed another USADA drug test, this time reportedly for the banned substance turinabol. The test was conducted after the UFC 214 weigh-ins, so it’s an in-competition failure, and while Dana White said that Jones hasn’t yet been stripped of the light heavyweight title he won back via knocking out Daniel Cormier, it’s hard not to think that this is exactly what’s going to happen.

This would be the third time Jones has been removed as UFC champion (including last year’s interim belt), so you can’t deny that he’s finding new ways to rewrite the history books. As a repeat offender, he’s facing a much longer ban than the twelve months he received after failing for clomiphene and letrozole last year.

Before we get to how fighters reacted on Twitter to this news, I just want to point out that I literally tweeted this after UFC 214, and little did I know I’d accidentally correctly predicted the future.

Anyway, on with the reactions…
