Twitter reacts to UFC champ Jon Jones' B-sample drug-test failure – and the takes are extra hot

The final boom may have been lowered on Jon Jones’ career on Tuesday when officials announced the UFC light heavyweight champion also had a banned substance in his drug-test B-sample.

Jones (23-1 MMA, 17-1 UFC) was notified of a potential violation by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) this past month following his title-winning knockout of Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 in July. It was Jones’ second incident with USADA in two years, the previous of which led to a one-year suspension.

“Bones” and his team have maintained his innocence. He’ll still have an opportunity to prove it during arbitration, but his B-sample also showing a banned substance will be a difficult bit of evidence to overcome.

Jones is still entitled to due process, but the most recent news in his seemingly never-ending saga didn’t prevent fellow fighters from rushing to judgement.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Jones’ B-sample results.
