On Wednesday, the USADA ruled that UFC fighter Jon Jones would receive a fifteen-month sanction for his 2017 anti-doping policy violation. The sanction began retroactively, starting on July 28, 2017, when Jones tested positive for a banned substance, meaning that Jones will be eligible to fight again starting on October 28 of this year.

Jones tweeted about the sanction on Wednesday night:
