The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency dropped a bombshell on the MMA community late Tuesday with the announcement that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been notified of a potential doping violation.

It’s a stunning turn of events after Jones recaptured the title last month at UFC 214 with a third-round knockout of Daniel Cormier.

Jones tested positive for the anabolic steroid turinabol. It’s his second positive steroids test following UFC 200, where he was stripped of the interim belt prior to a scheduled title unifier against Cormier, and his third overall failed drug test after testing positive for cocaine following a win over Cormier at UFC 182.

Check out how the MMA community reacted on Twitter.
