Oh wait. You most certainly have. Echoing shades of his good friend and peer Anderson Silva, word has arrived that interim UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones’ failed UFC drug test, which prevented his anticipated UFC 200 main event with Daniel Cormier from happening, was reportedly due to a pill for erectile dysfunction.

The news surfaced this evening from UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping on his “Countdown” podcast on Sirius XM Radio (via BJPenn.com):

There’s been no confirmation for just what caused the failed test, where Jones tested positive for two estrogen blockers. However, Jones recently posted a positive message online saying that he and his team had found some “really good” news and he expected to be back in the Octagon very soon.

Dana White backed that with his own statement that it was looking like Jones didn’t actually test positive for the two banned substances everyone thought he did. And with seemingly just as many random USADA tests failed due to tainted supplements as for legitimate banned substances, the UFC’s relatively young anti-doping program is clearly still undergoing some serious going pains.

Whether or not Jones becomes one of the UFC athletes to prove his failed test was due to a legitimately taken medication remains to be seen, yet either way, Jones could be forced to serve a small ban due to the fact he did not disclose he was taking the substance to USADA this summer.

Perhaps now we know why. If you enjoyed this story, please share it on social media!
