Jones failed an out-of-competition drug test administered by USADA. It was later confirmed that the former champ tested positive for two banned substance: clomiphene and letrozol.

This hearing will be separate of the case brought against him by USADA.

McGregor and Diaz will face the music for their UFC 202 press conference fiasco in which full cans of Monster Energy and water bottles were hurled into the crowd.
