Endicott native Jon “Bones” Jones reportedly has tested positive for steroids.

According to, an anabolic steroid turned up in a drug test conducted before Jones won a July 29 fight against UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

TMZ initially reported Jones had been stripped of his title but ESPN indicated Jones had not yet lost his title.

Jones had been banned from competing for a year after failing an earlier drug test.

The UFC released a statement indicating the organization had been notified on Tuesday by the United States Anti-Doping Agency that it had informed Jones of a potential violation stemming from an in-competition sample collected following his weigh-in on July 28.

Jones turned 30 years old on July 19.
