Jon Jones gets randomly drug tested ahead of UFC 182

Jon Jones and his old friends at the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) got reacquainted with one another on Tuesday. Two weeks out from Jones' UFC 182 title challenge against Daniel Cormier, the UFC's light heavyweight champion posted an Instagram video of himself undergoing a random drug test at the behest of the NAC.

"The Nevada State Athletic Commission just stopped by my house and hit me with that random," Jones wrote. "Only thing I'm on is that #PHW pure hard work! They're probably wondering how my chicken legs are so strong. I've had a few @muscletech products but that's all legal :)"

Jones and Cormier are slated to settle their heated grudge match on Jan. 3 in Las Vegas, NV, in what many expect to be one of the biggest UFC events in recent memory.

Jones (20-1) has defended his 205-pound title a record seven consecutive times since becoming the youngest champion in UFC history. He is currently regarded as the number-one pound-for-pound fighter in the sport.
