Jon Jones will meet with CSAC officials Tuesday afternoon to discuss getting reinstated with an MMA license following a a positive drug test in July 2017.

The meeting is expected to begin at 1 p.m. ET.

Jones tested positive for a steroid metabolite (4-chloro-18-nor-17β-hydroxymethyl,17α-methyl-5α-androst-13-en-3α-ol, a metabolite of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, or another chlorine-substituted anabolic steroid, per USADA) in relation to his UFC 214 title fight with Daniel Cormier on July 29, 2017 in Anaheim, Calif. Jones won that fight by third-round TKO, but the result was overturned to a no contest by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) following the positive drug test.

CSAC revoked Jones’ license back in February and he was fined $205,000.

Jones was given a 15-month suspension by USADA In September. The suspension was retroactive to when the sample was collected July 28, 2017 and Jones became eligible to fight again Oct. 28.

He is currently scheduled to fight Alexander Gustafsson in the UFC 232 main event Dec. 29 for the UFC light heavyweight championship.
