Jon Jones was flagged by USADA for a potential doping violation late Wednesday night and was removed from UFC 200 as a result. At his request he asked for the B sample to be tested as well, it has since come back with the same results according to Fox Sports.

"I can confirm that Mr. Jones' 'B' sample results have been reported by the laboratory and the results confirm the findings of the 'A' sample," Ryan Madden, USADA spokesman told FOX Sports on Friday.

Jones was flagged for an unnamed substance after an out-of-competition test from June 16 came back tainted.

Jones has denied taking any substances knowingly but apologized to his opponent, Daniel Cormier.

Jones faces up to a two year suspension.

With Jones being removed the UFC scrambled to find Cormier a new opponent and announced last night that Anderson Silva would be facing Cormier.
