Jon Jones' latest troubling drug test compelled the UFC to move an entire pay-per-view show from Nevada to California on six days' notice, disrupting thousands of fans' holiday plans and shrinking his fellow UFC 232 fighters' paychecks. Yet Jones believes he's also a victim in this whole bizarre situation.Jones, who has served two previous suspensions for failed drug tests, tested positive earlier this year for very low levels of a banned steroid, and the Nevada Athletic Commission wouldn't license him to fight in UFC 232 in Las Vegas Saturday night.Gustafsson (18-4) is fed up with Jones' posturing ahead of the rematch of their highly competitive 2013 meeting, a narrow decision won by Jones.Gustafsson Thursday flatly labeled Jones as a cheater, saying he believes Jones knowingly took steroids. Jones is the show's most famous fighter and likely the biggest pay-per-view attraction.The UFC decided to stick with him after it determined that the levels of banned substance in Jones' current tests were too low to be considered a new positive test by USADA, which administers the UFC's anti-doping policy.Jones hasn't given an explanation for his failed doping tests, but his increasingly unrepentant comments on the subject suggest he's tired of apologizing for something he didn't do.
