Regardless of one’s opinion about performance-enhancing drugs and their legacy in the game, Barry Bonds holds the single-season home run record with 73, a total he reached in 2001.

The future isn’t looking very bright for Jon Jones . The UFC light heavyweight champion made his return to the octagon July 29 at UFC 214 , knocking out rival Daniel Cormier to secure the title. But about a month later, it was revealed that Jones tested positive for the steroid Turinabol , marking the

Jones, 30, is now likely to go to arbitration with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in an attempt to clear his name. That process could take anywhere from three to six months. His representatives have maintained his innocence.

Jon Jones ' B sample from UFC 214 is back and it's positive for steroids too. There are still more questions than answers regarding this latest positive test for turinabol , but the B sample makes it clear that this was not lab error or a false positive .

Jones' positive test at UFC 214 came from a urine sample taken after the official weigh-ins for the event on July 28. In an interesting twist, Jones passed out-of-competition tests on July 6 and July 7 and also passed a blood test conducted on fight night, though USADA cautioned it was too early to draw conclusions because turinabol is only found via urine tests.

Before news of the failed UFC 214 broke, Jones was trying to queue up a fight with ex-heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar, while the promotion was working on a fight with current champ Stipe Miocic for UFC 218.
