    214 was July 29th, it's almost been a month since then. How can they take that long for test results??? Seems like it should be much quicker.

    I guess they had to retest it 100 times or so.

    yes, it does. Remember last time he failed it took 17-18 days before the results came in. It's not uncommon for results to take 2-3 weeks. Then they have to notify governing bodies and athletes before they are released.

    Seems pretty unusual. I have no faith in the USADA. None. There is no way Jones was using with a know test date coming.

    That's what I was saying. I thought he was in the clear because it has been a month which made it even more shocking when he popped.

    Yep just like how Jones would never break pregnant lady's arm and flee the scene.

    When a positive comes up, they retest a bunch of times before reporting it.

    I thought the same thing...maybe because they had to test both A & B samples it takes longer?

    He was popped a day after the fight. That triggered a mandatory retest and other things to happen. It's not that the original test took a month. We the public are just finding out about it now though.

    Test results normally take like 16 days. This was substantially more than 16 days

    a month is fairly quick. it's taken longer than that before for a failed test to become public.
