And he doesn't sound too worried about passing.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones had a little visit from Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) ahead of his upcoming UFC 182 title fight against Daniel Cormier, which takes place on Jan. 3, 2015 in Las Vegas (more on that here).

"Bones" even recorded the process.

The Nevada State athletic commission just stopped by my house and hit me with that random.. Only thing I'm on is that #PHW pure hard work! They're probably wondering how my chicken legs are so strong. I've had a few @muscletech products but that's all legal :)

Jones has never tested positive for illegal or performance-enhancing drugs in his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career and I wouldn't expect this time to be the first. The same holds true for his opponent, though it's still nice to see NSAC stepping up in a big spot.

More please.
