One of Jon Jones’ most impressive victories to date is, from a records stand point, no more.
Following the news that Jones’ B sample from UFC 214 has also come back positive for the anabolic steroid Turinabol, the California Commission has over turned the fighter’s win over Daniel Cormier to a no-contest (according to a report from MMA Fighting.com).
Jones stopped Cormier in the third round of the July 29th event, and reclaimed the light-heavyweight title while doing so. “Bones” will continue to hold the 205 belt until his adjudication process with USADA is complete.
Since news of Jones’ USADA flag came out, the star’s management has denied the fighter knowingly used banned substances. Due to the fact Jones completed a one year suspension this past July from USADA, however, he’s facing a suspension that could be as long as four years.
Jones and Cormier fought for the first time in 2015, and the latter lost the bout via unanimous decision.
