Reports indicate that CSAC has overturn the UFC light heavyweight championship winning victory of John Jones over Daniel Cormier from July 29th due to Jones’ failed drug test from the day before the event. The outcome of the bout will be a no-contest.

At the event, Jones recaptured the light heavyweight title with a third round TKO victory over Cormier. “Bones” was making his long awaited return to the octagon following a year long suspension due to negligence from failing a drug test prior to UFC 200 in July of 2016.

While Jones failed his final drug test before he faced Cormier earlier this year, he did pass several drug tests leading into the July 29th event and even passed his post-fight blood test administered after winning the title. Turinabol, an anabolic steroid that caused Jones to fail his test, is not tested through a USADA blood test is only tested via urine.

On Tuesday, Jones and his camp were informed his ‘B’ sample had confirmed the initial findings of a drug violation.

With the result of the bout now becoming a no-contest, it is likely that Cormier will be awarded the belt UFC light heavyweight championship he lost that night in Anaheim, but there is no official word from the UFC at this time. In the meantime, Jones could face a maximum four-year suspension from USADA or CSAC. Jones and his team plan on appealing the positive tests, hoping to find anything that could have tainted a supplement he may have taken.

Either Jones is very naïve about what he puts into his body or he is a total cheater. Either way, the book needs to be thrown at him since this is his second violation within a year. If he is handed a long suspension it will likely mean his career is over.
