Daniel Cormier reinstated as UFC light heavyweight champion

Daniel Cormier reinstated as UFC light heavyweight champion”

But Jones tested positive for the steroid Turinabol in an in-competition drug test and the "B" sample confirmed the positive test Tuesday.

It all began when Jones" B-sample from the event came back positive for the same substance on Tuesday, inciting a wildfire that lead to Jones' third-round TKO win over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 to be changed to a no-contest and ending with Cormier being reinstated as the UFC light heavyweight champion as "Boes' was removed from the official rankings.

Jon Jones has finally broken his silence after a drug test administered one day ahead of his fight against Daniel Cormier came back positive for the steroid Turinabol.

The UFC has not announced when Cormier will defend the title yet.

Cormier (19-1) has never lost to any opponent except Jones (22-1), the troubled UFC star.

The 30-year-old Jones could face a four-year suspension from the California commission for his second failed test, but his representatives have indicated he is expected to appeal the result by arguing that it resulted from a contaminated nutritional supplement, a defense that has worked in previous MMA doping cases.

He was originally stripped of the title in 2015 following a hit-and-run incident.
