UFC 214: Jon Jones’ TKO overturned to no-contest; Daniel Cormier reinstated as light heavyweight champ
Oh, Jon Jones.
The California State Athletic Commission overturned Jon Jones’ third-round TKO of Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 to a no-contest on Wednesday. Following the CSAC’s decision, UFC President Dana White reinstated Cormier as the heavyweight champion.
The ruling comes one day after after Jones’ B sample from his failed drug tests ahead of the title fight on July 29 at Honda Center, tested positive for a banned substance.
The news was first reported by Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting.
