Recently it was reported that the B sample taken from Jon Jones at UFC 214 also tested positive for steroids, and now it’s been announced the fighter’s win has been overturned.

Jones stopped his longtime rival Daniel Cormier on July 29th, but following the Anaheim event, he tested positive for Turinabol. The light-heavyweight champion’s team, however, has denied that Jones knowingly took performance enhancing drugs.

According to multiple reports, the California State Athletic Commission has overturned Jones’ win over Cormier to a no-contest.

Jones is facing a suspension of up to four years, due to the fact he has been suspended by USADA in the past for a doping violation.
