Daniel Cormier

By FCF Staff

Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier may have one of the most heated rivalries in recent MMA history, but the latter is wishing the UFC champ all the best, following the news that Jones has entered drug rehab.

On Tuesday, Jones and the UFC confirmed that the light-heavyweight will undergo a drug treatment program, after the fighter tested positive for cocaine metabolites in December. Since the drug is not a banned, out of competition substance by the World Doping Agency, the Nevada State Athletic Commission will not penalize Jones.

In a follow up report from MMA Fighting.com, here is what Cormier had to say about Jones, and the fighter’s drug test.

“I am aware of Jon’s test, and if there is anything to say it is this: there are a lot of people you impact, so please let’s get it together. Good luck on your rehab!”

Jones outscored Cormier for the unanimous decision win at UFC 182, which took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. The bout marked the first time in 16 pro bouts that Cormier had been defeated.
