Jon Jones’ UFC 214 Win Over Daniel Cormier Changed To No-Contest

According to a report from MMAFighting.com, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has changed the result of Jon Jones’ UFC 214 win over Daniel Cormier to a no-contest.

It was revealed last month that Jones had tested positive for the steroid Turinabol in a USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) administered drug test surrounding the bout, and yesterday (Sept. 12, 2017) ESPN.com confirmed that the B sample of Jones’ test also showed that the banned substance was present in his system.

The failed test was administered after Jones weighed in and prior to his third-round TKO victory over Cormier to reclaim the UFC light heavyweight title.

Jones and his team have denied knowingly taking the steroid, and he’s still owed his due process before any consequences can be handed down on him.

At UFC 214, Jones was making his long-awaited return after serving out a one-year suspension due to yet another failed drug test that came last summer prior to UFC 200. “Bones”, who was scheduled to rematch Cormier at the landmark event, was pulled from the fight just days prior after testing positive for multiple banned substances.

Given that he’s now a repeat offender, Jones is now facing up to a four year suspension from USADA, while CSAC also has the right to punish him.

    Duh… . A real champ, CORMIER! You don’t see Connor testing positive for anything, or any real contenders. #ByeHaters

    • Draven

      Yeah but he’s well known for picking opponents and not defending his titles.

      • E Crash

        Lol, picking opponents. Rumble was top in class, so was Gustafson. He earned his belt against top contenders. Bad argument man.

        • Draven

          Conor picked his opponents, DC fights the same guys over and over. He barely got thru Gustafsson.

          • E Crash

            No, Jones barely got through Gustafson. In fact, many thought Gustafson won and it was a controversial decision. Additionally, Cormier fought purely with his fists to go toe to toe with a top world class striker. He refrained from using his olympic wrestling prowess for this fight. Cormier beat him on his own grounds. Do your homework bro.

          • Draven

            It wasn’t controversial at all, you can say Gus did more damage but it was Gus who was in danger of being finished in the championship rounds. He ate that elbow to the forehead then proceeded to eat more elbows, punches and knees. Never once was Jones was in danger of being finished and that’s what it came down to in the end. Not controversial at all!

            Cormier was the one who ate a knee and nearly got finished against Gus. Never once was Gus close to being stopped in his fight with DC. Cormier had to take a split decision which says he barely beat Gustaffsson.

          • E Crash

            You forgot about the part where Cormier didn’t fight as he normally did, or even read that part man. It’s ok though. Look at damage in both fights as well. Cormier is a real champ. Get over it.

          • Draven

            Cormier never beat Jones so he’ll always be looked at as the second best in the division and a paper champion, even as delusional as you are won’t ever admit to it.

          • E Crash

            Paper champ lmfao. Ok post champ lmfao.

          • Draven

            Yep, that’s right. To be the man, u gotta beat the man and DC has never beaten the man.

          • E Crash

            You’re right, DC has beaten “Men.” Legitimate fighters that never tested positive for anything lmfao. The man, lmfao. You’re disconnected from reality bro. PEACE.

          • Draven

            And he never beat the man jon jones and will always be looked at as jones’ superior therefore.

          • E Crash

            Roids = failure.

          • Draven

            excuses.

          • E Crash

            You’re right. Roids are an excuse, to an otherwise failure.

          • Draven

            Keep making excuses, DC is still a fake champion.

          • E Crash

            Lmfao, fake champion. K bro. Good luck with your logic. Hope it gets you somewhere.

          • Draven

            He never beat Jones for the belt therefore he’s a fake champion. To be the man you gotta beat the man. That’s how it goes!

          • E Crash
          • Draven

            who was the one the one that almost got stopped? who was the one that kept running away after eating the big elbow to the head? nothing u say changes the fact jones nearly finished gus, despite the amount of damage and success gus had earlier. jones controlled the rounds, kept coming forward and tried to finish. gus tried to win by points and it wasn’t enough.

          • E Crash

            Sure bro, we are done here. Good luck to ya watching the fights.

    • steven

      Right on E Crash. Much respect. In my opinion, Conor is a fraud. It looks like he will get the versus Nate III fight…which is the safest fight for him, because he knows he can go the distance with Nate. Ferguson, Khabib, and Lee all likely fuck Conor up bad. The Nate fight merely prolongs the inevitable ass-whipping the UFC has cleverly avoided for far too long.
      That said, his legend is secure and will only grow because as you point out, he will NEVER piss hot. Given the state of this sport, it is the only thing that could damage him irreparably…just like GAMBLING was the only thing that could keep Pete Rose out of the Hall of Fame.

      • E Crash

        Let’s not confuse fat old baseball players with real athletes lol.. Connor is a rare bird, he’s already proven himself. If you can’t see that he’s the UFC’s cash cow, you’re gonna waste brain cells. I was opposed to his WWE tactics for a moment, but he’s proven himself and really puts on a show for both hardcore fans and the new WWE bandwagon fans that want stories with men in tights. So Connor is basically his own division for UFC. Let it go mate. Now let’s move on to the real fan fights in divisions with great title defenses, regardless of how many people are drawn by fighters. I don’t care for a words show, I care for the real sport and good chess matches. Again, Connor is an exception. Can’t not love that guy.

        • JamesC

          Well said Connor is the Money weight champion. Problem is there are not a lot of fights left for him. Matter of fact, there are none. So similar to Bispings early career, except they were able to ride the cash cow a hell of a lot further. He is a few fights away from being where Pettis is right now. Btw…would love to see them fight

          • E Crash

            Connor could ride out in glory. UFC would be lost without em, but come on, give us some more cash fights. Diaz 3. If he loses, retire in glory. If he wins with ease, fight a real top contender and continue. Connor has made so much money that I don’t see him fighting more than 3 more fights, if not 2.

      • JamesC

        True…his ass whooping is coming…he may not get passed Nate, probably wont get passed lee or Ferg, he will not get passsed Khabib. But like you said, even though he is overrated and more hype than substance his legacy, just like Rousey will be fine as long as he doesn’t pop.

  • Bill Wolf

    Jon Jones’ whole career should have an asterisk.

    • steven

      How do you LOWKICK hipsters come up with such comprehensive, detailed, and profound commentary!!? Your depth here is off the charts! How do you do it?

      • Bill Wolf

        Brevity.
