The unthinkable happened Tuesday after reports revealed Jon Jones had failed yet another test for performance enhancing drugs following his third-round knockout over former champion Daniel Cormier at UFC 214.
Rumors and speculation has run rampant over whether or not Jones will be stripped again for failing as was the case in his interim title win over Ovince Saint Preux last year.
Check out what fight fans, fighters, and writers alike had to say on social media after hearing the news:
CONFIRMED with Dana White: Jon Jones failed drug test at UFC 214. Per White, he hasn't been formally stripped of title yet. Wow.
