Jones, 30, is now likely to go to arbitration with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in an attempt to clear his name. That process could take anywhere from three to six months. His representatives have maintained his innocence.

Jones (23-1 MMA, 17-1 UFC) faces up to a four-year ban for his second doping violation and could be stripped of his title, according to UFC President Dana White.

Giancarlo Stanton Stokes Baseball's Great Home Run Debate

  Giancarlo Stanton Stokes Baseball's Great Home Run Debate The Marlins slugger's power surge has reignited one of baseball’s fiercest debates.From a strictly numerical standpoint, this isn’t a complicated question.

In an interesting twist, Jones passed out-of-competition tests on July 6 and July 7 and also passed a blood test conducted on fight night, though USADA cautioned it was too early to draw conclusions because turinabol is only found via urine tests.

The theme surrounding the pound-for-pound great's rematch with Cormier was redemption, with the promotion highlighting his out-of-cage troubles with USADA and the law. In the lead-up to the fight, Jones took exception to Cormier's accusations that he knowingly cheated.

Before news of the failed UFC 214 broke, Jones was trying to queue up a fight with ex-heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar, while the promotion was working on a fight with current champ Stipe Miocic for UFC 218.
