CSAC overturn result of Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones at UFC 214 to no contest

The California State Athletic Commission today overturned the result of the main event between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones to a no contest.

The CSAC executive officer Andy Foster spoke to MMA Fighting about the decision on Wednesday morning.

Late last night, ESPN reported that the B sample from Jones’ failed drug test came back confirming that he had Turinabol in his system in-competition.

There has yet to be news reported as to whether Jones will have his title that he won at UFC 214 stripped and if he does, will Cormier remain the champion or will the title become vacant.

Prior to UFC 200, an event in which Jones was meant to face Cormier, who was the champion at the time for the title in the main event, he tested positive for two banned substances and was pulled out of the contest and suspended one year for the infraction.

Now that Jones has failed another drug test, he is facing a ban up of up to four years.
