Jon Jones has been stripped of his title following a failed drug test at UFC 214.
With Jones stripped of the light heavyweight championship for the third time in his career and his win over Daniel Cormier being changed to a no-contest, the UFC has reinstated Cormier as the promotion’s 205-pound king.
Jones tested positive for anabolic steroid Turinabol and his B sample confirmed the positive result.
But while Jones is facing a four-year suspension for his second failed performance-enhancing drug test, the former champion is emphatically denying ever using steroids.
Jones responded to a fan and swore on his children and God that he never took PEDs.
Dude the truth is I would never do steroids, I put that on my children and I put that on my Heavenly Father https://t.co/i8EEbrQU5x

Of course, the drug test results suggest otherwise, but Jones still has to go through the process with USADA and the California State Athletic Commission. He will have a chance to prove his innocence, but right now, it isn’t looking good.
