The fight itself, though thrilling from start-to-finish, was quickly ruled a "no-contest" and now, the possibility of Jones being given a four-year suspension from the UFC is a very realistic possibility.
The test reportedly posed questions about PED use before UFC 214 in July past year, the period around which he tested positive for anabolic steroid Turinabol. While Jones tested positive for turinabol, an anabolic-androgenic steroid, in a urine test administered a day prior to UFC 214, Jones successfully passed a blood screening immediately following his rematch against Cormier along with three other USADA administered tests taken earlier in July.
Following UFC 220 open workouts, Cormier was asked about Jones' lie detector test and he delivered an absolutely savage response to exemplify how unimpressed he was with the results.
Jones would go on to score a third-round knockout but was stripped after it was revealed that he failed the test.
Jones says he had no knowledge of taking performance-enhancing drugs.
He has been provisionally suspended by the UFC and is awaiting sanction from the California State Athletic Commission and USADA. He was stripped of his light heavyweight championship after defeating Cormier in 2015, stripped of the interim light heavyweight title following his win over Ovince Saint Preux. He was suspended for one year after testing positive to two banned substances (letrozol and clomiphene) before UFC 200 - blaming the result on a sex pill.
