Daniel Cormier lost his light heavyweight title to arch rival Jon Jones at UFC 214 however it has been announced that Jones has failed a drug test collected on July 28th at the weigh in for that fight.
If Jones is banned and stripped it could see the result changed to a no contest.
Cormier has issued a brief statement to MMA Fighting:
“It’s hard to find words to describe how I’m feeling right now,” Cormier said. “I’m disappointed to hear the news. It’s very emotional.
“We as athletes are entitled to due process, and I will refrain from saying much more until I know exactly what happened.
“In my mind, on July 29, I competed and I lost. I thought Jon Jones was the better man that day. I don’t know what to think anymore. I can’t believe we are going through all of this again. We will see what happens next.
“Thank you to all my fans who have supported me during this dark time. I love you all very much.”
