Daniel Cormier talks championship reinstatement, Jon Jones' failed tests

Jones posted to Twitter on Thursday after his "B" sample from the test confirmed initial results and he was stripped of the UFC light heavyweight title.

This is the second failed test of Jones' career. The disgraced former champion is potentially looking at a suspension of up to four years, not to mention possible fines and loss of income from being unable to compete or represent sponsors. "He cheated, and the reality is, for me to say I don't want this title when I was going to be in championship fight anyways, financially it's just a big difference if I don't fight as the champion as opposed to fighting for a vacant title".

Jones, 30, was previously banned for a year after failing a doping test in the run-up to a title fight against Cormier in July, 2016.

The Jon Jones steroids drama continues.

"I call upon you to take a breathe, lay off of Jones".

"I believe it points to the fact that losing to me was not really an option for Jon, and whatever had to be done was going to be done in order to ensure that didn't happen".

"If all these supplements are so easily messed with, why haven't I tested positive in 12 years? That's where the frustration comes from". Having failed a urine analysis taken following the July event's weigh-in, this week he had his original win over Daniel Cormier overturned to a No Contest. "But I think a lot of questions about the belt will be answered once I defend the title again".

"I was there. I fought".

You don't show ur support for me by hurting others.
