The UFC released a statement Wednesday based on the decision to overturn the result of the UFC 214 bout on July 29, between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier by the California State Athletic Commission.

The Jones ‘win’ now becomes a a ‘no-contest’ due to a potential Anti-Doping violation which is the result of an in-competition sample collected from Jones post weigh-in.
