Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is washing his hands of Jon Jones, now that "Bones" is facing a possible suspension from United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) in the wake of a failed drug test.

Probably because Jones -- bounced from UFC 200 after popping for anti-estrogen agents -- has held the division hostage with his antics outside the cage, which recently had the top pound-for-pound fighter suspended from mixed martial arts (MMA).

Cormier told UFC Tonight that it's time to move on.

At 37, he may not have time, depending on the length of the suspension.

Glover Teixeira will bang it out with Anthony Johnson at the upcoming UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV) event, set for Aug. 20, 2016 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Rumble" was submitted by "DC" when they first went to war at UFC 187 in May 2015.

The Jones drug test debacle, meanwhile, is still under investigation.
