Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is no longer fighting Daniel Cormier at the upcoming UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV), scheduled for this Saturday (July 9, 2016) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Full report here.
That's because of a potential anti-doping violation under the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which informed "Bones" that a positive sample was returned during a June 16 out-of-competition drug test (UFC statement here). Today (Thurs., July 7, 2016), the embattled mixed martial arts (MMA) star will comment on his latest mishap.
The live feed is expected to get underway at 11:30 a.m. ET.
In the meantime, the promotion is expected to make an announcement regarding the future of Daniel Cormier, who is without an opponent for this weekend's big shebang in Las Vegas, Nevada, as the heavyweight showdown between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt takes over headlining duties.
Much more on the upcoming UFC 200 fight card, as well as the future of Jones, in the coming days.
