UFC 214: Jon Jones is officially off suspension and Daniel Cormier is officially having an anxiety attack

MMA: UFC 196-Weigh Ins Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is no longer suspended by United States Anti-Doping Agency, thanks to a failed drug test that booted him from the UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) event last July.

More on that debacle here.

That means “Bones” is cleared to battle longtime rival and current 205-pound kingpin Daniel Cormier at the upcoming UFC 214 extravaganza later this month in Anaheim, Calif., assuming there are no more hiccups prior to fight night.

Or fuck ups.

“Yo Jonny Bones, congrats on your suspension for steroid abuse getting lifted today,” Cormier wrote on Twitter. “Only a few more weeks now, so please no fuck ups. Thanks, DC.”

Yes, these two are still at it.

After coming up short against Jones at UFC 182, Cormier was able to capture the vacant crown when Jones was stripped and pulled from their inevitable rematch (because of this).

“Bones” eventually returned ... only to be upended by USADA. Hopefully nothing goes wrong between now and July 29.
