Jon Jones knocked out Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 to reclaim the light heavyweight title belt. But several reports now say that Jones tested positive for a steroid on the night of the match.

TMZ first reported that Jones had tested positive for Turinabol, an anabolic steroid.

TMZ also reported that Jones has been stripped of his title, however, several other reports say that while the positive test has been confirmed, there has not been a final decision on the status of the championship belt.

According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, Jones has “not yet stripped of UFC belt.”

This would be the second time Jones has tested positive for steroids surrounding a UFC fight. In 2016, Jones was pulled from the UFC 200 card just three days before the event because of a failed drug test.
