Jon Jones Eyes Redemption, Seeks Reversal of Cormier Bout Result
Jon Jones Calls for Reversal of Daniel Cormier Result Following USADA Break with UFC
As the relationship between UFC and USADA comes to a close, Jon “Bones” Jones sees an opportunity to right past wrongs, demanding his “No Contest” verdict against Daniel Cormier be overturned.
Following the surprising split of UFC and USADA, Jon Jones, the former light heavyweight champion, took to social media with a provocative post:
“I survived USADA”.
The tweet not only reflects his feelings about the anti-doping agency but also highlights his desire to reverse the result of his 2017 bout with Daniel Cormier, which was declared a “No Contest” after Jones tested positive for Turinabol. It’s worth noting that Jones has always maintained his innocence, arguing that the failed test was the result of a tainted supplement. With the UFC-USADA partnership ending, Jones seems to be hinting at the possibility of appealing the result once again, hoping for a verdict more in his favor.
The end of the UFC’s partnership with USADA has brought up past controversies, with fighters like Jon Jones looking to change their legacy. Whether or not Jones gets his wish remains to be seen, but it’s evident the fallout from the breakup continues to send ripples throughout the MMA world.
