As a result, the California State Athletic Commission overturned Jones’ victory and now has it ruled as a “no contest.”
Cormier appeared on “UFC Tonight” and said he’s already been contacted by Dana White … who informed him that the belt will be returned to him.
“Once again, I’m the UFC champion,” Cormier proclaimed.
As for Jones … his UFC career is in serious jeopardy — he could get hit with a 4-year ban.
