What makes matters worse - at least in my opinion - is that their defense (if you want to call it that) isn't accompanied by a mound of paperwork showing that they vetted every single supplement and vitamin Jones was taking in the days, weeks and months leading up to UFC 214 in order to ensure something like this didn't happen again.

"The reality is, you can't fail a drug test", Cormier said.

Earlier this week, Jon Jones' UFC 214 third round TKO victory over Daniel Cormier was changed to a no-contest by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) due to the fact that Jones tested positive for the anabolic steroid Turinabol in an in-competition test administered by USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency). Let him and his team figure out what's going on and what happened.

Cormier has been riding a roller coaster of emotion ever since he lost the belt to Jones at UFC 214 on July 29.

"After the fight, Jones showed compassion, regardless of what has happened as humans, we must show compassion".

"He has been a model champion, a model husband, a model father, a teammate, a leader, and I aspire to be a lot more like that man", Jones said moments after his win. Because of the drug result, the UFC gave Jones a disqualification loss. Cormier held the light heavyweight title for most of the previous two years while Jones was largely sidelined by disciplinary issues. "If this does what it says it can be, it's a death sentence".

Daniel Cormier has taken to social media to plead for everyone Jon Jones space while he handles the steroid charges that could end his UFC career.

This is not the first time that the fighter has been removed from his title. "If it's a year (suspension) Jon Jones will come back and dominate the world again, I do believe".

Whatever the ultimate verdict, Cormier wants his followers to respect Jones.
