Daniel Cormier Reinstated As UFC Light Heavyweight Champion

Daniel Cormier is once again the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.

Cormier announced the news on Fox Sports:

Dana White called me today and he said,”If it’s a no contest, then the fight didn’t happen. He said, “One of you guys would have missed weight, he would have won the fight, you still would have kept the belt. He said, “Because of that, you know, the championship is getting returned to you, the fight is a no contest. If he cheated, he could not have fought and cheated, and still won the fight.” So, once again, I’m the UFC Champion. 

Cormier faced Jon Jones at UFC 214 at the end of July. Jones won the fight via a second-round TKO, but the result was overturned today after Jones’ failed drug test was ruled official.

Jon Jones could be facing a four-year suspension. As he is a repeat offender, he may never set foot in a UFC cage again.
