The UFC has stripped Jon Jones of the interim light heavyweight championship.

The title was created in April after Jones defeated Ovince St. Preux at UFC 197. That fight was supposed to be against Daniel Cormier for the official title but Cormier had to withdrawl due to injury.

The decision to strip Jones (22-1) was made by Dana White after the United States Anti-Doping Agency suspended him for one year due to an out-of-competition drug test he failed prior to UFC 200.
