Jon Jones & Brock Lesnar

UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones tested postive for steroids following the events of UFC 214 and thus has been stripped of the title. Because he defeated the champion Daniel Cormier, the title will be returned to Daniel. This is Jones' second time getting caught with drugs in his system by the UFC as the last time it happened was in 2016 when he was banned from the sport for a full year. Because of this, he could now be banned for up to four years.

This certainly throws a curve ball in the rumours of Brock Lesnar potentially facing Jones at the end of the year should he face a harsh suspension as a result of this situation.
