Daniel Cormier Has Savage Response To Jon Jones' Successful Polygraph Test

Daniel Cormier Has Savage Response To Jon Jones' Successful Polygraph Test

The result of the fight was overturned and the light heavyweight title was awarded back to Cormier - who happens to be defending that very title against Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 220 on January 20.

There's little evidence of how the polygraph test could affect any potential punishment, as no fighter has used one to prove or even attempt to prove his innocence in the UFC's almost three-year anti-doping partnership with USADA.

It remains to be seen if it has any impact on what type of punishment Jon Jones receives, following his second USADA flag, but the former champ has reportedly passed a polygraph test regarding his postive test for PEDs.

Jones' problems outside the octagon have been well-documented at this stage but following the news that he had tested positive for the anabolic steroid turinabol just prior to his stunning UFC 214 knockout win over his great rival Daniel Cormier, irreparable damage has been done to his status as one of the world's premier mixed martial artists.

Since then, Jones has gone to extreme lengths to prove his innocence that he didn't deliberately take any banned substance prior to the fight.

Cormier, who has always had a strained relationship with Jones, compared him to Ted Bundy who was a serial killer, kidnapper, rapist, burglar and necrophile who assaulted and murdered numerous women in the 1970s.

This will be Cormier's first title defense since Jones' failed drug test, but the man himself has said he no longer feels the need to justify his status and is no longer going to sweat what people might think about his rivalry with Bones. "Right now I'm not watching as much anymore because these guys kinda pissed me off a little bit", Cormier said on The MMA Hour, via MMAFighting.com.

Jones is suspended while USADA investigates further and could face up to a four-year suspension if found at fault. "I'm done with that". Chances are good that if you want to get their attention on social media, you can, and they will most likely respond.

Another day, another twist in the Jon Jones saga it seems.
