Jones and Cormier both came up clean in their in-competition testing, though Jones' testosterone/epitestosterone levels remain irregular in the post-fight tests much in the same way they were irregular in out-of-competition testing done in early December. A carbon isotope ratio test was done on two Jones' out-of-competition samples and came back negative for synthetic testosterone.
In one of those earlier tests, taken on Dec. 4 and also shown below, Jones tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a cocaine metabolite. Because cocaine is not prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in out-of-competition testing, Jones faced no punitive action from the NAC. The commission uses the WADA code as its guideline.
As MMAFighting.com reported Tuesday, all of Jones' post-fight tests came back clean. Cormier's tests were clean across the board.
Jones defeated Cormier by unanimous decision to retain his UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 182 on Jan. 3.
