Jon Jones Likely to Face Cormier-‘Rumble’ Winner Upon Return From Suspension, UFC Boss Says

Even though his most recent transgression sabotaged the UFC 200 main event, Jon Jones will probably receive an immediate light heavyweight title shot when he returns to action this summer.

The former 205-pound king is currently serving a one-year suspension for testing positive for the banned substances clomiphene and letrozole during an out-of-competition drug test administered by the United States Anti-Doping Agency prior to his title bout against Daniel Cormier at UFC 200.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm sorry, what? "an immediate light heavyweight title shot when he returns". Why does he deserve that after his behavior lately. Jones gets under my skin because of his personality. Great fighter, but I can't stand him

UFC is desperate to make big money fights this year with McGregor away and Rousey gone. Jones shouldn't get a title fight after his actions, you are absolutely right

Jones deserves this. Hard to guess who will win from Cormier vs Rumble, but whoever it is, they better be prepared for the beast in Jones
