UFC in­terim light heavy­weight cham­pion Jon Jones will serve a dop­ing ban un­til next July af­ter an ar­bi­tra­tion panel de­nied his ap­peal. Jones was pulled from a July bout against Daniel Cormier af­ter the pos­i­tive drug test. Jones claimed to have taken a sex­ual-en­hance­ment pill but ended up test­ing pos­i­tive for two banned anti-es­tro­gen agents. The U.S. Anti-Dop­ing Agency de­clared Jones in­el­i­gi­ble. The ar­bi­tra­tion panel said Jones’ “de­gree of fault verged on the reck­less.”
