If I want to plan a PR for Jon Jones in two months, try pulling that together.

A December 9 test by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which administers the UFC's Anti-Doping Policy, found that a residual amount of the same substance for which he had just been cleared, turinabol.

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive Bob Bennett said Jones was allowed to withdraw his application for a fight license in Nevada after commission Chairman Anthony Marnell III said he wanted to postpone the fight until after a January hearing about Jones' recent doping tests.

Jones has twice been stripped of the LHW title: over the positive drug test, and over a 2015 hit-and-run incident involving a pregnant woman. "He's in fight shape, and I believe that he's been doing the right thing".

In a statement, Jones said: "I am focused on achieving my ultimate goal of reclaiming my light heavyweight title".

After Jon Jones' lengthy history of sabotaging himself, how could UFC officials decide to move an entire event from one city to another on one week's notice just to keep his main event bout intact?

The news only got worse even after he defeated Cormier in their rematch midway through 2017 at UFC 214.
