On the eve of his most recent fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 214, we talked to Jon Jones about coming to terms with who he is and his legacy in UFC.

Jones defeated Cormier, but In the days following this conversation, the U.S. Anti Doping Agency announced that a pre-fight urine screening came back positive for the steroid Turinabol. USADA later acknowledged that Jones passed a post-fight blood screening.

As a result, his victory has been declared "no-contest"—on September 13, 2017, the UFC officially stripped Jones of his title, reinstating Cormier as Light Heavyweight Champion. Jones has denied any wrongdoing.
