Despite a recent high-profile drug-test failure, Jon Jones is optimistic he’ll be back in the UFC octagon “really soon.” The UFC interim champion is No. 1 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA light-heavyweight rankings , and he’s No. 2 pound-for-pound behind flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson. However, after a history of out-of-the-cage troubles prompted UFC officials to strip him of the division’s primary belt, Jones (22-1 MMA, 16-1 UFC) defeated Ovince Saint Preux in April to set up a title-unification bout with reigning champ Daniel Cormier (17-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC). However, just three days before the event, USADA, the UFC’s drug-testing partner, notified Jones of a potential anti-doping violation – due to the anti-estrogen drugs  clomiphene and letrozole – and “Bones” was pulled from the card: Jones is currently under temporary suspension from USADA and the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
