A couple of months later, Jones was stripped of his belt because of the ongoing hit-and-run incident. Cormier competed with Anthony Johnson for the vacant belt at UFC 187. He won this bout via a rear-naked choke in round 2.

He then took on Jones again in a grudge rematch. There was a lot of trash talk before the fight, and the fight lived up to its hype. Jones landed a beautiful head kick, making Cormier wobble and then finishing him with punches. But to everyone’s surprise, this bout was later turned into a no-contest after Jones tested positive for turinabol metabolite.
