Daniel Cormier has been reinstated as the UFC’s Light Heavyweight Champion after his loss to Jon Jones at UFC 214 was officially changed to a “no contest” in the wake of JJ’s positive steroid test.

TMZ Sports broke the story … Jones was flagged for Turinabol — a banned anabolic steroid. The results from Jones’ B sample were made public Tuesday — confirming the bad news for Jones. As a result, the California State Athletic Commission overturned Jones’ victory and now has it ruled as a “no contest.”

Cormier appeared on “UFC Tonight” and said he’s already been contacted by Dana White … who informed him that the belt will be returned to him.

“Once again, I’m the UFC champion,” Cormier proclaimed. 

As for Jones … his UFC career is in serious jeopardy — he could get hit with a 4-year ban.
