Before her death in 1998, his wife Julie Jensen wrote that if she died, her husband did it.  “I pray I’m wrong and nothing happens,” said her letter. “But I’m suspicious of Mark’s suspicious behavior and fear for my early demise.” It’s these words, often called a “voice from the grave,” that got the defendant’s conviction reinstated on Friday, according to Kenosha News.Kenosha Circuit Judge Chad Kerkman decided that this letter should be admitted as evidence, based on legal precedents.

  Jon Jones’ B sample from UFC 214 also positive for steroid turinabol Jon Jones is now likely to go to arbitration with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency in an attempt to clear his name. That process could take anywhere from three to six months. His representatives have maintained his innocence.Jones (23-1 MMA, 17-1 UFC) faces up to a four-year ban for his second doping violation and could be stripped of his title, according to UFC President Dana White.The potentially long penalty factors in Jones' first USADA doping violation, which resulted in his scratch from a title unifier with Cormier (19-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC) at UFC 200.

Jon Jones def. Daniel Cormier . UFC welterweight Hector Lombard was suspended for one year, issued a fine and had his win over Josh Burkman overturned to a no - contest by the NSAC.

This Account has been suspended.

The California State Athletic Commission has overturned Jon Jones' victory over Daniel Cormier at UFC 214 to a no-contest, CSAC executive officer Andy Foster told MMA Fighting's Marc Raimondi on Wednesday.

The decision comes less than a day after it was reported that Jones' B sample from his failed drug test prior to the July 29 fight confirmed the presence of an illegal substance.

The UFC has yet to announce if Jones will be stripped of the light heavyweight title, and the promotion has stated it will wait until the USADA has completed the adjudication process to make the decision.

Jones was flagged for the anabolic steroid turinabol after regaining his title and is facing a four-year suspension as a repeat offender.

The 30-year-old has denied any wrongdoing, with his camp saying they are investigating how the banned substance got into Jones' system.

Jones has not spoken on the failed test himself.
