LAS VEGAS - UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been fined $25,000 by the mixed martial arts promotion for violating its code of conduct by failing a drug test.

Jones tested positive for the main metabolite of cocaine one month before his fight against Daniel Cormier on Jan. 3. He was allowed to fight because cocaine is not a banned out-of-competition substance under World Anti-Doping Agency rules.
