Overwatch has serious issues with toxic players , and in recent months, those problems only seem to have gotten worse . Kapkan mentions that the Overwatch team have taken 480,000 account actions since the launch of the game in early 2016.

Cormier initially didn't want to accept the belt, but after talking with UFC president Dana White, he became more open to once again being the light heavyweight champion. On Wednesday morning, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) overturned the fight to a no contest - no longer a win for Jones. "This is the second time that the fighter failed his drug test", according to USADA.

The California commission made its no-contest ruling after Jones' backup sample also failed a US Anti-Doping Agency test for the same substance, the banned steroid Turinabol.

Daniel Cormier has been reinstated as UFC light heavyweight champion. As a repeat offender, he faces a suspension of up to four years. After avoiding serious punishment in previous incidents involving cocaine use and a drunk-driving conviction, he was stripped of his title in 2015 after his involvement in a hit-and-run accident that left a pregnant woman with a broken arm.
