With just two days to go until UFC 200, former UFC pound for pound kingpin Jon Jones was pulled from the event for a potential USADA anti-doping violation.

Jones appeared at a press conference, where he addressed the situation and fielded questions from media members regarding the potential violation. During the course of the presser, Jones revealed that he would be returning home to Albuquerque rather than stay in Vegas to attend the event he was supposed to headline.

Upon arriving in Albuquerque, Jones posted a picture he took of a rainbow to Instagram, along with the caption:

I’m grateful to be back home in Albuquerque, literally just landed. This rainbow was the first thing I saw while leaving the airport just now. It immediately made me smile on the inside. Notice the dark and gloomy skies around it? This rainbow gave me an instant feeling of hope. It represents to me beauty, light and gratefulness even in dark situations. It was almost like the image told me not to worry, that everything will be good.

Stay tuned for updates regarding Jones’ situation as they become available.
