The Straight Edge Society wins again (or at least doesn’t lose this time), as CM Punk’s UFC 225 loss has been overturned due to a positive marijuana test from his opponent. MMAjunkie reports that Mike Jackson tested positive for marijuna in a test administered during the night of the fight and thus Punk’s loss was overturned.

The overturning means that Punk’s UFC record 0-1-0 (1 NC). UFC 225 took place on June 9, 2018. A statement from Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation public information officer Chris Slaby to the site read:

“The official result of a full contact martial arts bout can be changed to a ‘no contest’ as an outcome of an adverse post-bout disciplinary finding against a contestant. As detailed in the consent order provided, Mr. Jackson tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol due to marijuana following the June 9, 2018 UFC event at the United Center in Chicago.”
