The mixed martial arts (MMA) world -- Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in particular -- is still reeling after a terrible start to the New Year that saw four stars fail pre- and post-fight drug tests, including light heavyweight champion Jon Jones testing positive for cocaine prior to his title fight against Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 on Jan. 3, 2015.
