Another main event, another injury. The injury bug has now hit what was possibly the most anticipated bout of 2014.
UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones is out of his UFC 178 fight with Daniel Cormier due to an ankle injury. The news was broken on FOX Sports 1’s “America’s Pregame;” it was also reported that the fight will be postponed until January 3rd as the main event of UFC 182.
In addition, a Flyweight title bout between UFC Flyweight champion Demetrius Johnson and Chris Cariaso that was originally slated for UFC 177 will replace the Jones vs. Cormier bout as the main event of UFC 178.
Cormier, who was originally a replacement for Alexander Gustafsson, will have to wait a few more months for his shot at UFC gold.
