No, this is NOT an April Fool's Day joke;

Quote :
The highly-anticipated rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones won't be happening later this month after all.

An injury has forced Cormier, the UFC light heavyweight champion, to withdraw from the fight, MMAFighting.com has confirmed via multiple sources. Cormier wasn't available for comment when contacted by MMAFighting.com Friday night.

BJPenn.com first reported the news.

Cormier and Jones were scheduled to headline UFC 197 on April 23 in Las Vegas. It's unclear at this time whether Jones, who hasn't fought since UFC 182 in Jan. 2015, will remain on the card or when Cormier will be able to return to action. Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo for the UFC flyweight title was the co-main event.

On Tuesday morning, Jones was arrested for violating his probation after receiving five traffic tickets last week. He was released from jail Thursday afternoon, and shortly thereafter the UFC announced that he would remain on the card. That was before the organization found out that Cormier would not be able to compete on the card.

The UFC has yet to officially respond to the news.

I actually think was a calculated move by Cormier, in light of recent events.

Well played, Daniel. Well played. Cool

Too bad about Rumble.
Didn't Ovince just fuck up his ankle in February?

Not sure Ovince has any answer to keep it on the feet.

Given the way things have gone lately, OSP is definitely gonna win, probably by head-kick KO or some shit.

osp is a beast but when placed against a top 5 opponent he folds. he is always going to be the gatekeeper to the elite of the lhw division imo.

Kinda ironic with all the trash talking going on between the two in the last presser. Heh Jones kept saying "your my pussy" heh.

I'm wondering if they are trying to get a match up for ufc 200 for dc and jones. if jones goes in and finishes osp with ease I bet you will see the rematch set as the headliner for 200.
