Jon Jones Injures Leg, Fight With Daniel Cormier Moved to UFC 182 on January 3rd [FUUUUUUUUUUCK]


(Yeah, “postponed.” Like we don’t all know what that really means.)

Let’s be honest, the past 24 hours have been nothing short of miserable for us. And by “us” I mean, like, humanity. It has been a day that saw beloved actor/comedian Robin Williams pass and woman-beating piece of shit War Machine (see also: Oden, G) continue to sit somewhere inhaling air (Canada, maybe?). It was a day which all but confirmed that atheism is the right way to go. And now, this bullshit.

Thanks to an ill-timed “leg injury” (that is being reported as everything from a torn meniscus to a sprained ankle, or possibly both), Jon Jones has been forced out of his UFC 178 main event title fight with Daniel Cormier. As a result, the fight has been moved to UFC 182 at the MGM Grand on January 3rd.

Taking the place of Jones vs. Cormier in the main event of UFC 178 will be Demetrious Johnson‘s flyweight title fight against Chris Cariaso, which if you recall, was originally booked as the *co* main event of UFC 177. In one fell swoop, UFC 178′s estimated pay-per-view buys have gone from 1 million+ guaranteed to 250k if it’s lucky. But I can’t wait to see how the UFC tries to sell me this one as worthy of $60 (Hint: It rhymes with Conor McGregor. It’s Conor McGregor.)

No word yet if Jones’ injury is a delayed reaction from getting hit by Cormier’s *other* shoe as I speculate, but one thing’s for sure: Bones won’t be literally killing anyone anytime soon.

We’ll update you on this story as it develops.

-J. Jones
