First broke by BJPenn.com and now confirmed by MMA Fighting via Ariel Helwani, Daniel Cormier is injured and has pulled out of the fight with Jon Jones. I guess as of now the “pussy” is not still there.
So DC is injured and out of rematch with Jones and apparently it is not a last minute April fools. pic.twitter.com/9eQk24U1bg

Feel free to join the rest of the internet as they freak out about this latest news, which seems like the last nail in the coffin of an already bonkers turn of events.
Over/under on the amount of uses of the word "pussy" in Jon Jones' next tweet? I reckon 3.

Jones should defend his belt against Rumble and then move up to HW and leave DC the scraps of 205.

Cut Daniel Cormier, give his roster spot to Chuck Liddell, have Chuck fight Jones for the belt.
This couldn't be more obvious, people.

No replacement and nothing official from the UFC yet. Who knows, maybe this will result in the Rumble Johnson fight that never was. But I hope Jon Jones just assumes his final form and moves right up to Heavyweight for the imminent Blood Wars.
Escape is futile.
