Jon Jones Injured, Title Fight Moved

Reported by Jeremy Botter, Jon Jones  is out of his title defense against Daniel Cormier at UFC 178. Apparently, he rolled his ankle during training.

After all the hype that has happened thus far, I doubt this takes anything away from the fight. The bout is set to take place at UFC 182, Jan. 3, 2015.

*UPDATE*

Per Ariel Helwani

According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Jones suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and a sprained ankle during a wrestling practice. It is unclear at this time whether he will require surgery.
