Daniel Cormier & Jon Jones

Unbelievable news coming from Las Vegas! Former champion and current interim champion, Jon Jones, is not going to fight at UFC for potentially scoring positive on a doping test. Jones and Cormier were to headline this historic event that is to take place this weekend, but the USADA’s doping test results showed a potential breach of rules.

The new headliner will be the previous co-main event heavyweight bout between Mark Hunt (12-10-1 MMA, 7-4-1 UFC) and former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar (5-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC), White said. The fight will be three rounds.
