Better edit this Bob! Jon Jones is out, potentially due to a violation of the anti-doping policy.

Wow. What an idiot. Was a big Jones fan at one time but was already rooting for Cormier in this fight. Thats now two main events that the UFC has had to call off for 200.

This sucks so bad. Luckily the card is so deep it shouldn't effect it too much. Monumentally stupid on Jones' part. I hope Cormier gets to at least fight on the card against a smaller heavyweight. Not fair to him.

Gegard Mousasi angling for the fight. He was already fighting on the card at 185, used to be Strikeforce 205 champ. Could be best out of a bad situation.

Jon Jones. The Josh Gordon of MMA.

I don't get it. It's really not that hard to stay out of trouble.

They don't test for recreational drugs out of competition so it's definitely performance enhancing but BJ Penn just got 6 months for using an IV so it doesn't automatically mean steroids. Michael Bisping said he wants the fight.

Theyll find someone for DC. Get him his cut of the pay per view. Mousasi seems most likely.

Rumor is Anderson Silva vs. Daniel Cormier. Pretty insane to get that on two days notice. That's as good of a late replacement as you're gonna get.

Looked up Silva last night. Saw he had surgery a few months ago that caused him to cancel a fight. Would be a big name.

It's official. 3 round, non-title fight. Cormier will rag doll him but still pretty awesome.

Poor card. Someone get Lesnar and Aldo off the juice and tell them both to engage.

I enjoyed the fights. Aldo looked great. Great moments for Nunes and Brock. Cain looked great. Great prelims. Cormier did what he had to do but it was boring.

Incredibly underwhelming all things considered. Felt more like a regular season game or a pro-am instead of a Super Bowl or Major. The hype was there though so I'm sure financially it was a huge success.

Yea I wasn't impressed.

Two first round knockouts bookended 3 blah fights. The two knockouts were pretty good. Lesnar,Cormier, and Aldo just did what they needed to do which was boring.

Brock Lesnar does nothing for me. I don't understand the fanfare for someone who is so obviously roided out of his mind.
