    Default Jon Jones out of UFC 170 Title Defense against Glover Teixeira

    Jon Jones out of UFC 170 Title Defense against Glover Teixeira



    LAS VEGAS -- Hope you didn't book a flight to see that Jon Jones-Glover Teixeira fight in Las Vegas just yet.

    Just one day after UFC president Dana White announced that Jones would fight Teixeira in the main event of UFC 170 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, White said Jones won't be fighting on Feb. 22.

    "I told you yesterday that Jones will fight on Feb. 22," White told reporters following the UFC 167 press conference. "He won't fight in Feb. 22. He just pulled out of the fight. He's not fighting Feb. 22."

    Adding an air of mystery to the situation, White declined to say why the UFC light heavyweight champion won't defend his belt on that night.

    "He's not injured," was the only further info White offered on the reasons for the pullout. White also said he believe Jones-Teixeira could go off in March.

    The UFC boss also indicated that UFC 170 will go on as planned at Mandalay Bay, with a new main event to be named later.
    Can't wait to hear the explanation for this.

    Me too. Im a big Jones fans and to me this is ridiculous. White states it was Jones that pulled out, this after requesting Glover. Man let the circus begin

    Experimental surgery to implant an actual personality?

    It takes a long time to rehab from that.

    Fight is not cancelled, it is just delayed. Should be in March instead of February. Bones was just in one hell of a war and had a busy calendar this year. I think he's earned a couple of extra months off if he wants it.
