The world of MMA was shocked when it was announced by the UFC that Jon Jones, interim light heavyweight champion, has been removed from the main event of UFC 200 with opponent Daniel Cormier because of a possible anti-doping violation.
Dana White, UFC president, along with Cormier, 205-pound champion (6-1 UFC, 17-1 MMA), were in attendance at a Las Vegas new conference that took place in the Los Vegas MGM Grand Hotel and Casino to talk about the breaking news regarding Jones. The development seemed to crush both men just as much as everyone else in the world of MMA.
Reactions to the news of Jones’ most recent incident came swiftly and suddenly. See below for the top Tweets to the change in the main event for UFC 200, which will now feature Brock Lesnar (4-3 UFC, 5-3 MMA) fighting against Mark Hunt (7-4-1 UFC, 12-10-1 MMA) as the headliner.
