BJPenn.com first reported the news which was later confirmed by MMAFighting.com MMAFighting.com confirmed through multiple sources that Cormier has withdrawn from the bout but the injury is not yet known. If Jones is pulled from the card completely, a co-main event flyweight title scrap between champion Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo will likely be bumped up to headline the card.
