MMA ODDS AND ENDS FOR SATURDAY: DANIEL CORMIER OUT OF UFC 197 WITH INJURY

Report: Daniel Cormier from UFC 197 battle with Jon Jones Originally reported by BJPenn.com, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier is wounded and will be forced to pull from his forthcoming UFC 197 main event name defense against Jon Jones. There’s not any word on when the advertising will delay the name defense to some or whether Jones will combat with a replacement because Cormier’s injury’s seriousness hasn’t yet been shown. Rumors swirled on Twitter week which Cormier may be nursing a leg injury and it appears those rumors were true. The UFC 197 co-main occasion can also be a title battle, a flyweight title defense by Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson against undefeated former Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler Henry Cejudo. The flyweight title defense always has the choice to take the place that is headlining if everything else fails. UFC 197 occurs in 3 months (Saturday, April 23, 2016) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here’s an updated look in the fight card: Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo Edson Barboza vs. Anthony Pettis Andre Fili vs. Yair Rodriguez Rafael Natal vs. Robert Whittaker Carla Esparza vs. Juliana Lima Clint Hester vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima Glaico Franca vs. James Vick Danny Roberts vs. Dominique Steele Efrain Escudero vs. Kevin Lee Chris Kelades vs. Sergio Pettis Norman Parke released by the UFC Former Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes winner Norman Parke has apparently been published by the UFC after his unanimous decision loss to Rustam Khabilov. On a day where several fighters pranked lovers and media for April Fools (such as Alexander Gustafsson’s fake retirement), this release was no laughing matter. Parke began his UFC career going 4-0-1 in his first five fights, but things took a turn for the worse after he started facing tougher competition as he went 1-3 in his last four bouts, losing aggressive decisions to Khabilov, Francisco Trinaldo and Gleison Tibau while beating Reza Medadi. The Northern Irishman is still only 29 years old and definitely has ability and the skills to work his way back into the roster if he find success away from the promotion.
