The hype for UFC 178 was through the roof last week. Following a media day scuffle and an intense off-air exchange, MMA fans were clamoring for Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier.
But here we are just a few days later and it looks like the much-anticipated bout has been put on hold:

Cormier will now have to wait all the way until January 3rd to get his shot at Jones and the light heavyweight title. To call this a major bummer, certainly doesn’t do it justice. This fight had a ton of buzz behind it. Both hardcore and casual fans simply couldn’t wait to see the two stars thrown down in the octagon.
Now, all they can do is wait. Wait four and a half more months, to be exact.
