UFC 197 was supposed to see former champ Jon Jones return to fight for the belt against incumbent champ Daniel Cormier (whom Jones already beat once). But those plans are dashed upon the rocks of knee injury, with Cormier now relegated to the sidelines and Ovince St. Preux taking his place.

Yesterday, Cormier posted a heartfelt apology to Instagram:

Today, Cormier gave us a status update in the form of another Instagram post:

Going in the recovery starts now. Once again sorry for the delay but thank you for the support. DC

Eh, these things happen in MMA. C’est la vie.

But now this raises the possibility of Jones and Cormier having their rematch at the UFC at Madison Square Garden in November!
