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 out of his upcoming UFC 197 major event title defense against Jon Jones. There is not any word on if Jones will combat a replacement or if the advertising will just delay the title defense because Cormier’s injury’s severity has not been revealed. Rumors swirled on Twitter week which Cormier could be nursing a leg injury and it appears those rumors were true. The UFC 197 co-main occasion is also a title battle, a flyweight title defense by Demetrious»Mighty Mouse» Johnson against undefeated former Olympic golden medal-winning wrestler Henry Cejudo. The title defense can always take the headlining place if everything else fails. UFC 197 takes place in 3 weeks (Saturday, April 23, 2016) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here’s an updated look at the battle 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 from 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 single day where several fighters pranked fans and media for April Fools (like 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 began 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 definitely has ability and the skills to work his way back to the roster if he find success outside the promotion and is still just 29 years old.
