It looks as though the April 23rd, UFC 197 card has been dealt a massive blow, as according to reports, Daniel Cormier has withdrawn from the event due to injury. The light-heavyweight champ was scheduled to fight his rival and former champ, Jon Jones.

BJ Penn.com was the first to report that Cormier has reportedly suffered some sort of leg injury, and MMA Fighting.com has confirmed with sources that the champion has been forced to withdraw.

The UFC has not made any official announcement regarding the reported injury.

Cormier and Jones fought for the first time in January, 2015, and the latter won the fight via decision.
