    Report: Daniel Cormier out of UFC 197 battle with Jon Jones Initially reported by BJPenn.com, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier is wounded and will probably be forced to pull out of his forthcoming UFC 197 main event name defense against Jon Jones. There is not any word on when the promotion will delay the name defense to a later pay-per-view or if Jones will combat with a replacement because the severity of the injury of Cormier has not yet been revealed. Rumors swirled on Twitter which Cormier could be nursing a leg injury and it seems those rumors were true. The UFC 197 co-main event can also be a title fight, a flyweight title defense by Demetrious”Mighty Mouse” Johnson against undefeated former Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler Henry Cejudo. The title defense always has the choice to take the position that is headlining if all else fails. UFC 197 takes place in 3 months (Saturday, April 23, 2016) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here’s an updated look in the battle cardDemetrious 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 seemingly been released by the UFC following his unanimous decision loss to Rustam Khabilov. On a day where several fighters pranked fans and press 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 matters took a turn for the worse after he began facing tougher competition because he went 1-3 in his last four bouts, losing aggressive decisions to Khabilov, Francisco Trinaldo and Gleison Tibau while defeating Reza Medadi. The Northern Irishman definitely has ability and the skills to perform his way back to the roster if he find success outside the promotion and is only 29 years old.
