After it was announced on Tuesday that Jon Jones was injured, forcing his fight with Daniel Cormier to be delayed until January, the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion took to his Facebook page to apologize to his fans.

Heres what Jones posted:

“I’d like to apologize to all the fans who were excited for UFC 178,” wrote the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion on Facebook. “Earlier this week, I suffered an injury while training for the fight. I’m having surgery tomorrow and I’m focused on recovering as quickly as possible. I look forward to getting back in the gym and defending my title on Jan. 3 in Las Vegas.”

Daniel Cormier also spoke out on the fight being postponed, heres what he had to say:

“It’s very disappointing. I started to train very hard. It’s a little discouraging, but now I have time to get completely healthy. I don’t know how hurt Jon is but we have to remember that I took this fight with a pre-existing (knee) injury. I could have fought through it, I just wish he would have done the same.”

UFC 178 will now be headlined by a UFC Flyweight Championship bout, as Demetrious Johnson will put his title on the line against Chris Cariaso.
