UFC reportedly looking to book Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier II for UFC 200

Jon Jones Daniel Cormier

The UFC has been left in a bit of a scramble after Conor McGregor announced his retirement, un-retired, and was pulled from his UFC 200 welterweight main event scrap with Nate Diaz.

While Nate Diaz was supposed to fly to Vegas to discuss new opponents for the fight, a report emerged Friday morning that Diaz had now been pulled from the card for unknown reasons. A new report has now emerged from LayzieTheSavage which indicates that the UFC could be looking to book Jones-Cormier II sooner rather than later if Jones defeats Ovince Saint Preux this Saturday at UFC 197.

Given Conor McGregor’s announcement on Thursday that he isn’t retired, and is still ready to go for UFC 200, the UFC may be looking to re-book that fight at a later date, potentially at UFC 205, the UFC’s first event at the Madison Square Garden.
