Dana White and the UFC have decided to not only strip Jon “Bones” Jones of his championship, but suspend him while he takes care of his legal issues. As a result of this, Daniel Cormier has stepped in as Anthony “Rumble” Johnson’s opponent at UFC 187 and they will be fighting for the vacated UFC Light Heavyweight Championship. Check out how the fighters reacted to the news on Twitter!

@JonnyBones best of luck with everything bro.

Not enormously surprised at the title being stripped but I am at the timing. Strong statement from UFC.

The UFC should have taken action when he got popped for coke, not let him fight Cormier, suspended him and forced him to get help.
