Sources: Injured Cormier pulls out of rematch with Jon Jones

Multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN.com an initial BJPenn.com report that the light heavyweight title rematch between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones at UFC 197 is off because Cormier has suffered a leg injury.

As of Friday night, there was no word from UFC officials on Cormier’s withdrawal or whether Jones will remain on the April 23 card in Las Vegas, Nev. and fight someone else.

Jones defended his title against Cormier at UFC 182 in 2015, but was later stripped of the belt because of disciplinary reasons.

Cormier won the title by beating Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 in May of 2015.
