[WATCH] Jon Jones Injures Shoulder Due To Takedown Attempt, Out Of UFC 295

UFC has just dropped a bombshell for its upcoming UFC 295 event…
As the much-anticipated bout between Jon Jones and Stipe Miočić has been cancelled due to an unfortunate injury to Jones.

This was set to be the main event, but now the spotlight has shifted to Jiri Procházka and Alex Pereira.
The news were shared by Dana White, who stated:

Jon Jones was training last night, got injured.
He was wrestling and he tore the tendon that connects your PEC to the bone, off the bone.

Eight months. Gonna need surgery. He’s out.

A video of the injury emerged online.
It took place when Jones went for a takedown. Check it out below:

White also revealed that Tom Aspinall will be fighting Sergei Pavlovich for the interim heavyweight title instead, as the co-main event:

So the main event is Procházka vs. Pereira. The co-main event now is Pavlovich versus Aspinall for the interim heavyweight championship.

Sergei Pavlovich, the number two ranked heavyweight, 18-1 with 15 knockouts. He has an 83% finish rate. His last seven wins all ended in the very first round.
He’s tied with Hall of Famer Don Frye for the second longest knockout streak in UFC history. His last three wins have been over Derek Lewis, Tai Tuivasa and Curtis Blades. He’s aiming to become the fourth Russian champ in UFC history.

Tom Aspinall, he’s the number four ranked heavyweight. He’s 13-3 with ten knockouts and three subs, that’s a 100% finish rate. Eight of his last nine wins have come in the first round. He has never seen the third round in his UFC career.
Out of seven fights, he’s won five performance bonuses. This guy is a beast. And he is looking to be become the first British heavyweight champion in UFC history.
