No, Jon Jones has not been cut by UFC. Repeat: JON JONES HAS NOT BEEN CUT BY UFC. But it was an apparent (and funny) typo on Brandon Vera's Twitter that was quickly removed yesterday:

"just found out I’m firing Jon Bones Jones on March 21st in Denver Colorado. hope u heard it here first!!!!"

From Cage Potato:

We can only assume that Vera meant "fighting Jon Bones Jones," and that he won't be flying out to Denver to terminate Jones from his contract, Clooney-style. And the March 21st date may also be a misprint: MMA Junkie and MMA Weekly both report that the yet-unsigned fight is actually slated for March 31st, and will headline an Ultimate Fight Night card just four days after UFC 111 (March 27, Newark). The 3/31 Fight Night show will lead directly into the premiere of TUF 11.

Unless Vera has somehow taken over Dana or Donald Trump, I don't think he's "firing" Jones even if he wins. Still funny though.

Edit: Slightly changed the title so people don't get the wrong impression.

I changed the thread title so hopefully people don't think Jones has actually been cut, and again he has NOT been cut. It was meant as humor.

I think Vera is in huge trouble in this fight.

Uhoh Vera... this doesn't sound good for you.

This sounds like a fun one to watch.

Damn you, T9.

T9 strikes again.

I once tried to text a buddy "It's cool, I'm sober" (he needed me to drive somewhere). It came out "It's book, I'm roads".

Needless to say, there was some confusion.

Well, Easy Win for Vera

lol why would Vera fire someone.

And actually, Vera got the date right. Weekly has confirmed 3/21 as the event date. Venue likely is The Odeum Colorado (formerly Broomfield Event Center).
