UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has suffered a cut above his left eye with about two months left before his UFC 178 title defense against Daniel Cormier.

Luckily he has plenty of time to heal.

it would suck major balls if this fight were to be scrapped, as i genuinely believe Cormier is going to beat Jones

I also think Cormier has a good chance of beating Jones. Coin toss IMO.

Jones would have to be the first guy to actually take Cormier down. Short of that, I just don't know. Daniel is surprisingly elusive and has never been hurt striking...and since Jones rarely ever does significant damage with strikes other than eye gouges Cormier is probably by far the most likely to do damage standing. Perhaps the best chance Jon has is getting a sub. He's underrated in that department. However, if Mir, Silva, and Barnett couldn't do it...

Having said that Jones really does have a good chance of simply keeping his range as he does so well with jabs and front kicks to the knees and neutralizing the grappling game.
