    “I told you yesterday that Jones will fight on Feb. 22,â€￾ White told reporters following the UFC 167 press conference. “He won’t fight in Feb. 22. He just pulled out of the fight. He’s not fighting Feb. 22.â€￾

    This is really odd. I don't remember seeing someone pull out of a fight that's 3 months away and it not being due to injury. Have to see what develops from this
