Daniel Cormier (Strikeforce.com)

One of the most anticipated light heavyweight rematches is off. 

Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones were set to meet for the second time in what was expected to be another epic match up between the two. Unfortunately for both men and fans around the world the fight is off. 

Cormier is reported to be injured and unable to fight at UFC 197. Both MMAFighting.com and BJPenn.com announced the news late Friday night although rumblings of a Cormier injury surfaced when Twitter user @TalkMMA tweeted out that D.C had been spotted at a wrestling tournament last week not able to walk. 

It is currently unclear what type of injury has caused Cormier to withdraw from the April 23 fight or weither or not Jones will stay on the card and face a possible replacement. Promotional officials are yet to respond to the news or comment on the event.
