UFC 159: Jon Jones injured, Sonnen to fight...

BJ Penn!

The injury bug is starting to spread. After rumors of the UFC on FUEL TV 9 event being in jeopardy due to an injury to Alexander Gustafsson, sources are now reporting that Jon Jones has suffered an undisclosed injury forcing him out of the UFC 159 Main Event.

UFC President Dana White could not have been happy when he got the call that one of the more anticipated UFC PPV events is losing one of the Main Event fighters. The injury that is forcing the Light Heavyweight champion to withdraw is said to be ‘very serious’ and he could miss “significant time” according to sources.

Trying to find a suitable replacement for the Main Event would be a difficult task, especially on such short notice. The fight is just under 4 weeks away, but a legend of the sport has stepped up: BJ Penn. When the 2x UFC champion heard of the injury to Jones, he made the call to White and asked for the fight.

The UFC granted Penn’s request.

UFC 159 is set to go down from New Jersey’s Prudential center on April 27. The Penn vs. Sonnen fight will serve as the evening’s headliner.
Happy April Fool's Day, everyone

Of course Jon Jones would get "injured" before the toughest fight of his career. And it's no surprise that Penn stepped up. He's fought at about LHW before, and witht he short notice he wouldn't want to cut weight since he already hates doing it with a full camp.

Penn has great subs and better TDD, this is going to be a good fight.

If we see the BJ of old and he takes his training camp seriously and comes in motivated, he wins this anyway he wants.

Light-heavyweight division is on notice.

Penn via Sonnen trying to imitate his idol Anderson Silva, but failing and slipping while doing some fancy move, falling on his head and knocking himself out.
