Tuesday was a day of sorrow for Daniel Cormier, as he was told his chance at becoming UFC light heavyweight champion will have to wait.

Jon Jones suffered an injury in training and was forced to postpone their scheduled September meeting until January and UFC 182.

Cormier, who actually has his own knee injury but put off surgery to take the fight, sent Jones a “get well” message on Twitter.

Shortly after it was announced that Jones-Cormier would be moved back to 2015, Alexander Gustafsson asked to take back his championship opportunity. Cormier replaced Gustafsson after the Swede was injured in training.

Last year, Gustafsson lost to Jones via decision, but was promised a rematch if he could defeat Jimi Manuwa. He did, and Jones defended his title vs. Glover Teixeira. “DC,” though, doesn’t plan on surrendering his shot.
