The Round Up: UFC fight announcements for this week
Aug 16, 2014 at 10:00a ET
Sometimes fight announcements bring good news and other times it's bad because injuries often rob shows of great matchups and this week was no exception after one of the most highly anticipated bouts of 2014 was cancelled.
Jon Jones suffered a torn meniscus in training and ended up in surgery, which forced him out of his scheduled bout against Daniel Cormier at UFC 178. Luckily the injury wasn't severe enough to force the champion to miss any significant amount of time, but it will push back the fight until 2015.
With that title bout off the card, it forced some moving and switching to take place between UFC 177 and UFC 178 so there are a few new looks this week as well as a slew of new matchups announced for upcoming cards.
