Unfortunately, Jon Jones will not be defending his title at UFC 133, according to the Canadian Press.   Jones has apparently suffered a torn ligament in his hand that has forced him to pull out of his main event against Rashad Evans.

Phil Davis will step into Jones' spot on the main card in what should be a #1 contender matchup.  Davis is 9-0 in his career and most recently defeated Antonio Rogerio Nogueira by decision.

Rashad Evans has not fought since May 2010.  Injuries to Shogun Rua and then to himself kept Evans from title shots.  Now an injury to UFC…

im surprised they pulled in phil davis to step up to the challenge, but if this fight happens this is a big chance for phil davis to step in to serious contendership in the light-heavyweight division. im not too sure if hes ready to fight a guy in his prime as evans is, but look forward to seeing the fight either way.

My way of joking is to tell the truth. That's the funniest joke in the world.

Wow thumb injury….wow, I've seen owen carr break his thumb a week before he fought, and learned of possible eye injury. Gameplan? Use jab and knees, I'm sure I could rip his thumb right off…..he would still fight.

I am not too thrilled to see Davis and Evans fight. It will be interesting to see who the better MMA wrestler is or if they nullify each other and start swinging.
