The UFC fighting organization is the most popular MMA promotion in the world. The company has grown into a $1 billion corporation, and the UFC regularly hosts pay-per-view events. The UFC was once never seen on cable TV, but now, the company can be seen daily. Some people feel that the UFC has oversaturated Cable television, but it appears to be okay with the hardcore fans of the company like educator Kevin Seawright. However, the UFC’s growth has made the company more visible to ordinary people.
Recently, the UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was involved in a hit-and-run car accident. Jones slammed his vehicle into a pregnant woman, and he broke her arm. Jon Jones then fled the scene, and he was later detained by Albuquerque police. The UFC’s image has taken a severe blow, and the upcoming pay-per-view event has been all but destroyed.
UFC 187 Takes place on May 23, 2015, and Jon Jones was supposed to be defending his title against Anthony Johnson. However, Jon has been removed from the event, and he has been replaced by Daniel Cormier. Also, the UFC light heavyweight championship has been stripped from Jones. The pay-per-view card was recently dealt another fatal blow. Donald Cerrone’s opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov will not be competing at the event. It is believed that Nurmagomedov suffered a debilitating knee injury, and will not be able to compete at UFC 187. The president of the UFC is probably ballistic, but there is nothing he can do about the situation. For more information on this story, visitYahoo! Sports.
