Just a day after it was announced that Jon Jones would defend his light-heavyweight title against Glover Teixeira in the main event of UFC 170, the fight is now off.

Dana White spoke to the media two days before UFC 167 and told them that Jones was off the card. However, the reason for withdrawing remains uncertain. White also revealed that Jones isn’t injured, adding another element of mystery to an already strange situation.

No word yet on if Glover Teixeira will remain on the card or if he will wait for an eventual title shot.

UFC 170 will take place as planned on February 22nd at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
