The Mixed Martial Arts world was in a state of shock last night as it was revealed that Jon Jones had been pulled from the main event of UFC 200.

Jones failed a USADA drugs test taken last month and with not enough time between now and the fight for a full review to happen, the UFC instead took the option to remove Jones from the fight and deal with it afterwards.

This is obviously huge news and has seen Jones become one of the biggest trending topics in the world. As you can imagine, UFC stars have come out in droves to have their say about the shock news that is dominating headlines.

"I feel for ya," Dan Henderson said to Daniel Cormier. "I know it feels to have your opponent get pulled 3 days before the fight due to being dishonorable. #norespect"

Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh also got a dig in at the UFC, moving McGregor off the card because of a few press conferences in favour of a fight that isn't now going ahead.

Unsurprisingly, there were several fighters taking shots at Jon Jones for failing the test. 

Then there was Gegard Mousasi and Michael Bisping, who both put their hats in the ring to take over from Jones in the light heavyweight title match. A brave tactic, let's see if it works for either of them.

We'll leave the final words to Lauren Murphy, who summed it up perfectly. Jon Jones messed up badly and hopefully he never lives this down.
