CM Punk Responds To Jon Jones And UFC 151 Cancellation, Another WWE Title Holder At NXT Tonight
- As noted earlier, UFC president Dana White announced today that Dan Henderson has been forced to withdraw from his title fight with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones at UFC 151 next weekend, and that the entire event has been cancelled. Jones was offered the chance to face Chael Sonnen in Henderson's stead, but declined.

CM Punk has been re-tweeting messages critical of Jones on his Twitter today and wrote, "Ok keyboard kids. Tell me what I do is fake, but at least I have heart. The irony is tangible. Who's phony now??"

Punk later wrote, "'Man up!'--the Briscoes. Bet ya Sun Tzu said that too," in reference to a message Jones posted yesterday quoting Sun Tzu.

When someone remarked to Punk that Jones would "kick his phony ass," Punk replied, "Yup. But I'd fight him. Come to @wwenxt @FullSail !! Big show!"

- As noted earlier, WWE will tape three more episodes of NXT tonight from Full Sail University in Florida. CM Punk is confirmed to be at tonight's show. WWE U.S. Champion Antonio Cesaro stated on his Twitter that he would be at tonight's taping as well.

"The champion of America is on the way to @FullSail @WWENXT #USChampion," Cesaro wrote.
