There goes UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones (pictured) again, trying to duck another fight – so say Jones’ legion of haters.

First Jones was desperately attempting to avoid a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson by trying to play matchmaker, now he’s intentionally getting cut in training to try to evade a grudge match with Daniel Cormier – so say Jones’ legion of haters.

On Thursday, Jones released a video on his official Instagram account (hurry up and watch it before he deletes another post) showing a gruesome gash he suffered on his right eyebrow.

Sorry, “Bones.” You’ll have to try a lot harder than that to dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge a UFC 178 showdown with Cormier. UFC president Dana White told LA Times reporter Lance Pugmire that the laceration Jones obtained is “far enough away from the fight, that he’ll be OK” to keep his September 27 appointment.

UFC 178 goes down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Here’s the video Jones posted Thursday afternoon:
