August 12 Observer BREAKING NEWS audio: Jon Jones out of UFC 178 plus Kevin Steen in NXT; Raw rating

On this Tuesday, August, 12th, we have a special edition of Wrestling Observer Radio: BREAKING NEWS EDITION with Dave Meltzer and Mike Sempervive talking the unfortunate training injury to UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones which required him to postpone his grudge match against Daniel Cormier to January 3rd, 2015.

We take a look at what it means for the momentum of their eventual encounter, the effects it may have on other shows and the fighters surrounding it (especially the big four PPV shows from November to January), Johnson-Caraiso, McGregor, Rousey, Carano, Coenen, and much more. We also briefly touch on the official announcement by WWE that Kevin Steen has joined NXT, as well as Hulk Hogan's birthday ratings present.
