Did Jon Jones Just Cause the End of the World?

If the following numbered UFC is #152 (#151 having never happened) then is UFC 200 really just UFC 199? If that's the case, will UFC 200 be a milestone event on par with UFC 100, or will fans reject it as the true UFC 200 given that UFC 201 will now be the true two hundredth event? Remember how the year 2000 wasn't the real millennium because of Jesus' birthday or something--will it be like that?

And much like Y2K, will this numbering paradox cause the internet (31% of which is MMA related) to shut down when the hundreds place of numbered events moves to a 2 while the true number of events is still a 1? Will this glitch cause a chain reaction eventually triggering drones over the Middle East to bomb allied nations indiscriminately? If so, will the delicate balance of force, threat, and diplomacy tip to the point of retaliation from other nations? Nuclear retaliation?

While the final outcome of this scenario is not imminent, it's clearly very likely. It is my hope that we will not idly stand by while this scenario is free to play out, but that we will lift our voices in one accord to blame Jon Jones now for the end of the world. After all, by the time it actually happens it will be too late to talk about it on the internet.
