Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welcomes Jon Jones (21-1) back to the Octagon with tonight’s (Sat., April 23, 2016) UFC 197: “Jones vs. Saint Preux” pay-per-view (PPV) fight card, which takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Waiting for him will be light heavyweight replacement Ovince Saint Preux (19-7) — filling in for the injured Daniel Cormier — in the five-round headliner. The winner emerges as interim 205-pound titleholder and the next man to face “DC” to unify the straps later this year.
