Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welcomes Jon Jones back to the Octagon with this Saturday night’s (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 — 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” later this year.
In the UFC 197 co-main event, longtime UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson defends his 125-pound title against Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo, while Anthony Pettis and Edson Barboza collide in a lightweight dream bout.
And that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
