UFC 197 results, recap, and link wrap up: Jon Jones is back, Demetrious Johnson is here to stay

How great is Jon Jones?

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) interim light heavyweight champion came off the bench after 15 months of inactivity and convincingly beat a short-notice replacement — ranked No. 6 in the world — in the main event of UFC 197 last Sat. night (April 23, 2016) in Las Vegas, Nevada, and still got shit on for his performance.

Out with Ovince Saint Preux, in with Daniel Cormier.

In the UFC 197 co-main event, Demetrious Johnson defended his title — yet again — against flyweight contender Henry Cejudo, who was unable to tip the scales in his favor despite his status as an Olympic gold medalist. Joining “The Messenger” on the sour sidelines is former UFC champ Anthony Pettis, who dropped his third in a row after getting knocked around by Edson Barboza.
