UFC 197 is set to to pop off on April 23, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada and will feature an much-anticipated rematch, as Light Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier defends his title against ex-division king, Jon Jones.
In their first title fight, “Bones” defeated “DC” top retain his 205-pound strap Soon thereafter, “Bones” was stripped of his belt and suspended for a hit-and-run accident
Cormier went on to win the vacant belt by defeating Anthony soon thereafter at UFC 187, though he was met with criticism for claiming to be the real champ without having beaten Jones.
But, in a few short weeks, “DC” will look to prove his naysayers wrong by taking out perhaps the best ever to compete in the division.
In the co-main event scrap, Demetrious Johnson will defend his Flyweight belt for the eighth time against wrestling powerhouse Henry Cejudo. Plus, Anthony Pettis and Edson Barboza will collide in an intriguing Lightweight scrap.
