It’s not Jon Jones-Daniel Cormier 2, but UFC 197 still has plenty to offer this Saturday night.
In the main event, Jones returns from a year-long hiatus to face Ovince Saint Preux for the interim light heavyweight title live on pay-per-view. He was slated to meet Cormier before an injury knocked the reigning UFC champion out.
Also, Henry Cejudo challenges Demetrious Johnson for the flyweight belt in the co-main event, while Anthony Pettis battles Edson Barboza and Rafael Natal faces Robert Whittaker from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
