UFC 197 (PPV): Jon "Bones" Jones VS. Ovince Saint Preux

  • Buffalo Wild Wings 74-76 Church Street New Haven, CT, 06510 United States (map)

Saturday, April 23rd was supposed to be Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 2, but Cormier's leg injury forced him to withdraw from a scheduled fight for the first time in his career. Jones will instead make his much-anticipated return to the Octagon against Ovince Saint Preux, and while Cormier's injury isn't serious, the UFC has made this for the interim LHW title.

In the co-main event, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson goes toe-to-toe with undefeated Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo. Also on the main card, Edson Barboza fights Anthony Pettis in a very intriguing and highly important lightweight contest, middleweight contender Robert Whittaker battles Rafael Natal, and TUF Latin America winner Yair Rodriguez takes on fellow featherweight prospect Andre Fili.—BloodyElbow
