When Cormier dropped out of UFC 197, we needed a replacement…and fast. Thankfully, Ovince Saint Preux came in last minute and stepped up to fight the former light heavyweight champ Jon Jones for the interim belt. This doesn’t give Saint Preux the best odds, but he still has some qualities that make him absolutely dangerous.

UFC® 197 Predictions: Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones

Posted by Victoria Barnett on Mar 14, 2016 8:00:00 AM

Enter Jon “Bones” Jones. If you’ve paid attention over the past few years, you’ve seen his rise with his UFC success and his fall with his personal struggles. Many of us thought we had seen the end of Jones after his last incident in 2015, which caused him to be stripped of the title. He was supposed to be suspended indefinitely. Well, here we are. Isn’t it funny how things change?

Jones is back and Daniel Cormier gets to be his first victim upon his return. This is like the rematch of all rematches. Cormier will try to avenge his loss, and Jones will attempt to earn his belt back. The king is bigger, meaner and more driven than ever before – he’s ready to dominate the UFC once again. But Cormier won’t let him off easy; he’s ready to shut everyone up once and for all.
