UFC 197: Jones vs. Saint Preux is a mixed marital arts event will be held on April 23, 2016 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The UFC hoped to host this event at Madison Square Garden in New York City, which would have made it the first event in the state of New York since its MMA ban, but that denied by a federal court judge.
Originally, the event was expected to be headlined by a UFC Light Heavyweight Championship rematch between current champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones, but Jones has since been stripped of his former title and suspended indefinitely after he was charged with a hit-and-run and pled guilty. Since Jones’ March 31 release, the bout has planned to continue as scheduled, however, Cormier was recently injured and has since been replaced by Ovince Saint Preux, making this an interim title fight.
