UPDATE!
UFC announced today that UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been forced off the UFC 197 card due to an injury to the interosseous membrane in his left leg. As a result, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will fight No. 6 Ovince Saint Preux for the interim championship in the main event of UFC 197 on Saturday, April 23 in Las Vegas.

This event, which is co-headlined by the UFC flyweight championship bout between Demetrious Johnson and Henry Cejudo, will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Returning from a 15-month layoff, Jones - who holds the record for most successful title defenses in UFC light heavyweight history - will be looking to wear the crown once more when he faces former University of Tennessee football player Saint Preux, whose recent Octagon efforts have seen him win three of his last four bouts, with knockouts of Shogun Rua and Patrick Cummins, and a Fight of the Night battle against Glover Teixeira.
Daniel Cormier won and has successfully defended the light heavyweight belt since Jon Jones' absence in the UFC. On April 24 at UFC 197, Cormier tries to avenge his loss while Jones attempts to earn his belt back. Don't miss the history in the making, come in early to secure your seat.
