FIGHT UPDATE: Jon Jones defeated Ovince Saint Preux via Unanimous Decision

The event was expected to be headlined by a UFC Light Heavyweight Championship rematch between current champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones. The pairing met previously at UFC 182 in January 2015 with Jones defending his title via unanimous decision.[4] Subsequent to that victory, Jones was stripped of the title and suspended indefinitely from the UFC in connection with a hit-and-run incident that he was involved in. Cormier replaced him and went on to defeat Anthony Johnson at UFC 187 to win the vacant title.

The UFC 197 takes place Saturday night from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, headlined by Jon Jones' return to UFC competition after a 15 month hiatus due to a hit and run arrest in New Mexico. Jones was scheduled to return against UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier but Cormier had to pull out due to injury and Jones will now face Ovince St. Preux in what UFC has made an interim title bout. In the co-main event, dominant UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson defends his title against undefeated Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo.

It was Kevin Lee edged out a unanimous decision win over Efrain Escudero. It wasn't as impressive of a win as the sizeable favorite Lee likely hoped for. Marcos Rogerio de Lima dominated Clint Hester and finished Hester with an arm triangle submission in the first round. De Lima was in control from beginning to end and Hester could find himself cut by the UFC after his third straight loss. Finally, Walt Harris picked up his first UFC victory with a first round TKO over promotional newcomer Cody East. The stoppage from the referee came at a strange time but East was badly hurt.
