Due to all the coverage and speculation regarding Conor McGregor’s withdrawal from UFC 200, UFC 197 has kind of gotten lost in the mix huh? Which says a ton about how big of a deal McGregor is, when you consider Saturday’s card will feature the #1 and #2 ranked, best pound-for-pound fighters.
Yes, those men are Mr. Jon Jones and Mr. Demterious Johnson, who will throw hands with Ovince Saint Preux and Henry Cejudo respectively. Although both the #1 ranked Jones, and the #2 positioned Johnson are expected to win, both of those fights have the potential to be pretty memorable.
If for some bizarre reason you’re not jazzed about the bouts, perhaps watching the media day faceoffs will change your mind?
UFC 197 will go down in Las Vegas, Nevada.
