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.

Jon “Bones” Jones caught a break at court on March 23 following a traffic stop where he did not have his registration or insurance on his person. “Bones” did, in fact, have the documentation proving he was covered and registered when he arrived to the court room. In light of this discovery, the judge deferred Jones’ sentence, allowing him to fight in UFC 197. [source: mmamania and bloodyelbow]

UFC 197: Cormier vs Jones 2 Breakdown
The UFC 197 event is expected to be headlined by a UFC Light Heavyweight Championship rematch between current champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones. The two fighters met previously at UFC 182 in January 2015 with Jones defending his title via unanimous decision. 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.
A UFC Flyweight Championship bout between current champion Demetrious Johnson and 2008 Olympic gold medalist in freestyle wrestling Henry Cejudo is expected to co-headline the event.
