Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will attempt to restore order to the light heavyweight division with the return of Jon Jones, who wants to reclaim the 205-pound title that was stripped from his waist back in 2015. In the UFC 197 five-round championship co-main event, flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson will face his toughest test to date in Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo.
