Video: Jon Jones and Ovince Saint Preux preview interim title fight at UFC 197 on April 23

Before Jon Jones and Ovince Saint Preux mix it up at next weekend's (Sat., April 23, 2016) UFC 197 pay-per-view (PPV) event, the talented Light Heavyweight's --  who will be vying for the interim division strap -- conducted a joint satellite interview during the UFC on FOX 19 telecast to preview their bout.

The fight came to be after division kingpin Daniel Cormier was forced out with a knee injury. As a result, "OSP" stepped in on short notice to face the toughest challenge of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career.

A move "Bones" says he's grateful for. As is Saint Preux, as a win over the pound-for-pound great will do wonders for his career.

The winner will get a chance to unify the title against "DC" later this year. And if all goes as planned for Jon, he may get the chance to reclaim the title in his home state of New York in November.
