Jon Jones is the betting favorite to become the interim Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion when he faces off against Ovince Saint Preux at UFC 197 on April 23, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The talented fighter -- who recently claimed everyone in the division was ducking him -- jumped at the chance to fill in on three weeks notice against the pound-for-pound great. "OSP" is fresh off a unanimous decision victory over Rafael Cavalcante just last month.
Now, he'll look to make the most at the unexpected opportunity, as a win will not only give him an interim strap, but the right to face Cormier in a title unification match down the road.
