Saturday afternoon UFC President Dana White appeared on SportsCenter via telephone to announce that Ovince Saint Preux would be stepping in on short notice to fight Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 197 for the interim UFC light heavyweight championship.

In the moments after the announcement was made official, Jon Jones released a brief statement through his website,

“On April 23rd I will be fighting Ovince St. Preux in Las Vegas. Happy he was able to accept the fight on such short notice.”

With the new main event for UFC 197 being Jones vs. Saint Preux, who do you think leaves with the interim UFC light heavyweight championship?
