UFC 197 weigh-ins will take place today LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada beginning at 7pm EST/4pm PST.

In the main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion and the number one pound-for-pound fighter on planet, Jon Jones returns to the octagon after more than a year lay off as he battles Ovince Saint Preux for the interim title.

Saint Preux joined the card several weeks ago after current champion, Daniel Cormier dropped out due to an injury.  Since he could not defend, Saint Preux stepped up and the bout is now for the interim title.

In the co-main event, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson defends against Henry Cejudo.

The UFC 197 main card will be on pay-per-view tomorrow night beginning at 10 pm EST with preliminary bouts airing on FS1 at 8pm EST.
