Let April 23rd be known as the return. Jon Jones, the last vestige of pure greatness in the MMA landscape, returns from his indefinite suspension due to his well documented legal and criminal battles. Think about it. In the time Jones was away, the sport saw Conor choked out by Nate, Aldo flatlined by Conor, Ronda head-kicked into oblivion by Holms, who herself would go out to Miesha's choke. Anderson's tumble would continue against Bisping, and even the spider killer himself, Chris Weidman would drop his belt to Luke Rockhold. With the exception of the other champion in the co-main event slot, Mighty Mouse, our picture of the invincibles in the UFC have dropped like flies. With all due respect to one Mr. OSP, the world awaits what Jon Jones brings to the table in his return.
Jon Jones v. Ovince Saint Preux (Interim Light Heavyweight Championship)
Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson (c) v. Henry Cejudo (Flyweight Championship)
Anthony "Showtime" Pettis v. Edson "Spinnin Sh*t" Barboza
Robert "Hand down, Man down" Whittaker v. Rafael Natal
Prospect battle! It's Yair of the TUF Latin America vs Andre of the TJ Dillashaw hate crew. Andre has had a much more up and down career in the UFC so far having dropped some fights along the way. But coming out of Team Alpha Male, you can never write him off because he will always be a tough out. Yair just has a different element about him as a prospect. Whether I'm just being fooled by the flashy kicks and spinning attacks, it still means something that he can throw them with legit intent. With an opening main card slot, this is a great chance for Yair to introduce himself to the masses. Yair by decision.
Yair: Kid P, Gooms, Doc Law
Andre: DJ Mark
