With last night’s UFC on FOX 19 from Tampa, Florida, in the books, the focus of the MMA world will immediately shift to next weekend’s awaited UFC 197 pay-per-view (PPV) event on April 23 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the main event, legendary former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will finally make his long-awaited return from a lengthy legal battle against impromptu challenger Ovince.
