That’s right, boys and girls, it’s time for another edition of the Downes Side! I know a lot of you have been worried, but fear not, the Nostradamus of MMA has no plans to leave you anytime soon. In fact, I even show up to events that they expressly ask me not to attend.
This weekend, you’re all invited to witness UFC 197 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main event of the evening puts the interim light heavyweight title on the line as Jon Jones returns to the octagon against Ovince Saint Preux. In the co-main event, Demetrious Johnson seeks to remain the only flyweight champion in UFC history as he faces off against Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler Henry Cejudo.
Retire to the study as I educate you. It’s fight time!
