Video: Jon Jones Extends Open Challenge To Keep UFC 197 Main Event Alive

Jon Jones may have appeared to be the “bad guy” heading into the original UFC 197 main event, but he is certainly looking more and more like the “good guy” as we sit and wait to find out if we have a new UFC 197 main event.

“Bones” Jones took to his official Instagram page on Saturday afternoon to post a video of himself extending an open challenge to keep the UFC 197 main event alive.

Jones stated the following in the video, which you can watch below:

“Hey, y’all know I’m not into taking last-minute fights. It’s not the way me and my trainers do things. But this last year has been real crazy, and I feel like I owe my fans so much. So, UFC, whether you’ve got a heavyweight, light heavyweight, it doesn’t matter. Let’s keep this main event going. Send them my way.”

UFC 197 takes place on Saturday, April 23, 2016 from Las Vegas, Nevada.

I figured this would put a few smiles on some faces today @UFC
