Jon Jones makes his return to the Octagon on April 23 when he takes on Daniel Cormier for the light heavy-weight title.

Cormier won the vacated title after Jones was involved in a very public hit and run incident, in which he drove through a red light and hit another car driven by a pregnant woman.

The pair previously had fought for the title, with Cormier coming up short in the unanimous decision loss in January 2015.

Ahead of their main event bout at the MGM Grand, the UFC have released to bite-sized promos for the event.

The lead up to the fight has been unsavoury at points, and the pair have been involved in some verbal sparring previous to this.
