    Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira set for April 26 at UFC 172 in Baltimore

    Jones (19-1 MMA, 13-1 UFC) will meet Glover Teixeira (22-2 MMA, 5-0 UFC) at UFC 172 on April 26 at Baltimore Arena in Maryland. The pay-per-view event will be the UFC’s first visit to the city and state.

    UFC officials made the announcement on Friday, citing an original report from the Baltimore Sun.

    The fight has had several dates and locations, but now finally has a firm one locked in. The show originally was announced for the UFC 169 main event next month on Super Bowl weekend. Then it moved to UFC 170 in Las Vegas, three weeks later. Then it found a spot at the top of the bill of UFC 171 in March in Dallas. But Johny Hendricks-Robbie Lawler took that spot, pushing Jones-Teixeira to later in the spring.

    A month ago, Jones’ brother, Baltimore Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones, tweeted that he was excited his brother would be fighting in Baltimore on April 26. But that date remained merely a rumor until Friday’s official announcement.

    Gotta love how Texeira wasn't 'ready' yet but when they were talking about a Gus rematch, Texeira definitely looked like he was ready lol

    Belfort was a stronger test for Jones than Glover will be.

    Te Huna was getting off faster on the feet against Glover, Bader almost knocked him out, and that disgusting Rampage fight all just paint a very ugly picture for this fight. Sure he can hurt Jones but that's it. He's too slow, lacks cardio, and those tds in the Rampage fight were just atrocious.

    Nope, Glover beats Jones just like he has everyone else.

    That did Machida a whole lot of good.

    It's not like it was Machida's striking that cost him the fight. It was pretty even on the fight until Jones got the takedown and unleashed some nasty elbows.
