In an announcement that we all knew was coming from a mile away, the UFC has finally gone ahead and announced Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship in February. Of course, the date and UFC event were unknown until now, but we can now rest easy knowing that February 22nd at UFC 170 will be the date. This will be another stiff test for Champion Jon Jones who just had the fight of his life against Alexander Gustafsson.
Glover Teixeira is very much a new kid on the block, but has some impressive wins in the UFC thus far with a skillset that could give Jon Jones some trouble in the ring this February. So the build up to Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira is officially now now.
