Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira Now Happening at UFC 171

Jon Jones is not only the UFC’s Light Heavyweight Champion but quite a peculiar figure in sports right now, as Jon Jones is young, talented but also gets viewed as being “fake” or “off” by fans. It’s hard to disagree, really, when Jon Jones has had his fight with Glover Teixeira rescheduled due to “nagging injuries” — or Jon Jones just wanting to have the holiday season off — something that a lot of other fighters won’t be able to do. Whatever, Jon Jones is Jon Jones and he gets what he wants from the UFC right now.

Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira is the fight we’ve all known about for a while now and now it has been officially announced [again], this time taking place at UFC 171 on March 15th in Dallas. Somehow it seems fitting to have Jon Jones fight in Dallas.
