UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira fight card

Steve Snowden

A look at next week's UFC 172 fight card in Baltimore, which features two massive light heavyweight fights, including Jon Jones' latest defense of his title.

Four UFC events in 15 days? No problem.

For the first time in its history the UFC is off to Baltimore, where Jon Jones once again puts his light heavyweight belt on the line, this time against Glover Teixeira. The winner is expected to face Alexander Gustafsson, who Jones fought in an epic battle last September.

This card also marks the return of Anthony Johnson. Once a welterweight, "Rumble" meets Phil Davis in the co-main event following a strong run in World Series of Fighting. Either Davis gets another big win in his cap or Johnson adds himself to the fairly thin list of contenders at 205 lbs. Luke Rockhold also returns to action against Tim Boetsch in a re-scheduled fight from UFC 166.
