UFC 172:Jones vs. Teixeira Betting Odds

Information
Event Ultimate Fighting Championship 172
Date March 15, 2014
Venue American Airlines Center
City Dallas, Texas

This will be Jon Jones' next title defense, finally after several reschedules and relocations the UFC officials confirmed that the fight will take place on April 26 as the main event of UFC 172 at Baltimore Arena in Maryland.

Jones has been so far a fighter that has defeated very well known fighters with some sort of ease, although he ran in to some problems when fighting Alexander Gustafsson in UFC 165 he was able to get a close but none the less win by unanimous decision; Jones right now has 10 straight wins, with 6 title defenses and 8 wins inside distance(Submission / TKO).

Going against Jones is the Brazilian Glover Teixeira, he is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt and gained the title shot after 5 outstanding performances in the UFC octagon; fun fact about Teixeira is that it has been over 9 years since his was last defeated. This seems to be a great match for the champ and it will help demonstrate if Glover is really in the level of the UFC's top 205 pound division fighters.

On the Co-main event the return of Anthony Johnson to the UFC and to the Light Heavyweight division against Phil Davis, the fight will be striking against wrestling.

Also part of the main card of UFC 172 Luke Rockhold and Bobby Green.
