Jones vs. Glover to now headline UFC 172


 With today's announcement that Johny Hendricks will fight Robbie Lawler at UFC 171, a title fight between Jon Jones and Glover Texiera will now move to UFC 172:

After initially saying the fight would remain a part of UFC 171 despite the recent booking of a Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler title fight, UFC President Dana White later clarified Jones vs. Teixeira instead will headline UFC 172.

A date, as well as a location and venue, haven’t been finalized for the pay-per-view card, which is expected to take place in late March or early April.

This is now the fourth different booking for Jones vs. Teixeira.

I'll still be going, but damn it is a huge blue ball. I think Hendricks will hold for awhile, but would've been great to see Jones. And yeah., we got one of our worst ever ice storms last week, and we don't know how to deal with that kind of weather in Texas, lol. Thanks man!

Expect Glover or Jones to get injured.That fight isn't going to happen for whatever reason, it's becoming obvious.

I wouldn't call it a great card at this point. If they can get another good fight or two on there it could be.
