Jones vs. Glover set for UFC 172 in Baltimore

 

Originally announced for UFC 171, Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira will now take place at UFC 172, and today it was announced the event will take place in Baltimore, MD:

Ultimate Fighting Championship will make its Baltimore debut in April with a card headlined by light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

The show, scheduled for April 26 at Baltimore Arena, is expected to be one of the mixed-martial-arts promotion’s biggest pay-per-view events in the first half of the year.

Jones is arguably UFC’s most established star and has ties to the area through his brother Arthur, who just completed his fourth season as a defensive end for the Ravens.

“I think it’s going to be phenomenal,” Jones said in a phone interview Friday. “I feel I already have a family there through the Ravens fans.”

Just got back from Baltimore and went to Thames Street Oyster House.  Love the area and it was great food. Timex Social Club said... how do rumors get started, they're started by the jealous people and they get mad seeing something they had and somebody else is holding.

I find it odd that there are several Zuffa employees that have posted on this thread but this post has not been addressed. This good man deserves an answer.Is it true that Jones/Glover is going to be moved to 173, 174, 175 and ultimately 176? I hope you at least tell him before tickets go on sale. If it's moved hopefully a #1 contender's match can take its place as the main event.
