UFC Champion Jon Jones knew that Glover Teixeira would be his next opponent, but the timeline for his next bout was still undetermined, that was until today:

The next bout for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has an official date -- again -- as "Bones" will look to extend his record-setting title defense streak against Brazilian powerhouse Glover Teixeira on Saturday, February 22 in Las Vegas.

The Jones-Teixeira bout was originally announced as the headliner for the UFC 169 Super Bowl weekend card in Newark, NJ, but that event will now be topped by two title fights: Dominick Cruz vs. Renan Barao to unify the bantamweight title and Jose Aldo vs. Ricardo Lamas at featherweight.

The Superbowl card is Cruz/Barao and Aldo/Lamas? No offense but that's not a "super" card.

Exactly what was said about Gus.

Anyway, I think it's awesome that Jones fights so often. I hope he keeps it up and maybe tests the waters at HW if he keeps winning. Phone Post 3.0

Wish the UFC was having Gus/Cormier as the co-main event.  Would be a great build-up for the winner and would really legitimize the next contender.    They basically just pushed Glover throught without having to fight any top guys and looks like they're doing it again for the next contender.

So why wasnt this on the SB card then?  I thought Jones wanted more time?  You mean he just wanted 3 more weeks? 

Makes no sense at all why this was taken off the SB card.  And again with 2 PPV in a month?  UFC needs to fucking learn they can do that,  this is a mistake.

How about one PPV in Feb with the SB card, Jones/Glover with Aldo/Lamas under it and then move Cruz/Barao to Fox in Jan?

Seems to me that should have been the plan all along.  Then maybe do an FS1 card end of Feb.  2 PPV a month needs to stop.

Ha. You call having two title fights getting screwed? Try being a Winnipeg fan where they paid way more for seats than you guys have to. Cruz/Barao is one of the most interesting possible fights in the UFC right now(although I fully admit I'd be more excited for it if I knew Cruz was 100%) Aldo in a co-main event? Very few cards that quality of a fighter defending a title in the co-main, in this day and age.

Why is Cruz/Barao the main? They always put the heavier weight title fight last.

It should be a good night of fights though, Reem vs Mir is on it too.
