Title fight set to headline Dallas cardů
The UFC announced plans for the planned light heavyweight title bout between champion Jon Jones and top contender Glover Teixeira being set for UFC 171. The fight card is going to be held on March 15 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
There were previously two false start announcements for the title fight. It was originally announced for UFC's Super Bowl weekend card on February 1 at UFC 169, and then later on at UFC 170 later in the month.
Jones looks to extend his record-breaking title run to seven title defense, and Teixeira looks to capture his first UFC title.
