Jon Jones-Glover Teixeira No Longer Planned UFC 169 Main Event

Jon Jones-Glover Teixeira No Longer Planned UFC 169 Main Event

It looks like UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones won’t be competing on Super Bowl weekend after all.

UFC president Dana White informed members of the media recently that the planned Jones-Glover Teixeira bout is still on, just not for February.

“That was never, ever a done deal,” White said during a conference call. “That’s going to be later. That was never a done deal. Our (public relations) people put it out, and they shouldn’t have.”

So, we will have to wait until March it sounds like to see Jones-Teixeira. White also stated that plans are in place for Alexander Gustafsson to fight in early 2014, with the UFC looking to pair Jones and Gustafsson up again if they both win.
