Jon Jones Receives Date For Next Title Fight: UFC 171 This March

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will return to action this March, facing Glover Teixeira at UFC 171.

The fight was announced on UFC Tonight Wednesday for the March 15 card from Dallas and the American Airlines Center.

Jones (19-1) is coming off a decision win over Alexander Gustafsson. He suffered some minor injuries in the bout, adding to ones from his previous fight in 2013. That forced “Bones” to postpone the bout with the Brazilian.

Teixeira (22-2) has won all five of his UFC fights, including four via stoppage. He defeated Ryan Bader this past September.
