The UFC announced today the location for UFC 172, and it looks like the number one MMA promotion in the world is going to touch down in “Charm City” – i.e. Baltimore, M.D. The date of the event is April 26, and the announced headlining bout will see light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones defend his belt against Brazilian beast Glover Teixeira.
The venue will be the Baltimore Arena, which can seat 14,000 spectators depending upon the seating configuration.
Other than the main event, no other bouts have been announced or are rumored.
Yes, Baltimore is where the critically-acclaimed TV show “The Wire” was filmed, so if you go, make sure you pack heat.
