UFC 172: Jones vs Teixeira Preview

April 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

The UFC rolls into Baltimore, Maryland tonight for UFC 172; a card that will feature Jon Jones defending his title against Glover Teixera.  Jones is coming off a fight that for the first time in his career he looked human when he defended against Alexander Gustafsson.  For the first time in his career he wasn’t able to come in and dominate his opponent and now that the aura of invincibility has been stripped away people want to see what is next for Jones.  While it may sound like a strange thing to say, I think him being taken to the limit in his last fight was great for the stock of [...]

The UFC returns to Abu Dhabi for the latest in their Fight Pass cards.  The card is headlined by a pair of heavyweights looking to rebound and get back into the win column.  On one side you have Roy Nelson who looks to break free of a two fight skid in which he lost both bouts via decision.  Nogueira is looking to bounce back from a 2013 submission loss to Fabricio Werdum.  It is an interesting position both men find themselves in en route to making one final title run in their stories careers.  Both men are 37 and more than likely only have one more chance at making a true run for the [...]
