UUFC 172: Jones vs Teixeira Live Odds

UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on April 26, 2014 at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

A Light Heavyweight Championship bout between the current champion Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira, briefly linked as the event headliner at UFC 169, UFC 170 and UFC 171 served as the main event.

In the main event of UFC 172, Jon Jones (20-1) successfully defended his Light Heavyweight title against challenger Glover Teixeira (22-3). Jones earned his 14th victory inside the the Octagon, with only one loss since coming to the promotion in 2008. The loss ended a 20-fight undefeated streak for Glover, five of which came in the UFC.

Jon Jones vs Glover Teixeira:

Round 5: Jones hits an immediate takedown and then pins Teixeira on the cage when he stands. Teixeira is dripping blood all over Jones’ back in the clinch from a deep cut along his right eyebrow. Nevertheless, Teixeira creates a little space and blasts Jones with a huge uppercut, then a left hook. Jones takes the shots and steps back in to dislodge Teixeira’s mouthpiece with another combination. Jones puts his hand on top of Teixeira’s head, and Teixeira answers with a big right hand around the outside.

Another right lands for Teixeira, so Jones ducks down and then comes back up with an almost 6-to-12 elbow. Halfway through the final round, Teixeira decks the champ with another big uppercut, and now Jones takes a moment to lean on Teixeira in the clinch. Teixeira breaks out, eats a left and just dodges a leaping knee. Ninety seconds left now and Teixeira is loading up for a homerun shot, but his punches are disrupted by Jones’ feints and clinch. Jones buries his head in his own arms to defend against Teixeira’s only offense, power punches. Jones does a little sprint away and gets a shrug from Teixeira, who keeps hunting for a knockout to the final horn.
