Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira Set To Fight At March Event, Not UFC 169

After what appears to be a minor mishap by a over-eager UFC PR team, the news that Jon Jones will defend his light-heavyweight title against Glover Teixeira is in fact false.

UFC president Dana White revealed today that it was in fact a mistake that his PR team announced the bout for that date and venue:
“Jones vs. Teixeira is not happening on Super Bowl [weekend],” White said. “Our people f**ked up and put that out when they shouldn’t have put that out, because that was never, ever even a done deal. Our P.R. team jumped the gun on that one. It’s not that [Jones] did or didn’t want it. It didn’t matter one way or the other with him. It was just something that didn’t work out.”
