Jones will be trying to add Teixeira to a list of fallen foes that includes the likes of Vitor Belfort, Rashad Evans, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Chael Sonnen and Alexander Gustafsson. Teixeira is unbeaten since debuting in the UFC.
The preview also highlights other main card bouts including Phil Davis vs. Anthony Johnson, which takes place in the 205-pound division.
- Ronda Rousey's next title defense will not come against Gina Carano or Cris Cyborg, but a member of the current UFC roster. Rousey will defend her bantamweight title against Alexis Davis at UFC 175.
UFC president Dana White made the announcement recently, adding the female title fight to the July card that also features Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida for the middleweight belt.
Rousey (9-0) stopped Sara McMann earlier this year, scoring her first non-armbar victory since debuting in MMA. Davis (16-5) has won all three of her Octagon appearances, topping Jessica Eye in February to secure her status as a contender.
- With no MMA going down on Saturday, boxing took center stage, as Manny Pacquiao earned a decision victory over Timothy Bradley on pay-per-view. Pacquiao took the 12-round fight on all three scorecards, earning back the WBO welterweight title.
In 2012, Bradley defeated Pacquiao via split decision. "Pacman," one of the most recognizable faces in boxing, improved to 56-5-2 with the win, while handing Bradley (31-1) his first career loss in the process.
Pacquiao has now won two straight since a pair of 2012 losses to Juan Manuel Marquez and Bradley. He is also the current WBO international welterweight champion.
