The light heavyweight title is now officially set to be contested by knockout artists Glover Teixeira at UFC 170 on February 22, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV. Champ Jon Jones has agreed to defend the belt on that date, as the UFC announces the official location of The Mandalay Bay Events Center for UFC 170.
Originally targeted for UFC 169 on Feb. 1, White would detract the statements released by the UFC personnel, saying the event was not official. The two men headlining will come in with astounding records. The champ steps forward with a 19-1 record, with one disqualification and the top contender standing with a 22-2 record, following a recent first round KO of Ryan Bader.
