On Saturday, April 26, the UFC hosted UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore.

In the night’s main event, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones looked for his seventh title defense as he took on hard-charging Brazilian Glover Teixeira. The 26-year-old Jones had been out of action since his 25-minute war against Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 in September. Jones retained his belt with a controversial decision win. For Teixeira, the fight marked a chance to extend his gaudy 20-fight winning streak that includes 18 stoppages.

The co-main event also took place in the 205-pound division as Phil Davis and Anthony “Rumble” Johnson looked to put themselves in title contention with a win. Davis extended his record to 12-1 (with one no-contest) by eking out a decision over former champion Lyoto Machida in August. Johnson made his return to the promotion after stringing together six straight wins outside the Octagon. The 30-year-old was released from the promotion following UFC 142 for missing weight for the third time with the promotion.

Also on the pay-per-view main card, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold met Tim Boetsch, hard-nosed lightweight Jim Miller locked horns with Yancy Medeiros, and talented featherweights Andre Fili and Max Holloway faced off.

The action kicked off Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET with one fight streaming on the promotion’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass. Four additional bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card beginning at 10 p.m. ET live on pay-per-view.
