UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira

Tonight is the light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira.

This event should actually be the rematch between Alexander Gustafsson and Jon Jones, but Jones opted out of the rematch and decided to fight Teixeira... who wasn't even ranked in the top ten at the time Jones personally hand-picked Teixeira as his opponent, nor has Teixeira even fought an opponent in the top ten in the UFC light heavyweight division.

The co-main event is probably of more interest to MMA fans than the Jones vs. Teixeira bout, as the co-main event features the return of Anthony Johnson to the UFC against Phil Davis.

I'll be away from my computer, but I'll try to post from my phone... and there might be a couple of guys hanging out and calling them as they see them during the fights, and giving their round scores as well.

Wow !!!

That was a fantastic night of fights !

Some exciting fights and finishes.

I'm surprised at how Goldie and Rogan were hyping Jones' performance... especially when you consider the guy he was fighting was ranked around #15 when the match-up was made, and he couldn't finish him !

Duke's performance convinced me that she shouldn't be fighting top 5 opponents... and that Chris Beal KO should not only win a $50,000 performance bonus, but it should also merit another $50,000 for KTFO of the night !

I ended up sleeping through the card (Damnit, yesterday was a 22 hour long day, by the time I got to bed, and I'm still playing catch up!) - But when I woke up, it was to a few surprises:

1) The "Uber" Bones Jones was unable to finish a low ranking fighter (not even top 10!) like Texiera. Despite DFW touting him as the greatest thing since sliced bread, I think it can safely be said that Jones' time as champ is nearing its end. Especially if he grows a pair again, and gives Gus a rematch!

2) Rumble came out on top against Davis. I really didn't expect that!

3) Bethe Correia won so lopsidedly against Jessamyn Duke. I expected a much closer fight, and even a victory from Duke.

I actually expected more aggression from AJ, but I guess he did what he needed to do to secure a UFC comeback win.
