The UFC stands alone this weekend with one of the biggest cards of the year.

Reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones (19-1) will face Glover Teixeira (22-2) in the main event of UFC 172 this Saturday, from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, MD.

In the co-main event, Anthony Johnson (16-4) returns to the Octagon, this time at light heavyweight when he battles Phil Davis (12-1) in a pivotal fight for the division.

A middleweight bout is featured on the main card as well. Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (11-2) looks to make his UFC record positive after splitting his first two fights in the promotion. He will face the always tough Tim Boetsch (17-6).
