The next bout for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has an official date – again – as “Bones” will look to extend his record-setting title defense streak against Brazilian powerhouse Glover Teixeira on Saturday, February 22 in Las Vegas.

The Jones-Teixeira bout was originally announced as the headliner for the UFC 169 Super Bowl weekend card in Newark, NJ, but that event will now be topped by two title fights: Dominick Cruz vs. Renan Barao to unify the bantamweight title and Jose Aldo vs. Ricardo Lamas at featherweight.

Tickets for UFC 170 go on sale on Wednesday, December 11.
