Paul Abell-US PRESSWIRE

Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and No. 1 division contender Glover Teixeira will have some unexpected Heavyweight company on UFC 169 pay-per-view (PPV) main card this upcoming Super Bowl weekend 2014 in New Jersey.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is already adding to its "Super" pay-per-view (PPV) plans, making its return to Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on Sat., Feb. 1, 2014, official earlier this afternoon.

As expected, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones will headline the mixed martial arts (MMA) bonanza opposite Glover Teixeira, who managed to leapfrog Alexander Gustafsson even though the resilient Swede gave "Bones" the fight of his life at UFC 165 late last month (Sept., 26, 2013) in Toronto, Canada.

Unexpectedly, the promotion also revealed that the "do or die" Heavyweight showdown between former division champion, Frank Mir, and former Strikeforce / K-1 / DREAM belt holder, Alistair Overeem, will be featured on the Super Bowl weekend PPV main card, shifting from UFC 167 20th Anniversary show that is planned for next month.

No official reason for the fight card switch is known at this time; however, for more information on Frank Mir vs. Alistair Overeem click here.

UFC 169 will coincide with Super Bowl 48, which takes place at MetLife Stadium in nearby East Rutherford, N.J., on Sun., Feb. 2, 2013. No other potential matches for UFC 169 are known at this time.

Stay tuned.
