Pic: UFC 172 poster first-look for 'Jones vs Teixeira' on April 26 in Baltimore

Look out, Baltimore, because UFC 172 is about to storm your crabby shores with a hard-hitting 205-pound championship clash. And much, much more.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) passed on a big-money immediate 205-pound rematch when it booked its Light Heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, against Glover Teixiera -- and not Alexander Gustafsson -- to headline UFC 172, which takes place inside Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Md., on April 26, 2014.

Crab cakes!

Nonetheless, the pay-per-view (PPV) event is set up to be solid, with "Bones" charged with snapping the Brazilian's impressive 20-fight mixed martial arts (MMA) win streak. And he'll get the opportunity to try it in a city that is familiar with his surname thanks to his brother, Arthur Jones, who plays defensive end for the local Ravens NFL franchise.

Purple pain FTW?

That's not all.
