UFC 172 extended video preview for 'Jones vs Teixeira' on April 26 in Baltimore

After looking mortal against "The Mauler," the 205-pound champ will try to re-establish his dominance against a dangerous striker who hasn't lost in over nine years.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has released its extended video preview for the upcoming UFC 172: "Jones vs. Teixeira" pay-per-view (PPV) event, which is scheduled to take place this Saturday night (April 26, 2014) inside Maryland's Baltimore Arena.

See the full finalized fight card and televised bout order here.

While there are a couple of compelling match ups on the "Charm City" fight card, including Anthony Johnson taking on Phil Davis in "Rumble's" Octagon return, the UFC 172 event is all about the light heavyweight headliner pitting Jon Jones against hard-hitting contender Glover Teixeira.

Who moves on to face Alexander Gustafsson later this year?

Expect No. 5-ranked light heavyweight contender Daniel Cormier to be watching this PPV with vested interest. While "DC" has been flirting with a Dan Henderson fight, there's a very strong chance he could face the No. 4-ranked Davis, assuming "Mr. Wonderful" can get the job done against Johnson.

Lots to see and do this weekend in Baltimore.
