Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixeira fight results UFC 172, Round 2

Jones attempted a takedown fairly early here, but Glover sprawled and avoided it. He went back to loading up the big right hand while Jones' corner screamed for him to enjoy himself.


Jones got in and landed a hard elbow that rocked Teixeira. He came in to finish the job, maybe with a choke, but the referee stepped in to stop it after an eye poke.

After the restart, the Brazilian came in with a series of punches and found success pushing the champ against the fence. He never landed hard enough to do a lot of damage, but he at least reasserted himself.

Jones came back firing elbows from the right, which caused Joe Rogan to wonder from the commentary desk if a hand injury was in play.

The round closed with Jones missing on a wheel kick.
