After long break, Jones is ready to fight

BALTIMORE, MD -- At first, the main event of Jon "Bones" Jones vs. Glover Teixeira was supposed to take place at UFC 169 on February 1st.  Then, it was linked to UFC 170 on February 22nd, then again to UFC 171 on March 15th, before finally making a permanent home on the main card at UFC 172 on Saturday.  The last time Jones fought was against Alexandre Gustafsson back on September 21st, a full seven months ago.

In that time off, Jones has taken some time to focus on his family, and grow as a person.  But, now that fight weekend is upon us, he's itching to get back in that octagon.
