"That's what the champ wants," UFC President Dana White said of a match between Jones and Teixeira. "We'll probably have that fight on the Super Bowl card in New Jersey."
The fight will likely take place at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, one night before the Super Bowl. Jones is hoping to break Anderson Silva's record of most consecutive title defenses, a mark he's still far off from.
"I said before the fight my sights were set on breaking the record," Jones stated. "I want to crush the record. I want to beat the record so bad it can never be broken. I'm going to fight Glover and I will answer all the critics about the Gustafsson fight. I will fight Gustafsson after I fight Glover. I won the fight but I look at it as a blemish on my record because some people think I didn't. I promise you, he will be next."
Alexander Gustafsson, the man most fight fans wanted to see back in the cage against Jones, will not get an immediate rematch. Instead, White said, the Swede will get a different opponent early next year in his home country.
"I had a great fight until the end of the fourth (round), then he caught me with an elbow," Gustafsson said of his UFC 165 bout with Jones during a recent airing of UFC Tonight. "That just took all my energy in the fifth round, so I didn't have any gas left from that elbow.
"I'm feeling great, but at the same time I've never been this disappointed before. For me, it's not like just having a good fight. I really wanted that belt, so it sucks."
Gustafsson will have to wait for another chance to duke it out with Jones.
"I saw an opportunity and I took it," Gustafsson said. "It wasn't that hard, actually. That's why I was surprised."
