When Jon Jones Absolutely Annihilated Glover Teixeira 

Current light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira locked horns with Jon Jones at UFC 172, back in 2014.

Jones held the same title back then, and defended it against the veteran successfully.

Jones was already known to breeze through his opponents effortlessly.

But the expectations were set really high as the challenger Glover was on 20-fight win-streak to get the title shot.

But soon the fight turned devastating for Teixeira and he lost the bout by unanimous decision which ended his long-running win-streak.

Teixeira finally won the light heavyweight title, defeating Jan Blachowicz at UFC 267.

He is all set to defend his title for the first time, this weekend, against Jiri Prochazka.

While Jon Jones is expected to make his heavyweight debut against Stipe Miocic later this year.
