update 11/14: Dana White indicated at the UFC 167 press conference that the Jon Jones vs. Glover Teixiera title fight may be off of the February 22 card as well. Details will be announced on UFC.com as they become available.

original article: The next bout for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has an official date -- again -- as "Bones" will look to extend his record-setting title defense streak against Brazilian powerhouse Glover Teixeira on Saturday, February 22 in Las Vegas.
 
The Jones-Teixeira bout was originally announced as the headliner for the UFC 169 Super Bowl weekend card in Newark, NJ, but that event will now be topped by two title fights: Dominick Cruz vs. Renan Barao to unify the bantamweight title and Jose Aldo vs. Ricardo Lamas at featherweight.
