Two of the heaviest hitters in the UFC, Quinton Jackson and Glover Teixeira, are set to finally meet at UFC on Fox 6 on January 26 in Chicago. The match was initially scheduled for UFC 153, but an injury to Jackson led to Fabio Maldonado stepping up against his countryman Teixeira and getting absolutely mauled. Both men are entering the contest for different reasons. For Jackson, the match is his swansong as he runs out the last fight in his UFC contract and possibly looks to exit the promotion. For Teixeira, however, this is just another step in the journey toward an almost preordained title shot.
