Set for April 26, the event takes place from Baltimore and the Baltimore Arena. In the headline fight, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will defend his title against Glover Teixeira.

Vallie-Flagg (14-4-1) is 5-1 in his last six, with the lone loss coming in his most recent encounter against Elias Silverio in January.
