This fight marks the final one on Jackson's current UFC contract. The former light heavyweight champion hasn't fought since he lost a unanimous decision to Ryan Bader at UFC 144 in February.

Jackson enters the fight stuck in a two-fight losing streak, while Teixeira has won his last 17 fights in a row.
