UFC on FOX 2: Phil Davis vs. Rashad Evans Breakdown
Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC

This Saturday, the UFC will broadcast its first event on FOX since the largest MMA organization and largest television network officially began their partnership at the beginning of 2012.

The event, which will actually mark the UFC's second appearance on FOX after a teaser event on the channel in 2011, will be headlined by light heavyweight contenders Rashad Evans and Phil Davis. 

The winner of Saturday's main event could very well find himself facing 205-pound champion Jon Jones in his next Octagon appearance.

Evans has been considered the No. 1 contender for quite some time, but injuries to himself and the champions he was expected to meet delayed his shot at reclaiming the UFC belt. Meanwhile, former NCAA wrestling champion Davis has gone undefeated thus far in his MMA career and is expected to be a force in the light heavyweight division for the foreseeable future.

Title implications alone, this will be one of the most important fights of both competitors' respective careers. Competing in the main event of a network-televised event only adds to the pressure. 

Before Evans and Davis step into the Octagon, let's take a look at how the two match up against one another in all areas.
