On Saturday, January 28 the UFC will head to Chicago’s United Center for their second event on Fox. The sold out fight card will feature three fights on Fox, two of which will have title shot ramifications.
In the main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans will face Phi Davis. A win for Evans will likely send him on his way to face current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. A Phil Davis win will not guarantee him an immediate title shot, but will put him very close to that opportunity.
In the co-main event, a middleweight title shot will be on the line when Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping face off inside the Octagon. The winner will face current UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, most likely in Brazil.
Opening the card on Fox will be a middleweight contest between the highly ranked Demian Maia and Chris Weidman. Weidman will come into the fight as a late replacement, taking the fight on less than two week’s notice.
