The UFC returns to FOX on Saturday night for UFC on FOX: Shogun vs Vera. Although the main card has been shuffled due to injuries, fight fans can look forward to an exciting night of fights that are both relevant and entertaining.
The main event could determine the No. 1 contender for the UFC light-heavyweight championship. Former champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua will do battle with Brandon Vera in a contest that UFC.com is calling "a five-round light heavyweight battle between two of the best Muay Thai strikers in the game."
Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader will do battle in the evening's co-main event. With Dana White's announcement that the light-heavyweight who wins most impressively will get a title shot, you had better believe that these stars will be looking to make a splash for the man in charge.
The other main card fights should offer plenty of action. In the opening bout on the FOX portion of the event, Ultimate Fighter contestants collide when DaMarques Johnson welcomes back fan-favorite Mike Swick after a 30-month layoff. After that, Jamie Varner will attempt to score his second upset in as many appearances when he takes on submission-machine Joe Lauzon.
Here are the previews, odds and predictions for the UFC on Fox 4 main card.
