Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping are set to headline UFC on FX 7, which will open the UFC's 2013 schedule. The fight card is not packed with big names, but it avoided the main-event injury bug that plagued the UFC throughout 2012.
According to UFC president Dana White (via MMAFighting.com), a middleweight title shot will be on the line when Belfort and Bisping step into the cage. However, Bisping will be the only fighter eligible to earn said title shot, as Belfort has already been knocked out brutally by 185-pound champion Anderson Silva.
Though Belfort and Bisping will get most of the attention, there are some more meaningful fights on the UFC on FX 7 main card. As the 2013 UFC schedule nears, let's take a look at what each of the UFC on FX 7 competitors will need to do to pick up their first wins of the year.
