UFC on FOX: Evans vs. Davis

Nice job, Chicago fight fans!

The UFC announced that its event on Saturday at the United Center is officially sold out. The UFC’s long-awaited return to Chicago is headlined by a light heavyweight No. 1 contender fight between former champion Rashad Evans and unbeaten Phil Davis. Middleweight contenders Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping collide for the right to fight champion Anderson Silva later this year, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Demian Maia meets red-hot 185-pound prospect Chris Weidman.

This exciting tripleheader airs live on FOX at 7pm local time. Viewers can also watch all of the preliminary fights live on Fuel TV beginning at 4pm.

“The fans in Chicago have wanted us to come back there for a long time and they proved why it’s a great sports town by selling out the United Center,” UFC President Dana White said. “Get ready Chicago! We’re bringing a night of fights that you won’t forget!”

Fans can also take in the weigh-ins at the Chicago Theatre on Friday evening, as well as many other UFC-related events in Chicago throughout the week.
