It looks like the rumors were true. ESPN.com is reporting that Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis will headline UFC on FOX 2.
Rashad Evans and Phil Davis will meet in a light heavyweight bout slated for Jan. 28.
The fight, which multiple sources confirmed to ESPN.com, will take place at UFC on Fox 2, the promotion’s second show on the network.
The Evans-Davis fight is expected to headline the UFC on Fox 2 card, which takes place at the United Center in Chicago.
Evans and Davis were originally supposed to meet at UFC 133, but Davis suffered a knee injury which eventually led to Tito Ortiz filling in on short notice. Hopefully they both make it to Chicago healthy this time.
It still hasn’t been confirmed by the UFC, but Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz is expected to take the co-main event slot.
