The Octagon hits the “Windy City” this Saturday night for UFC on FOX 16.
In the main event, T.J. Dillashaw makes his second bantamweight title defense, taking on former champion – and the person he won the belt from last year – Renan Barao. The main card airs on FOX beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
Dillashaw and Barao were scheduled once before, but the Brazilian passed out while cutting weight and was removed from the fight. The bout was postponed again when Dillashaw suffered an injury in training.
Along with the title fight, Jessica Eye and Miesha Tate meet in a title-eliminator in the UFC’s female bantamweight division.
Two lightweight fights round out the main card, as Edson Barboza meets Paul Felder and Joe Lauzon battles Takanori Gomi.
