UFC on FOX 2: Demetrious Johnson vs Eddie Wineland on tap for Jan. 28 in Chicago

Former UFC bantamweight number one contender Demetrious Johnson will try to get back on his horse after falling to Dominick Cruz earlier this year in a fast-paced fight against Eddie Wineland, currently scheduled for UFC on FOX 2 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

MMA Weekly brought word of the pending match-up earlier today.

Johnson (9-2) gets an A for effort, but was unable to match "The Dominator" in the striking department at UFC on Versus 6 back on Oct. 1. The loss to Cruz snapped a four-fight winning streak that included unanimous decision victories over Miguel Torres and "Kid" Yamamoto.

Not a bad start for the 25-year old Kirkland native.

Wineland (18-8-1) had also put together a string of four straight wins, which vaulted him into a showdown opposite former champion Urijah Faber at UFC 128.

Unfortunately "The California Kid" was the busier of the two and took home the judge's nod to move on to bigger and better things, while Wineland attempted to rebound against Joseph Benavidez.

He was unable to overcome his opponent's "Joe-Jitsu" and now has back-to-back losses heading into "The Windy City," so expect a sense of urgency in this 135-pound match-up.
