All's well that ends well, folks.

With the petty spat between Team Golden Glory and the UFC in the rear view mirror, business is back to usual and that means Jon Olav Einemo has been welcomed back to the Octagon with open arms.

This is evidenced by the fact that he's been booked for a heavyweight throwdown against local boy Mike Russow at UFC on Fox 2 on Jan. 28, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois.

MMAFighting.com brought word of the pending match-up earlier today.

Before his debut with the promotion, Einemo wasn't exactly a hot commodity. After all, he had fought just seven times in his career and was inactive dating all the way back to 2006.

Then he went out and put on the "Fight of the Night" against Dave Herman at UFC 131 in Vancouver and won over the fans with his hard-charging style. Now he's back and (hopefully) ready to give fight fans more of the same.

Standing across from him will be Mike Russow, who hasn't lost a fight since 2007 and has managed to string together a successful Octagon career despite a complete lack of hype for him.

That could be because he's not exactly the easiest on the eyes, but it's impossible to argue with his results. Three wins in as many fights with two them coming by way of stoppage.

A future title contender? Anyone?

UFC on FOX 2 is set to take place on Jan. 28, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois, and will feature a middleweight match-up pitting Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz. The only other bout booked for the card is a bantamweight showdown between Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Wineland.
