Report: Evan Dunham vs Paul Sass possible for UFC on FOX 2 on Jan. 28 in Chicago

There's a fantastic lightweight battle brewing for the UFC on FOX 2 event, pitting top division prospect Evan Dunham against the sassy stylings of British submission specialist Paul Sass.

ESPN UK first brought word of the pending match-up, which is under consideration for the United Center on Jan. 28, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois.

Dunham (12-2) rocketed to the top of the lightweight buzz list with wins over Efrain Escudero and Tyson Griffin; however, a close split decision loss to Sean Sherk, followed by a first-round ass-whooping at the hands of Melvin Guillard, sent the talented Oregon native to the back of the line.

He quickly rebounded with a lopsided unanimous decision win over Shamar Bailey at UFC Fight Night 25 back in September.

Can he survive the dreaded "Sassangle" in the "Windy City?"

Sass is undefeated at 12-0 and has finished 11 of his victims by way of submission. If you're keeping score at home, the count is eight triangle chokes and three heel hooks -- including one over Michael Johnson at UFC on Versus 6 back in October.

Scary stuff.

UFC on FOX 2 is expected to be headlined by a 205-pound showdown pitting former light heavyweight champion "Suga" Rashad Evans against "Wonderful" undefeated contender Phil Davis.
