Mixed martial arts (MMA) photographer extraordinaire, Esther Lin, was on the scene at the Chicago Boxing Club in Chicago, Ill., today (Jan. 25, 2012) to shoot several of the notable fighters who will compete on the UFC on Fox 2: "Evans vs. Davis" main card at the event's open media workouts.
Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event, Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis, were on the scene to promote their light heavyweight clash, as well as work up one of the last few real sweats prior to fight night (Sat., Jan. 28, 2012) at the United Center in the "Windy City."
Co-main event participants, Chael Sonnen vs. Michael Bisping, were also in attendance prior to their 185-pound clash, which will determine the next challenger for UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.
