After all the hoopla -- press conferences, weigh-ins, trash talking sessions, all that jazz -- Rashad Evans and Phil Davis will finally hook 'em up in the main event of tonight's (Sat., Jan. 28, 2012) UFC on Fox 2 event scheduled for the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
On the line (for Evans, at least) is a light heavyweight title shot against Jon Jones, likely at UFC 145 on April 21 in Atlanta. That's assuming "Suga" can win and come out with no significant injuries.
It would be somewhat poetic, really. That event is scheduled to take place at the exact same arena where Evans took . He cashed in on it, too. soul and earned his first 205-pound championship chance
It's a big night tonight for Rashad. But "Mr. Wonderful" is standing in his way, eager to take his spot and catapult himself up the ladder of top contenders. He won't earn a title shot with a win like his counterpart but he'll be damn close.
Oh and this is all going down on network TV, folks. It doesn't get much bigger than this.
