UFC on FOX 2: Cub Swanson vs George Roop booked for Jan. 28 in Chicago

The UFC on FOX 2 fight card continues to take shape for the promotion's trip to the United Center on Jan. 28, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois, as Cub Swanson and George Roop have been paired off for a 145-pound preliminary scrap in "The Windy City."

Swanson (15-5) is 2-3 over his last five, having last competed at UFC on FOX 1, where he found himself on the wrong end of a second round arm-triangle choke courtesy of Ricardo Lamas. Roop (12-8-1) has also struggled in recent appearances, losing a split decision to Hatsu Hioki at UFC 137: "Penn vs. Diaz" last month in Las Vegas.

Could one of these competitors be facing the chopping block with a loss in "Chi-town?"

UFC on Fox 2, which will mark the promotion's second appearance on network television, will be headlined by a light heavyweight number one contender bout, as Rashad Evans and Phil Davis return from injury to battle for the right to fight the winner of Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida.

Also penciled in for the FOX fight card is a middleweight title eliminator pitting former championship challenger Chael Sonnen against streaking 185-pound wrecking ball Mark Munoz.
