Evan Dunham

A lightweight bout has been added to the UFC on Fox 2 fight card with Evan Dunham meeting undefeated British fighter Paul Sass.

The fight was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the situation on Thursday. ESPN first reported the bout.

Not long ago, Dunham was maybe a fight away from a title shot, but after losing a controversial decision to former champion Sean Sherk, the Oregon native ran into a buzzsaw named Melvin Guillard.

Dunham got back to winning form, however, after back-to-back losses with a dominant performance over Shamar Bailey in September. He looks to make it two in a row when he takes on a submission specialist from England.

With a perfect 12-0 record, Sass has looked nothing but impressive thus far in his young career.

Most recently, Sass submitted former “Ultimate Fighter” finalist Michael Johnson with a nasty heel hook to move his Octagon record to 7-0. Now he’ll face the toughest test of his UFC career when he gets Evan Dunham at UFC on Fox 2.

The UFC on Fox 2 card will take place Jan. 28 at Chicago’s United Center.

    I really like this guy, and I was happy to see him climb the ladder. He’s very talented and has been judged poorly. Even his win over T. Griffen, which was called a split decision, was one of the worst decisions ever made. Sure, he got the win, but when people see “split” they figure it could have gone either way, when Dunham absolutely rolled over Griffen in all three rounds.

    I hope he can get back up with some wins, because I think he can be in the title discussion.

    Plus who doesn’t love the way he dances like a three year old after he wins.

    gotta love Dunham, he brings it every time. Sass impressed the hell out of me seeing as he’s like the only fighter from the UK to show any serious jiu-jitsu. diggin the match-up
