UFC president Dana White on Monday bolstered the UFC on Fox 2 fight card that will feature co-headline bouts with former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans taking on Phil Davis and Chael Sonnen clashing with Mark Munoz in a middleweight contenders showdown.
Those bouts were already on the docket, but White added that five more bouts have been verbally agreed to.
Evan Dunham, who was at one time just a step away from a title shot, will square off with Paul Sass in lightweight action. Another bout between 155-pounders pits Ultimate Fighter alums Michael Johnson and Cody McKenzie against each other.
Other fights expected at the United Center in Chicago on Jan. 28 include Cub Swanson vs. George Roop in featherweight action. Former bantamweight contender Demtrious Johnson will return to action against Eddie Wineland in what will likely be a barnburner of a fight. There’s also a fight between the big boys as Jonh-Olav Einemo is back in the Octagon against Chicago’s own Mike Russow.
