Tonight marks an important evening for a number of fighters at UFC on FX 5 who are looking to either take their careers to the next level in 2013 with a win at the event or avoid a potential axing in defeat. The card is headlined by a heavyweight bout between unbeaten up-and-comer Travis Browne and seasoned veteran Antonio Silva in addition to also including a flyweight fight to determine the division’s top contender featuring John Dodson-Jussier Formiga and what should be a welterweight war involving Jay Hieron-Jake Ellenberger.
