The UFC’s January 28 appearance on FOX is starting to shape up to be far better than its predecessor, a statement saying a lot considering the presence of Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos on the inaugural card and broadcast’s record-breaking viewership.

With about six weeks to go, UFC on FOX 2 is set to be headlined by former light heavyweight title-holder Rashad Evans looking to cement his long-awaited second shot at the belt by facing undefeated phenom Phil Davis and also features colorful middleweight Chael Sonnen taking on surging grappler Mark Munoz with a bout against 185-pound champion Anderson Silva up for grabs.

Now the UFC has confirmed five other fights for the Chicago-based event including today’s earlier news regarding Demetrious Johnson vs. Eddie Wineland.

Finally, as rumored, heavyweight BJJer John Olav Einemo takes on Chicago cop, and 14-1 Mixed Martial Artist, Mike Russow.
