Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis to Headline UFC on FOX 2 in Chicago, Illinois

Former light heavyweight champion, Rashad Evans will meet top prospect Phil Davis in the main event of UFC on FOX 2 on January 28th, 2012. News of the bout was first reported by ESPN.com but no official word from the UFC or either fighter as of yet.

Evans opted to wait almost a year for a title shot after beating Rampage Jackson, but a a string of injuries to both himself and then champion, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and now champion, Jon Jones forced cancellations, Evans went on to defeat Tito Ortiz. He was set to meet Davis earlier this year before yet another injury forced that bout off.

Davis is undefeated in nine fights his last victory came over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, although that was a lackluster affair he looked phenomenal in his previous eight outings.
