A lightweight bout has been added to the UFC’s return trip to network TV. Extreme Couture fighter, Evan Dunham has agreed to face off with the U.K.’s Paul Sass.
While not officially announced by the promotion, UFC on FOX 2 is expected to go down from Chicago’s United Center on January 28.
Dunham was last seen at UFC Fight Night 24 in a calculated performance where he was able to outpoint Shamar Bailey and earn a unanimous decision victory. The win over Bailey was greatly needed after the former top-contender took defeat in two consecutive bouts to Sean Sherk and Melvin Guillard.
Sass will make his third UFC appearance when he steps across the cage against Dunham. He was last seen against Michael Johnson at UFC on Versus 6 where he won with a heel hook submission.
