UFC on FOX 2 is set to go down from Chicago’s United Center on January 28 live on FOX TV.

The co-feature of the evening is a middleweight number one contender bout between Mark Munoz and Chael Sonnen.

Jacoby entered the UFC with an unbeaten streak of six fights and an unblemished professional record. After just 12 months in the business he went into his UFC debut at UFC 137 against Clifford Starks and suffered his first career loss.
Camozzi was introduced to the UFC audience during “The Ultimate Fighter” season 11. He was last seen in action in a losing effort to Francis Carmont at UFC 137. He took the bout on short notice and as a result has dropped two of his last seven fights.
