UFC NEWS | Cruz Replaces Jones In This Week's UFC on FOX Q&A | Updated Schedule Of Events
We previously announced here on BJPENN.COM that this week’s UFC Fan Q&A session was being handled by UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones.
That was the original plan, however for undisclosed reasons the champ has been forced out of the commitment and in his place comes bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz.
The Media workouts originally thought to be open to the public had to be altered and now only credentialed members of the media may attend the event. The venue selected for the fan friendly work out session is too small to accommodate the expected crowd of spectators and as a result has been closed to the public.
UFC on FOX 2 is set to take place on Saturday, January 27 from The United Center. In the main event, Phil Davis will square off with Rashad Evans for the number one contender seat in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division ruled over by Jon Jones. The co-feature of the evening is a middleweight number one contender bout between Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen. The televised main card is available for free on FOX and the preliminary portion is set for FUEL.
