Recent reports are indicating that we won’t have to wait long for the second appearance of the UFC on Fox. The promotion is planning to hold “UFC on Fox 2” on January 28, in the United Center in Chicago, Ill. This comes on the heels of the final numbers of their first event showing a higher than estimated peak of 8.8 million viewers.
This makes for a very saturated schedule as the UFC will have one event every week in the beginning of 2012. There is a lot of speculation as far as which fighters may be a good draw to headline promotion’s second Fox event, even a potential rematch between Chael Sonnen and Anderson Silva.
Early 2012 UFC Schedule
Saturday, January 14 – UFC 142: Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony “Rumble” Johnson
Friday, January 20 – UFC on FX: Melvin Guillard vs. Jim Miller
Saturday, January 28 – UFC on Fox 2: ???
Saturday, February 4 – UFC 143: Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz (expected)
Dana White indicated that UFC on Fox 2 will feature four fights and the main event will not be for a UFC title.
