The UFC's second outing on FOX will land in Chicago, UFC president Dana White confirmed to MMA Fighting on Thursday.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani, White said that the event will take place on January 28. Although he didn't specify the venue, it is expected to take place at the United Center.

White said he is expecting to put together a four-fight main card, and has several fights in mind, but would not divulge any details until speaking with his FOX partners on Monday. He said that he is not expecting to include a championship fight on the card.

The event will mark the UFC's first time in Illinois since UFC 90 in October 2008.

Sonnen is denying the fight.

The co-mains aren't the strongest possible, but you have to figure that, with 6-8 fights still unnamed, there will be a few more compelling matchups. Something along the lines of Maia vs. Belcher perhaps.

Yeah, I agree. I'm from St. Louis and this is the first UFC card that is in a good enough city at a good enough distance for me to go to, since I've been an MMA fan (which is a damn long time). Evans/Davis is a solid fight, Sonnen/Munoz is a decent fight, but both are potentially boring as hell. Johnson/Wineland is a solid prelim.Russow/Einemo is sick.So far, just OK, I'd like one GREAT fight (UFC on Fox 1 got JDS/Cain, 139 got Hendo/Shogun, 140 gets 3, and I can go on.)

I am dissapoint. It's not that I hate those fights, it's just a little disappointing as a Chicago resident. I want the best of the best here. No idea how they plan on selling out the United Center with that main card. REAL TALK (can't believe I just typed that/that just happened)

Looks like the UFC decided to use the Fox exposure to feature #1 contenders and publicize future PPV title fights. Rumored card thus far:- Evans vs. Davis- Sonnen vs. Munoz- Johnson vs. Wineland- Russow vs. Einemo
