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.
