UFC sells out Chicago

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has announced that its event on Saturday, Jan. 28 at the United Center in Chicago is officially sold out.

The UFC’s return to the Windy City is headlined by a light heavyweight No. 1 contender fight between former champion Rashad Evans and unbeaten Phil Davis, a former Penn State wrestling star.

In addition, middleweight contenders Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping collide for the right to fight champion Anderson Silva later this year, while Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Demian Maia meets red-hot 185-pound prospect Chris Weidman.

This tripleheader airs live on FOX at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

“The fans in Chicago have wanted us to come back there for a long time and they proved why it’s a great sports town by selling out the United Center,” UFC President Dana White said. “Get ready Chicago! We’re bringing a night of fights that you won’t forget!”
