UFC ON FOX 2 will have its main card air live on FOX at 8PM ET. The bouts will be held in the United Center in Chicago. Preliminary bouts air live on Fuel TV starting at 5PM ET.

UFC Light Heavyweight Bout – Rashad Evans (16-1-1) vs. Phil Davis (9-0)

Oddsmakers see this one as a close contest, but I really feel Evans is far superior to Davis. Evans has the experience edge on Davis and also has the same strength of Davis in wrestling. Where Evans shines is with his speed and striking, where Davis still has a lot of learning to do. I see Evans keeping this fight standing and earning a clear decision victory. FREE PICK – Rashad Evans -170

UFC Heavyweight Bout – Chael Sonnen (26-11-1) vs. Michael Bisping (22-3)

Chael Sonnen is arguably the only man in the middleweight division that can beat current champ, Anderson Silva. But, Sonnen has a clear weakness against submission fighters. Luckily for him, Bisping is not that, or at least he hasn’t shown that. Bisping has also shown that he struggles with wrestlers and that is why Sonnen should be able to easily score takedowns in this fight and apply enough damage to earn a decision victory of his own. FREE PICK – Chael Sonnen -450

UFC Middleweight Bout – Demian Maia (15-3) vs. Chris Weidman (7-0)

Weidman is taking this fight on short notice and it is the biggest fight of his career to this point. So far, he has been able to handle his early UFC challenges with ease, but Maia is one of the best submission fighters in the world. Weidman trains with Matt Serra, a great submission fighter as well, so many expect him to be able to defend Maia’s attempts. However, I think Weidman will find himself in new territory for the first time and not handle it well, allowing Maia to score a second round submission. FREE PICK – Demian Maia +125
