UFC on Fox: Evans vs. Davis (also known as UFC on Fox 2) was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on January 28, 2012 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.[2]

Background[edit]

The event was the first to be broadcast on Fox as part of a seven year agreement between the UFC and the network and the second to air live on Fox after the inaugural UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos.[3]

A bout between Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Wineland was originally slated for this event. However, Johnson was pulled from the bout to be a participant in the UFC's Flyweight tournament set to begin in March. Wineland was then expected to face Johnny Bedford at this event.[4] However, Wineland himself was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by promotional newcomer Mitch Gagnon.[5] Then just days before the event, the bout was cancelled due to an alleged visa issue for Gagnon.[6]

Paul Sass was expected to face Evan Dunham, but was forced from the bout with an injury and replaced by Nik Lentz.[7]

Cody McKenzie was expected to face Michael Johnson at the event, but was forced from the bout with an injury and replaced by Shane Roller.[8]

Mark Munoz was expected to face Chael Sonnen in a #1 contender's bout for a middleweight title shot, but Munoz was forced out of the bout with an injury. Michael Bisping, who was pulled from a scheduled fight with Demian Maia,[9] replaced Munoz to face Sonnen in the #1 contender's bout. Chris Weidman would step in on 11 days notice to face Maia as Bisping's replacement.[10]

The preliminary bout between Chris Camozzi and Dustin Jacoby was not aired on television or Facebook, making it the first bout on a UFC card to go unaired on the event's live broadcast since UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis in March 2011.[11]

The event averaged 4.7 million viewers with a ratings peak of 6 million viewers for the main event.[12]

UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit UFC on Fuel TV: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger UFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson

UFC on Fuel TV: Sanchez vs. Ellenberger (also known as UFC on Fuel TV 1), was the first UFC event to air exclusively on Fuel TV. It was held on February 15, 2012 at the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska.[14] At the time, the event was the most watched show ever aired on Fuel TV with 217,000 viewers tuning in.[15]

Background[edit]

The main event consisted of Diego Sanchez facing Jake Ellenberger. Ellenberger came into the match on a five fight win streak, four of which ended by stoppage, including one against Jake Shields. The fight against Ellenberger would become Sanchez's eighteenth fight with the UFC going back to April 2005 when he won The Ultimate Fighter 1.[16] Ellenberger continued his win streak defeating Sanchez by unanimous decision.

Rani Yahya was expected to face Jonathan Brookins at the event. However, Yahya was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Vagner Rocha.[17]

Promotional newcomers Yoislandy Izquierdo and Bernardo Magalhaes were expected to face each other at the event. However, Izquierdo was not allowed to compete due to a contractual dispute with another organization and was replaced by Tim Means.[18]

A bout between Buddy Roberts and Sean Loeffler was scheduled for the preliminary card. However, the pairing was scrapped on the day of the event as Loeffler injured his ankle during a pre-fight warm up.[19] With the loss of the Roberts/Loeffler bout, the event took place with only nine fights, making it the smallest fight card for the promotion since UFC 91 in 2008.

UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on July 21, 2012 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary. It was the first event that the UFC has held in the Canadian province of Alberta.[45][46]

Background[edit]

On April 24, due to a conflict with the UN Conference, the UFC Middleweight Championship bout between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen, which was originally scheduled to main event UFC 147 was moved to UFC 148 to serve as the new main event. Plans were then being made for Jose Aldo, who at the time was scheduled to defend his title at this event against an undetermined opponent, to headline UFC 147.[47] However it was reported on April 28, 2012, that Aldo would remain on this card and defend his title against Erik Koch.[48]

The bout between Michael Bisping and Tim Boetsch, originally scheduled for UFC 148, was moved to this event to help bolster this (the UFC 149) fight card.[49] However, Bisping was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by promotional newcomer Hector Lombard.[50]

Yoshihiro Akiyama was expected to face Thiago Alves at this event, but was forced to pull out of the fight due to injury and replaced by Siyar Bahadurzada.[51] Then on June 1, Alves pulled out of the bout citing an injury[52] and was replaced by Chris Clements.[53] However, Bahadurzada was also forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by Matthew Riddle.[54]

Thiago Silva was expected to face Maurício Rua at the event. However, Silva was forced out of the bout with an injury and Rua was pulled from the event entirely, and would face Brandon Vera at UFC on Fox 4.[55]

On June 4, 2012 it was announced that the UFC signed former DREAM champion Bibiano Fernandes. He was expected to compete against Roland Delorme.[56] However, a week later it was announced that Fernandes was removed from the event due to injury but was later announced that Ferandes had not signed with the UFC. Francisco Rivera has filled in to fight Delorme.[57]

On June 9, 2012 it was announced that UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo was removed from the event due to injury. No replacement has yet been named for his scheduled opponent, Erik Koch.[58] As a result, the UFC Interim Bantamweight Championship fight between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao was re-scheduled as the main event of the fight.[59]

George Roop was scheduled to fight Antonio Carvalho, but on June 26, Roop was forced out of the fight and replaced by Daniel Pineda.[60]

Former Pride and Interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira was expected to face Cheick Kongo at the event. However, Nogueira pulled out of the bout, citing that an arm injury sustained in his last bout had not healed enough to resume the proper training and was replaced by Shawn Jordan.[61]

Claude Patrick was expected to face James Head at the event. However, Patrick was forced out of the bout with an injury and was replaced by Brian Ebersole.[62]
