A couple of The Ultimate Fighter veterans are set to square off in Chicago for UFC on FOX 10. It’s the newest addition to an already stacked fight card that is headlined by a lightweight battle between Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson.
Daron Cruickshank is looking to rebound after being submitted by Adriano Martins. He is 1-2 in his last three outings with his only win coming via split decision over Yves Edwards in July. He sits 3-2 overall inside the UFC. He may not be in as much of a must win situation as his opponent Mike Rio.
Rio has dropped back to back fights with both ending in the first round. He was submitted at UFC 166 by Tony Ferguson and before that he tapped to Francisco Trinaldo.
UFC on FOX 10 takes place at the United Center in Chicago on January 25th and marks the third trip there in as many years for a FOX event. Here is a look at the fight card as it stands.
