Prior to the title fight, FOX Sports features former UFC champion Rampage Jackson against red hot light heavyweight fighter Glover Teixeira; former WEC champion Anthony Pettis taking on Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone the winner of which could get a title shot at lightweight champion Benson Henderson; and Erik Koch returning from injury to face Chicago native Ricardo Lamas in the featherweight division.      
 
UFC announcers Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan call all bouts on FOX Sports with the preliminary matches airing live on FX.  Beginning at 5:00 PM ET, host Jon Anik and analysts UFC light heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen and bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz offer analysis for the preliminary bouts on FX. When coverage shifts to FOX at 8:00 PM ET, host Curt Menefee is joined by Brian Stann and Sonnen to preview and breakdown the main event’s bouts. Both shows originate LIVE on-site from the United Center in Chicago.  Additionally, preliminary bouts and the main card fights air live on FSMG’s Spanish language network FOX Deportes. UFC announcer Larry Pepe hosts all matches for FOX Sports Radio.
