Heavyweight Jon Olav Einemo, who was cut after dropping his UFC debut over issues with his management Golden Glory, will return to the Octagon to face Mike Russow at UFC on Fox 2 on January 28 in Chicago, according to MMAFighting.
Einemo (6-2) suffered a second-round TKO to Dave Herman that earned “Fight of the Night” honors at UFC 131 in June in his first fight in more than four years. Russow (14-1), a Chicago police officer, stopped Jon Madsen in March for his third-straight UFC win and 10th in a row overall, but an October return was scrapped after Herman failed a pre-fight drug test.
UFC on Fox 2 does not yet have a main event, but a bantamweight bout between Demetrious Johnson and Eddie Wineland is also targeted for the event.
