The UFC will return to Chicago, Illinois to kick off their 2013 Fox Network schedule at the United Center. The card will serve as the home for the previously announced lightweight showdown between Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis. UFC officials announced the move on Monday.
While no other fights have been announced at this time, the card is likely to fill up quickly in the coming days. The card will serve as the first of four scheduled 2013 fight cards on Fox.
This will mark the second year that the UFC kicks off their Fox Network schedule in the “Windy City” after last year’s UFC on Fox 2.
