Undefeated submission specialist Paul Sass and Evan Dunham have verbally confirmed to meet at UFC on Fox 2 on January 28 in Chicago.

British lightweight Sass is highly rated by the UFC after beginning life under MMA's top promotion with two victories. His first bout saw him beat Mark Holst via triangle choke for Submission of the Night, and he followed that up with a heel hook stoppage of Michael Johnson.

Dunham is also coming off a win, over Shamar Bailey, and is rebuilding his reputation after back-to-back losses to Sean Sherk and Melvin Guillard.

News of the Sass v Dunham bout comes quickly on the back of Rashad Evans' matchup with Phil Davis. Further fights are expected to be announced shortly.
