In another free UFC event on FOX, Rashad Evans and Phil Davis headline an exciting fight card as they fight for a light heavyweight title shot.

Another elimination bout features big talkers Chael Sonnen and Michaei Bisping. They've already had their war of words, but it's time to settle it inside the octagon, with the winner facing middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Sonnen has already fought Silva, and lost after being submitted in the 5th round, despite dominating most of the fight up to that point.

The other fight on FOX features middleweights Demian Maia and Chris Weidman. Maia fought Silva in a title fight previously and was dominated, as Silva toyed with him in a 5-round decision win.

Here's the full schedule:

For the record, this score was later corrected, according to Dana White, and Weidman actually won all 3 rounds.

Of couse Evans won, he better work harder if he thinks he gonna beat Jon Jones. Jones looked great last time out.

Here we go Evans has him, now can he put Davis away??

They both llook tire, wonder what will happen in the last round. I was hoping to see the Evans in the Rampage fight, Hungry!!!! not so much here, sitting back looking for shots.

He was knocked out by Hendo, Mike can fight, I will not take that away. Silva would beat him bu tI believe Mike would put up a good fight. Yeayh I could se it 29-28. Now the Evans-Davis fight is going a lot better.

yea i definately agree you could give it to sonnen 29-28, it was close. To be honest id have liked to see bisping vs silva it would have been a highlight reel for silva for sure. i think bisping maybe hasnt fought the right fights to deserve a shot to be honest though.

 I agree with both of you. I was rooting for Chael, only because I'd rather see a rematch than see Silva wreck Bisping, but I still think Bisping won that fight.

I could at least understand a judge calling it 29-28 in favor of Chael, but the 30-27 score is mind-boggling and unacceptable.

bbisping won that fight, i do not know how 1 judge called it 30-27. PATHETIC!

I do not like Mike, but I have to say he was robbed. He won the first two rounds

 That fight was embarrassing to watch. Can't blame Weidman, who took the fight on short notice and had to cut 32 pounds in 11 days, but Maia's conditioning was awful. There's no excuse for him.
