An interesting lightweight match-up has been verbally agreed to for the second UFC on Fox event, scheduled for January 28th at the United Center in Chicago. ESPN UK reports that British submission wizard, Paul Sass, will meet well-rounded Xtreme Couture product, Evan Dunham

This is a really tough fight for Sass. If he comes out of this one with a win, I think a lot of the doubt about him being able to compete at a high level has to be rethought. I'll bank on that not happening and questions still floating around the guy about whether his striking is good enough to get him by against top competition though.

I just can't pick Sass here. Dunham is much more well rounded and should be able to keep this where he'll have an advantage, the feet.

I wish Sass wins by Flying Triangle of the cage, actually I just wish Sass wins.

One of my favourite LWs vs one of my least Favourites...

Deep down its sad I know who's Really better.

I agree. If Sass wins this one I will be really impressed because Evan Dunham is one of the worst style matchups for him possible. Dunham has good offensive striking, solid wrestling, and a jits game built on good positioning and fundamentals. Even more important against Sass, he doesn't get out of control.

I want to pick Sass just cause I like the kid but it's hard to pick against Dunham.

I wanna say Dunham will out work Sass but... he looked weathered against Bailey & he didnt even show up to the Guillard fight. PLUS Sass is on FIREEE! Ill be picking this one on Saturday afternoon
