Featherweights Jim Alers, Jason Knight To Collide In Chicago


UFC on FOX 20 has picked up another featherweight contest, as Jim Alers takes on Jason Knight.

Alers (13-2) has split his two Octagon fights, besting Alan Omer and falling to Chas Skelly. His most recent bout vs. Cole Miller ended in a no-contest after an accidental eye poke.

Knight (13-2) dropped his debut to Tatsuya Kawajiri this past December after winning nine in a row on the regional circuit.

UFC on FOX 20 takes place July 23 from Chicago with Holly Holm meeting Valentina Shevchenko in the main event.
