UFC On FOX 20 Gains First Four Fights For July Card

The Octagon returns to Chicago this summer with UFC on FOX 20.

The event is set for July 23 from the United Center and officials recently confirmed four bouts for the card.

Ryan LaFlare takes on Alexander Yakovlev, George Sullivan meets Hector Urbina, James Moontasri battles Alex Oliveira and Luis Henrique squares off with Dmiutry Smolyakov.

The most interesting of the four is the LaFlare (12-1) vs. Yakovlev (23-6-1) contest. LaFlare suffered his first pro loss at the hands of Demian Maia recently, while Yakovlev has picked up back-to-back victories over former title contender Gray Maynard and Sullivan.

Oliveira recently lost to Donald Cerrone in his first UFC mian event, while Smolyakov will be making his debut with the promotion.

No word yet on the main event for the card. The last time the UFC visited the “Windy City,” T.J. Dillashaw successfully defended his bantamweight belt vs. Renan Barao.
