Alers vs. Knight Set for Chicago Bout

 

Featherweight prospects Jim Alers and Jason Knight will travel to Chicago on July 23, as they meet in a FOX UFC Fight Night bout at United Center.

In the main event, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm faces rising star Valentina Shevchenko, and in the co-featured bout, light heavyweight contenders Anthony "Rumble" Johnson and Glover Teixeira collide.

Mississippi's Knight has won eight of his last nine bouts, finishing six of those victories. In Alers, he faces a grappling specialist who is 1-1 with 1 NC in his UFC career thus far.
