UFC officials have announced a handful of dates for 2013 events, including four Fox-televised cards. The schedule is now complete, but fans will at least be able to mark eight events down - barring any last-minute cancellations like this year has experienced.
First up will be UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping, which takes place January 16 from Brazil. The UFC returns to the U.S. with the first of four Fox cards on January 26 from Chicago.
UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar goes down February 2, while an international event is set for Fuel TV 14 days later. Another UFC on Fox card is marked for April 20, while Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen will square off a week later from Newark, New Jersey.
"2013 is shaping up to be a huge year for the UFC and we can't wait to bring more great fights to Fox," UFC president Dana White said. "We're going to continue to take the UFC all over the world, putting on the biggest and best fights. Fox is an amazing broadcast partner and we're going to do some big things next year."
Two more Fox events for July 27 and December 14 have also been scheduled, though no city has been determined for either card.
