The UFC has released a major portion of its 2013 schedule including all of the UFC on Fox events and the location UFC: Jones vs. Sonnen.

Starting in January, the UFC will first head to Brazil on Jan. 19 for the UFC on FX 7 card headlined by former light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort as he faces Michael Bisping in a middleweight showdown.

From there, UFC on Fox 6 will land back in Chicago at the United Center on Jan. 26. The UFC held its second ever Fox show in Chicago last January as well, and they will return to the Midwest with another card as the first month of the year closes out.

UFC 156 will then land in Las Vegas for Jose Aldo vs. Frankie Edgar, which takes place Feb. 2 during Super Bowl weekend at Mandalay Bay Events Center.

On Feb. 16, the UFC will hold an international show, currently slated as a UFC on Fuel TV event, although no location has been announced as of yet. All that is known currently is that it will take place outside the United States.

Moving on to April 20, the next UFC on Fox show will take place at that time, with a location to be determined.

That leads directly to April 27 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., where UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones faces Chael Sonnen. The two will first serve as coaches on the newest season of The Ultimate Fighter and then square off in New Jersey as part of a UFC pay-per-view headed to the east coast.

The two final dates announced on Monday are the other UFC on Fox cards set to go down on July 27 and Dec. 14, respectively. Both dates are set, but again locations are to be determined at a later date.

“2013 is shaping up to be a huge year for the UFC and we can’t wait to bring more great fights to FOX!” said UFC president Dana White. “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.”

Additional dates and cards will be announced in the coming months, as well, but this will serve as a beginning outline for the UFC cards landing on Fox, along with a location for what promises to be one of the biggest shows of the year.
