UFC on FX 7: Belfort vs. Bisping fight card

The UFC's first show of 2013 will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the Iberapuera Arena. It's a freebie on FX as the UFC has decided to hold off on a January PPV and wait until Super Bowl weekend. The main event for this card definitely could be a co-main of a PPV, as Vitor Belfort fights Michael Bisping in a five-round middleweight clash. This is realistically the closest Michael Bisping has been to a title shot, and this is his chance to notch consecutive wins over top 10 caliber opponents. Belfort is coming off a spirited LHW title fight against Jon Jones, which nearly saw him pull off a 1st round submission.

MMA legend C.B. Dollaway is in the co-main event against Daniel Sarafian, while Gabriel Gonzaga faces Ben Rothwell in one of the other feature bouts.

The preliminary card is good, but I would by lying if I told you that fights like Justin Salas/Edson Barboza, Wagner Prado/Roger Hollett, and Francisco Trinaldo/C.J. Keith weren't obvious mismatches to send the expected losers out of the UFC.

UFC on FX 7 airs live on ... well ... FX, at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT on January 19th, 2013 and here's how the card currently looks:
