The fifth fight has officially been added to the Saturday, Jan. 25 UFC on FOX card at the United Center.

Highly-touted undefeated Russian prospect Adam Khaliev will make his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut against 11-2 German fighter Pascal Krauss, UFC officials have confirmed with the Sun-Times.

Khaliev is 6-0 as a pro — with two submissions and two knockouts — and will fight Krauss at welterweight. Krauss is 2-2 in the UFC.

The card is currently headlined by former lightweight title holder Benson Henderson taking on Josh Thomson in the five-round main event.

Plus Darren Elkins faces Jeremy Stephens, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone fights Adriano Martins and Chico Camus takes on Yaotzin Meza.
