Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson to headline UFC on FOX 6

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

Another title fight will headline a FOX card, as the UFC has announced Demetrious Johnson will defend his flyweight belt against John Dodson at UFC on FOX 6 in Chicago.

The UFC is once again putting a title fight on free TV, as Ariel Helwani reported on UFC Tonight that Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will fight John Dodson in the UFC on FOX 6 main event in Chicago, Illinois on January 26th.

It's an interesting choice to say the least, as Mighty Mouse's title fight with Joseph Benavidez was often booed by the crowd at UFC 152, and John Dodson's TKO win over Jussier Formiga was far from exciting and also did not receive much audience enthusiasm.

Mighty Mouse will be in his 2nd free TV title fight, with his other coming against Dominick Cruz at bantamweight, a decision loss that aired on Versus.

Dodson is 2-0 at flyweight and defeated the aforementioned Formiga this past October. He's the season 14 bantamweight winner of TUF.

UFC on FOX 6 is shaping up to be a stacked card, with Quinton Jackson vs. Glover Teixeira and Donald Cerrone vs. Anthony Pettis already booked for this event.
