John Dodson vs. Scott Jorgensen booked for UFC on Fox 9

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

With Ian McCall out with an injury, hard-hitting flyweight John Dodson steps in to fight Scott Jorgensen at UFC on Fox 9 in Sacramento.

Long time bantamweight Scott Jorgensen is making the move to MetroPCS flyweight, and while he was set to debut against Ian McCall at UFC on Fox 9, those plans have changed. McCall is recovering from a hand injury, so the UFC has replaced "Uncle Creepy" with John Dodson:

Dodson (15-6) made Darrell Montague's UFC debut a miserable one, as he used his powerful fists to send him into a late 1st round face-planting KO. It was Dodson's 3rd finish in 4 UFC victories, and he's arguably one of the pound-for-pound most powerful punchers in the sport.

Jorgensen (14-7) has lost 3 of his last 4, including a 4th round submission loss against Urijah Faber in April. The former WEC bantamweight title challenger has lost to Dominick Cruz, Eddie Wineland, Renan Barao, and the aforementioned Faber over the past 3 years. Jorgensen is known for his great chin, having been (T)KOed just once in his MMA career vs. Wineland last year.

UFC on Fox 9 takes place in Sacramento, California, where Anthony Pettis makes his first lightweight title defense against Josh Thomson.
