The next major UFC on Fox show headed to Chicago will feature a flyweight title fight pitting champion Demetrious Johnson against top contender John Dodson.

UFC on Fox 6 will take place on Jan. 26 from the United Center in Chicago. UFC officials announced the bout via UFC Tonight on Tuesday.

Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson won the inaugural 125-pound title in September when he picked up a unanimous decision victory over Joseph Benavidez.

Now the Washington native will put the flyweight belt on the line for the first time ever, while also headlining the next major UFC on Fox card.

Opposing Johnson in Chicago will be Ultimate Fighter season 14 winner John Dodson.

The Team Jackson/Winkeljohn fighter earned the title shot with back-to-back wins at flyweight including his last victory over former top ranked 125-pounder Jussier Da Silva.

Now Dodson will look to become the latest Ultimate Fighter winner to wrap gold around their waist in the UFC.

    Great fight. I didn’t understand why Dodson wasn’t in the flyweight tourney, I think he’ll beat Mighty.

    • Mark McDowall

      Agreed…hopefully its better than the first title fight.

    • Jbyrdd

    I cant stand Dodson. He acts and looks like a stupid monkey when he wins.

    • onehitwonder

    This fight doesn’t excite me, the first title fight wasn’t great and this will prob be the same

  • b-soc

    One things for sure, this fight will look like it is in X3 speed. They are pretty much the two fastest guys in the UFC.

    jojo, I didn’t realize monkey’s could be classified like that!

      I watched the flyweight title fight in Toronto. No offense to the little guys but it was pretty boring. Half the audience was booing, the other half took the 25 minute opportunity to get a snack or a beer
