The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas this week for UFC 191, which features a flyweight headliner pitting champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson in a rematch against John Dodson, along with a heavyweight showdown that could land the winner in a title fight.
Johnson and Dodson first met in the main event of UFC on FOX 6, where Mighty Mouse validated his UFC flyweight belt by defending it for the first time against the division’s top contender. He’ll attempt to do that one more time when they step in the Octagon opposite one another on Saturday night.
Former UFC heavyweight titleholders Andrei Arlvoski and Frank Mir were supposed to have fought a decade ago, but circumstances being what they were nixed the fight. But now, two of the longest running active heavyweights in the sport will finally square off in the UFC 191 co-main event, with a possible title shot hanging in the balance.
