Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Demetrious Johnson has emerged as the world's best flyweight with a win over Joseph Benavidez, but there are a number of 125-pound fighters looking to take the belt that hangs around his waist. 

At UFC on FX 6, Johnson's first challenger will likely be determined in a bout between John Dodson and UFC newcomer Jussier da Silva.

Only one can earn the title shot against Johnson, so let's take a look at where the advantages lie for Dodson and Da Silva heading into this matchup.
