Demetrious Johnson is set to defend the UFC flyweight title for the first time, and he will try to do so against The Ultimate Fighter winner John Dodson in the UFC on Fox 6 main event.
After beating Ian McCall in the semifinals of a four-man tournament to crown the UFC's first-ever 125-pound champion, Johnson won the belt in a close fight with Joseph Benavidez.
Dodson, meanwhile, quickly climbed the ranks of the developing flyweight division with wins over Jussier Formiga and Tim Elliott.
In addition to the flyweight title fight, UFC on Fox 6 will also feature a number of important fights across multiple divisions.
Following wins in his first two UFC bouts, Glover Teixeira will try to prove he is a light heavyweight contender with a win over Quinton Jackson. Also, title shots could be on the line in a lightweight bout between Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone, as well as a featherweight fight between Erik Koch and Ricardo Lamas.
To promote UFC on Fox 6, which will be held at the United Center in Chicago, a pre-fight press conference will be held on Thursday at 2 p.m. ET. Event headliners Johnson, Dodson, Jackson, Teixeira, Pettis, Cerrone, Koch and Lamas will likely join UFC president Dana White for the presser.
Video of the press conference will be streamed live on the above video player. After the presser, stay tuned to Bleacher Report MMA for all the latest on UFC on Fox 6 and the rest of your MMA needs.
