Demetrious Johnson defended the flyweight title in the UFC on Fox 6 main event, but that was far from the only notable victory to occur during Saturday's fight card from the United Center in Chicago.

In a lightweight bout with Donald Cerrone, Anthony Pettis landed a hard kick to the body that led to his third straight win. 

Once promised a UFC title shot after beating current champion Benson Henderson to become the final WEC lightweight titleholder, Pettis lost his spot in a championship bout by losing to Clay Guida. Now that he is once again on a roll, Pettis feels he is deserving of that title shot he was once in line to get.

In his post-fight interview with UFC commentator Joe Rogan on the Fox-televised event, Pettis said, "Hey, Dana White, what do I gotta do for this title shot?"

Pettis wasn't the only fighter to make a case for a title shot on the UFC on Fox 6 main card, though. 

Ricardo Lamas also picked up a big win by finishing Erik Koch with ground-and-pound in the second round of a featherweight matchup. With that, the 30-year-old has won four straight fights, including victories over Hatsu Hioki and Cub Swanson.

With 145-pound champion Jose Aldo set to defend his title against Frankie Edgar next weekend, Lamas may have put himself in the front of the line for a shot at UFC gold in mid-2013.
