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.
