Reigning UFC Flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson (22-2-1, 9 Submissions) defends his title for the seventh time against top contender John “The Magician” Dodson (17-6, 8KOs) in the main event of UFC 191 to be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The bout is a rematch of the January 26, 2013 classic in which Johnson battled back from early knockdowns scored by the New Mexico knockout artist to win a razor-thin unanimous decision and retain his belt. Now, a little more than two years later, they will meet again to determine who the true flyweight king is.
In the co-main event, former UFC heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski and Frank Mir collide in a match years in the making while No. 1 light heavyweight contender Anthony “Rumble” Johnson battles British bomber Jimi Manuwa and rising female strawweight star Paige VanZant squares off against Alex Chambers.
