On Thursday, the world’s most prestigious mixed martial arts promotion confirmed seven fights for their first FOX show of 2013. “UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Dodson” takes place January 26th and features a flyweight title tilt between freshly crowned champion Demetrious Johnson (Pictured) and John Dodson. A light heavyweight shootout with former champ Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Glover Teixeira co-headline the gig. The grudge match between Anthony Pettis and Donald Cerrone will also appear in the FOX broadcast. It’s possible the promotion will add one additional scrap to the main card in the coming weeks.
