With less than five days remaining until the curtain is drawn on the UFC’s final FOX show of 2012, the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion announced a pair of scraps for their first primetime event of 2013. On Monday evening, a light heavyweight affair between Ryan Bader (Pictured) and Vladimir Matyushenko and welterweight clash with David Mitchell and Simeon Thoresen was added to the “UFC on FOX: Johnson vs. Dodson” roster. Both fights will likely appear in the prelims. FX will air the preliminary card live beginning at 5PM ET/2PM PT. FOX then broadcasts the card’s showcase bouts immediately after at 8PM ET/5PM PT. United Center in Chicago, Illinois hosts the January 26th festivities. A flyweight title tilt between freshly crowned champion Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson headlines the freebie fight card. Here is the show’s current lineup: Preliminary Card: David Mitchell vs. Simeon Thoresen Magnus Cedenblad vs. Rafael Natal Pascal Krauss vs. Mike Stumpf T.J.
