Thanks for joining us with preliminary action already in progress for tonight’s free UFC fight, AKA UFC on FOX 6. My apologies for the delay, but I’m having some technical difficulties with my sinuses and let’s just say some boogers are throwing knees at my brains right now. Sexy, right? Right. Let’s get on with the chatty action, shall we?Tonight’s fight should be a doozie, with the main main event featuring Demetrious Johnson defending his Flyweight championship against John Dodson in what promises to be one hell of an exciting fight between two guys who are much, much skinnier than me. In the other main event, Rampage Jackson makes his return to the octagon to fight Glover Texeira, and let’s just say that the man who brought B.A. Baracus to the big screen is less than excited about tonight’s fight. He’s basically just doing this to earn some extra coin, and that’s a little depressing. But I guess that’s the nature of the beast or something.Other than those matchups, tonight’s car...

The old saw in mixed martial arts is that the lighter weight classes (anything below welterweight; especially anything below lightweight) just don't catch the common fan's interest. They won't sell pay-per-views, and they won't draw viewers to free TV telecasts. But perhaps things are about to change. Last night's UFC on Fox telecast, headlined by Demetrious...
The UFC returned to Chicago with an outstanding fight card that featured an array of stoppages and several upsets mixed into the action. Flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson survived an early scare to win a unanimous decision over Dodson to retain his title. In the co-main event, Glover Teixiera dominated former champ Quinton Jackson en route to a decision victory.
A little bit of controversy in this fight with the lame hand on the ground rule and lots of fans saying they felt Dodson won the first 3 rounds, but it was a great fight. These guys will face each other again.

Congratulations to Shemp DeYoung who won our UFC on Fox: Johnson vs Dodson Pick 'Em Contest. And congratulations also to Jesse Mejia for being January's monthly winner. Our next Pick 'Em Contest will be for UFC 156 this coming Saturday. Thanks for playing!
Rampage seemed humbled by what Glover did to him last night and who knows what’s next for Rampage, but it’s clear he can’t hang with the upper level fighters in the division. Still entertaining and always a draw, someone will pay him to fight.
