‘UFC on FOX 6′ Announced With Flyweight Title Fight, Cerrone vs. Pettis; Rampage/Teixeira Also Reported

(…sit back there and say his jacket ain’t luxurious when you know it is, bitch.)

The UFC announced yesterday that its next UFC on FOX event — slated for January 26 at Chicago’s United Center — will be headlined by Demetrious Johnson‘s first flyweight title defense against TUF 14 winner John Dodson. Dodson has gone 2-0 at 125 pounds since his stint on the reality show, including his recent TKO of top contender Jussier Formiga.

But hey, maybe you don’t care about that sort of thing. Luckily, the UFC also confirmed that UFC on FOX 6 will feature the long-rumored lightweight tilt (and possible #1 contender match) between Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis, a guaranteed barnburner for which Cerrone has already promised to “pack a lunch.” Considering that Pettis has been out of action since February due to injuries, Cowboy might be the favorite here. Of course if he wins, Cerrone could be booked against a guy who already beat him twice in the WEC, or a guy who punked him as badly as any UFC fighter has ever been punked — which makes us wonder if this is one of those “#1 contender match for one guy but not necessarily the other”-type scenarios.

But wait, there’s more…

Though it hasn’t been formally announced by the promotion yet, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson let the cat out of the bag via twitter that his match against Glover Teixeira is a go for the 1/26 event. The two light-heavyweight bangers were originally supposed to meet at UFC 153 in Rio, but Rampage injured his elbow before the match, which has given him a lot of free time to complain and complain and complain.

Just like December’s UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz card, it’s a pay-per-view caliber lineup that we’ll be getting for free. Early predictions: Johnson/Dodson goes to decision, Cerrone/Pettis wins Fight of the Night, and Rampage blames his impending loss on an injury. Fine, call me a hater — but see if I’m wrong.

Did Dana get tired of smelling his own ass? Because these stacked cards have me thinking he pulled his head out of there.
Loving these matchups! Reminds me of the good ol' days... All the way back in 2009.

Fred... Better than staging it on a floating barge somewhere offshore to avoid paying taxes. The name would've been cool and all(UFC 160: International Waters), but we'd get seasick just watching.

Pshhh. You think hose predictions are even close to right? You're smoking. For one, you didn't even mention one of these guys getting injured and pulling out. I predict two will. Rampage because he wants NOTHING to do with Glover no matter how much he flaps his gums. And Pettis will go down as well. Too long of a layoff, and gets a legit injury in camp. You might be right on the flyweight title fight though.

From what I've heard on Facebook, it's likely that this and all UFC events in the USA will be canceled or moved to Canada or Australia. Zuffa will go out of business thanks to all the taxes Obama is going to introduce.
