Johnson-Dodson II Set for September 5

The biggest flyweight fight in the world will be heading to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, September 5, as Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson defends his title for the seventh time against John "The Magician" Dodson in the main event of UFC 191.
 
The bout is a rematch of a 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 title.
 
Two years later, Johnson has become one of the most dominant champions in the UFC, and a high-ranking member of the pound-for-pound list, while Dodson has won three straight in order to earn another shot at a world championship.
 
Also announced for the event were three more explosive bouts:
 
In main card action, the number one-ranked light heavyweight in the world, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, makes his first start since his May title bout against Daniel Cormier when he faces off with Polish star Jan Blachowicz.
 
Plus, female strawweight sensation Paige VanZant will seek her third straight UFC victory, as she battles Australia's Alex Chambers, fresh from a come-from-behind win over Kailin Curran.
 
Also traveling to Vegas in September will be former flyweight contender John Lineker, who will make his bantamweight debut against fellow heavy-handed slugger Francisco Rivera.
