Chicago will host its first UFC title fight since UFC 90. On "UFC Insider," it was reported flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson will defend his belt for the first time at UFC on Fox 6 on Jan. 26. He'll fight John Dodson at the United Center.

Johnson's last fight was a five-round win over Joseph Benavidez. He'll take on Dodson, a Jackson's MMA-trained winner of "The Ultimate Fighter."

Joining them on the card will be Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis. After a long layoff due to surgery and illness, Pettis will fight close to home. The United Center is just 95 miles from Pettis' training home in Milwaukee.

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson also says that he is on the card, though that has not been confirmed:
