UFC 166 takes place on Oct. 19 at the Toyota Center in Houston.
Dodson (14-6) is already well established in the Octagon. He won season 14 of The Ultimate Fighter at bantamweight and followed that up with back-to-back victories at flyweight, defeating Tim Elliot and Jussier Formiga.
The only black mark during his UFC tenure was a unanimous decision loss to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson at UFC on Fox 6 in January. That was Dodson’s most recent bout, so he’ll be looking to the Montague fight to get back on the winning track.
Montague (13-2) is unknown to most UFC fans, but is one of the top 125-pounders in the world not yet fighting in the Octagon.
He enters the UFC on a four-fight winning streak, his last loss being to current UFC flyweight Ian McCall nearly two-and-a-half years ago. That loss was the only one in Montague’s last 11 bouts.
