Weight Class:

Now that the inaugural flyweight belt belongs to Demetrious Johnson, "Mighty Mouse" is stacked with the task of defending it -- and what a spot to do his first title defense in. Johnson will defend his title against John Dodson on Jan. 26 in Chicago on a nationally televised main event. Dodson is a super-charged acrobat who throws leather with a big smile on his face. Johnson has become one of the game's most well rounded talents. It's a showcase of little men in a big-time spot. Meanwhile, Joseph Benavidez and Ian McCall will dust-up in February at UFC 156, and John Moraga moves up in this week's Power Rankings with his victory over Chris Cariaso at UFC 155.
