UFC on FOX 6 in Chicago quickly taking shape

We reported earlier this week that UFC officials had made several fight announcements for the UFC on FOX 6 event that will take place in Chicago on January 26th.

UFC officials have announced two more fights for the event. Clay Guida will make his featherweight debut against Hatsu Hioki, and Shawn Jordan will do battle with Mike Russow in a heavyweight fight.

Guida (29-13) has been out of action since losing a split decision to Gray Maynard in June. He’ll make his featherweight debut against a top ten featherweight in Hatsu Hioki (26-5-2) who was last in action on the same card, losing a unanimous decision against Ricardo Lamas.

Jordan (13-4) is coming off a lackluster unanimous decision loss against Cheick Kongo at UFC 149. He’ll be taking on Mike Russow who lost via first round TKO against top five heavyweight Fabricio Werdum at UFC 147.

UFC on FOX 6 will be headlined by the UFC flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson and will take place at the United Center. This will be Johnson’s first title defense since winning the inaugural title against Joseph Benavidez at UFC 152.

The UFC on FOX 6 fight card thus far is below:

  • Demetrious Johnson¬† vs.¬† John Dodson
