UFC 191: Johnson vs. Dodson 2 schedule and viewing guide
Demetrious Johnson has run through almost every contender in the flyweight division, but John Dodson remains the person who pushed him the furthest and now the two top-ranked fighters will meet for the second time in the main event of UFC 191.
Dodson came close to finishing Johnson during their first encounter when he dropped the champion with a punch but couldn’t quite put him away. Johnson battled back and pulled off a unanimous decision victory, but now to hold onto his belt he has to do it all over again.
Also on the card this weekend, former heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski and Frank Mir face off in a fight more than 10 years in the making. These two legends were first supposed to meet all the way back in 2005, but now, a decade later, Arlovski and Mir are still ranked in the top 10 and ready to face off this weekend.
Paige VanZant also gets back in action at UFC 191, where she’ll take on former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ veteran Alex Chambers in an interesting matchup at 115 pounds.
