UFC on FOX 6: Demetrious Johnson Outscores John Dodson, Glover Teixeira Sends “Rampage” Jackson Into Free Agency With Defeat
By FCF Staff
UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson survived a couple of early knockdowns tonight in Chicago, Illinois, to launch a comeback and outscore John Dodson through the remainder of their five round fight. Despite being tagged by the powerful Dodson on a couple of occasions, Johnson turned to his wrestling, and then later, hard knees from the clinch to earn the title defence.
“Rampage” Jackson was unable to secure a victory in the final bout of his current UFC contract, as the former light-heavyweight champ fell by unanimous decision to the rising Glover Teixeira. Although Jackson put on a determined effort, the charismatic fighter was unable to match the striking game of Glover or defend several of the Brazilian’s takedown attempts.
At lightweight, former WEC champion Anthony Pettis made an emphatic case for a rematch with current UFC champ Benson Henderson, by quickly putting away Donald Cerrone with a thumping kick to the body.
