UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Dodson (also known as UFC on Fox 6) was a mixed martial arts event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on January 26, 2013 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.[2][3]

Background[edit]

A bout between Erik Koch and Ricardo Lamas, previously linked to UFC 155, was moved to this event to bolster the main card.[4]

Buddy Roberts was expected to face Michael Kuiper at the event. However, Roberts was forced out of the bout with an illness and was replaced by promotional newcomer Josh Janousek.[5] Then just days before the event, Janousek himself pulled out of the bout citing an injury. With no time to find a suitable replacement for Kuiper, he was pulled from the event as well.[6]

Magnus Cedenblad was expected to face Rafael Natal at the event but was forced out of the bout with an injury and replaced by promotional newcomer Sean Spencer.[7]
