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.
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. 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.
