TORONTO -- Demetrious (Mighty Mouse) Johnson will make the first defence of his flyweight title against TUF 14 winner John (The Magician) Dodson on a Jan. 26 televised UFC card in Chicago.

Johnson (16-2-1) won the inaugural 125-pound title at UFC 152 when he defeated Joseph Benavidez in September.

Dodson (15-5) won Season 14 of "The Ultimate Fighter" at bantamweight (135 pounds) but dropped to 125 pounds once the flyweight division was added to the UFC. He has won both of his bouts in the new weight class.

The United Center card will also feature a battle of lightweight contenders Donald (Cowboy) Cerrone and Anthony (Showtime) Pettis.
