Remember when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was a promotion that only ever broadcasted its main cards on pay-per-view (PPV) and if there was a "Fight of the Year" candidate on the preliminary card you were forced to hope there were quick finishes on the main card so they could squeeze it into the broadcast before going off the air?
Sure don't miss those days.
Now, we get free main card fights on FOX and preliminary card bouts on FX and Facebook. Such is the case with the upcoming UFC on Fox 6: "Johnson vs. Dodson" event scheduled for Sat., Jan. 26, 2013, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
The promotion just recently finalized the bout order. It is as follows:
Main card (FOX):
