Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues to expand their flyweight division with their latest signing: Darrell Montague. Montague is expected to make his debut for the promotion against John Dodson at UFC 166 on October 19, 2013 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Dodson last challenged for the UFC's Flyweight title against Demetrious Johnson on Fox, losing a unanimous decision to the champion. Dodson, is 3-1 in the UFC, with a notable finish of Jussier De Silva at UFC on FX 5 in 2012.

Montague is considered on of the top flyweight prospects in the world, and is well known with fans who have followed the flyweight circuit. He's a former Tachi Palace champion and holds notable wins over Ulysses Gomez and Mamoru Yamaguchi.

This is a great debut fight for Montague and it should show that the UFC has high hopes for him as he's being thrown directly into the deep end of the division.
