Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson video: UFC 191 promo released for September 5 in Las Vegas

Now that UFC 190 -- which went down last night (Sat., Aug. 1, 2015) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (results here) -- is in the books, it's time to look ahead to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) pay-per-view (PPV) event.

And it's a good one.

It's been a long wait, but John Dodson will finally get his rematch against current UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, when the two go toe-to-toe for the second time in the main event of UFC 191 on Sept. 5, 2015 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The duo initially went at it back in 2013 at UFC on FOX 6, with Johnson defeating Dodson via unanimous decision to defend his 125-pound title.Since then, "Mighty Mouse" has been on a tear, defending his title a whopping five consecutive times.

As for Dodson, he's won three straight since that fateful night, but his road back to the big dance was halted after suffering an ACL injury which kept him on the sidelines for a year. Now, "The Magician" is healthy and ready to dethrone the dominant champion.

UFC 191 will also feature an intriguing heavyweight showdown between Andrei Arlovski and Frank Mir, two longtime veterans who have recently turned back the hands of time to go on a knockout spree inside the Octagon. Also on the card, Anthony Johnson will make his return when he faces off against Jimi Manuwa.

You can expect the promotion to pump out more promotional video for the event as it draws closer, until then, get up to speed with all things UFC 191 by clicking here.
