Mighty Mouse Set To Defend Flyweight Championship At UFC 191

Posted by on 8/28/2015 12:10:25 AM

UFC Flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson will put his title on the line for the seventh time when he takes on John Dodson for the second time in his career at the UFC 191 event. Johnson managed to hold on for a unanimous decision win over Dodson that also earned Fight of the Night honors in his first-ever UFC Flyweight title defense back in January of 2013 and now more than two years later the two best fighters in that division are set to clash one more time at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 5th.

UFC Flyweight Championship Bout

(22-2-1) Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson (17-6-0)

Johnson has absolutely dominated the UFC flyweight division as the champion and No. 1 ranked fighter with several records. Johnson owns the record for most takedowns in UFC flyweight history as well as the record for the latest finish in UFC history and is the only fighter in the promotion’s history to record 10 or more takedowns in three different fights. Dodson pushed him as hard as he could in their first meeting back in 2012 and came up just short but he has won three fights since including knockout wins over Darrell Montague and John Moraga and he is ready for this rematch. There is no doubt that anything can happen when these two are in the Octagon but Johnson has been too dominant as the champion to write him off in this fight so we will stick with the Mighty Mouse to find a way to get the job done and come out on top with another successful title defense versus Dodson.

Pick: Johnson

UFC Heavyweight Bout

(24-10-0) Andrei Arlovski vs. Frank Mir (18-9-0)

Arlovski has enjoyed somewhat of a career revival over the past couple of years with five straight wins including consecutive knockout victories over Antonio Silva and Travis Browne to become the No. 4 ranked heavyweight fighter in the UFC. Arlovski could move one step closer to another shot at the championship by taking down Mir, who despite somewhat of a revival of his own with wins over Silva and Todd Duffee might not be able to match up with Arlovski. Both fighters have incredible punching power and that should lead to plenty of excitement in this co-main event bout but look for Arlovski to find a way to come out on top and continue his excellent run with a sixth straight victory.

Pick: Andrei Arlovski

UFC Light Heavyweight Bout

(19-5-0) Anthony Johnson vs. Jimi Manuwa (15-1-0)

Johnson had forced his way up the UFC light heavyweight ladder by dominating the rest of the division before he was stopped dead in his tracks by Daniel Cormier with the title on the line at UFC 187. Cormier submitted Johnson to hand him his first loss since UFC 142 back in January of 2012 but there is every reason to expect Johnson to bounce back in this matchup. Manuwa has managed to climb the rankings thanks to some close decision wins but he looks overmatched by Johnson in this one.

Pick: Anthony Johnson

Light Heavyweight Bout

(18-4-0) Jan Blachowicz vs. Corey Anderson (5-1-0)

Anderson had won five straight bouts before he was knocked out by Glan Villante in his last tilt and he will be in tough to bounce back as the underdog against Blachowicz. Both fighters have some decent punching power but Blachowicz is the better bet for this UFC light heavyweight fight.

Pick: Jan Blachowicz

UFC Women’s Strawweight Bout

(5-1-0) Paige VanZant vs. Alex Chambers (5-2-0)

VanZant is a rising star in the UFC women’s strawweight division and there is every reason to believe that she should dominate her next bout against Chambers as the substantial favorite. VanZant is coming off consecutive wins over Kailin Curran and Felice Herrig and there is no reason to expect Chambers to upset here in this bout.

Pick: Paige Van Zant
