Shortly after Rampage Jackson bids a bitter farewell to the UFC on Saturday night, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger John Dodson will introduce themselves to a national audience.

Chicago's United Center will be a crossroads for several fighters getting together in the UFC's latest show on Fox.

Johnson's first title defense against Dodson is the main event, but the 125-pounders realize they could be upstaged by bigger guys. Jackson is making what he says is his final UFC appearance against Brazil's feared Glover Teixeira, while crowd-pleasing lightweight contenders Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis meet on the televised undercard.

Johnson (16-2-1), better known as Mighty Mouse, believes the flyweights still will put on a show worth watching.
