With Ian McCall out, Scott Jorgensen will now face off with John Dodson at UFC on FOX 9. The two flyweights will face off on the night’s undercard. UFC officials announced the new pairing earlier today.
Dodson comes into the bout after blasting Darrell Montague at UFC 166 earlier this month in his first bout back since losing to UFC flyweight Demetrious Johnson at UFC on FOX 6. The Ultimate Fighter 14 champion has gone 4-1 in the UFC and will look to provide a rude divisional welcome to Scott Jorgensen, who will be making his flyweight debut at UFC on FOX 9.
UFC on FOX 9 will take place in Sacramento, California on December 19 and features UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis against Josh Thomson. The night’s co-main event will see bantamweights Michael McDonald and Urijah Faber face off in a crucial bout in the division. The FOX network event will take place at the Sleep Train Arena (formerly the ARCO Arena), with prelims airing via FOX Sports 1 and Facebook.
