MMA • Demetrious Johnson successfully defended his flyweight title at UFC Chicago, unanimously outpointing John Dodson in front of a capacity crowd Saturday night at the United Center.
Johnson (17-2-1) started taking control late in fourth round, landing a series of knees to Dodson's head and a series of punches as Dodson (15-6) tired. It continued in the fifth and final round, as Dodson couldn't defend repeated knees to his head.
In what may have been the most anticipated fight of the night, Glover Teixeira topped Rampage Jackson in an unanimous decision in a light heavyweight bout. Jackson, the 34-year-old former light heavyweight champion was taken down in all three rounds, but Teixeira (20-2) couldn't take advantage. Jackson (32-11) got back to his feet every time.
