A third fight has been added to the recently-announced Jan. 26, 2013, UFC on FOX 6 event at the United Center in Chicago, Ill.: a lightweight bout between Matt Wiman and T.J. Grant. The event was announced on UFC Canada's Twitter feed.

Wiman, 29, is on a two-fight win streak in the UFC. He most recently defeated Paul Sass by armbar at UFC on FUEL TV 5 in September of this year.

Grant, 28, is on a three-fight win streak since dropping to lightweight after spending the majority of his career at welterwight. He last competed at UFC 152 in September where he defeated Evan Dunham by unanimous decision.

UFC on FOX 6 will be headlined by a flyweight title fight between champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger, as well as winner of season 14 of Spike TV's 'The Ultimate Fighter' at bantamweight, John Dodson.

Also scheduled for the event, top lightweight contenders and WEC alums Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis will face off in a bout expected to be placed on the main card.
