Dodson: I will get that rematch, and I will win

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Back in January flyweight John Dodson dropped a five round decision to champion Demetrious Johnson. The fight was super close with Dodson dominating the first two rounds and the champion working his way back to take the final three frames, however Dodson believes he won the third and thus the fight. Either way, Dodson is likely on a short listed of title contenders and is ready to go with Johnson again:

The list of contenders at flyweight isn’t the longest, so Dodson’s road back to the title may be shorter than most fallen challengers. But he’s ready for whatever the UFC wants to throw at him, regardless if it’s a year from now, next month, or next week.

“If it were up to me, it’d be right now,” Dodson finished with a grin. “Shoot, I was ready to go last week. Or the week after the fight, I was ready to go.

“I wanted to go right away, but since [Johnson] already has a fight, I don’t care who I have to fight to lead up to that. I’m going to go back there, I’m going to win every one of my next fights including my next title fight. I will get that rematch, and I will win.”
