Dodson: Johnson is ducking me

Thursday, June 19, 2014

With his latest win at UFC 174, Demetrious Johnson has a win over every fight ranked in the top five in the flyweight division. John Dodson lost a five round decision to Johnson, but since has won two consecutive fights by TKO and is eying another shot at the flyweight title:

“I heard the press conference, I heard him trying to duck and bob and weave and jive out of a fight with me.  Then he wants to tell everybody he wants to fight everybody but me, telling everybody 'John Dodson's a clown' yet he sounded like a scared little pussycat trying to run away from me. Is he afraid of the big bad wolf?” Dodson told FOX Sports.

“He doesn't think I'm worthy as an opponent? He said he wanted to see him fight (Jussier) Formiga, who I leveled.  They want to see him go blow for blow with Zach Makovsky, who won two fights in the UFC so far. I think I've been on a tear here with a 5-1 streak, and the only person that beat me was Demetrious.  If he doesn't want to fight me, put anybody else in front of me and I'll go toe-to-toe and I'll put them to sleep just like I should have done with him.”
