Dodson wants to be 3-division champion
The five-foot-three 125-pounder looks to take the UFC flyweight title from Demetrious (Mighty Mouse) Johnson on Jan. 26. Then, after a few title defences, he plans to go after the bantamweight (135 pounds) and featherweight (145 pounds) championships.
“This is the first step to what I truly want,” Dodson said of his televised showdown with Johnson at the United Centre in Chicago.
“I want to hold all those three titles at 125, ’35 and ’45. If I can do that, that would be amazing. Then I can die a happy man.”
The 28-year-old mixed martial arts fighter from New Mexico believes the three divisions are close enough in weight for him to do it.
“I want to be the first guy to do it,” he said. “A lot of people sit there and talk about it but I want to be able to do it. I want to go out there and put that mark on that wall … I can dominate the sport. I believe I can do this.”
