After Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson (20-2) put on a show against Ali Bagautinov at UFC 174, the UFC is looking for a new fight for Johnson.
“(John) Dodson makes the most sense. Dodson is the man. I thought that fight was awesome. They are two of the fastest guys in the business; both technically sound. I like that fight. I’m not saying that is the next fight we are doing, but I like it.”
Johnson would defend his title three times and won all three of those fights prior to UFC 174. He beat John Dodson via unanimous decision at UFC on Fox 6 – Johnson vs. Dodson on Jan / 26 / 2013, John Moraga via submission at UFC on Fox 8 – Johnson vs. Moraga on Jul / 27 / 2013 and then Joseph Benavidez via knockout at UFC on Fox 9 – Johnson vs. Benavidez 2 on Dec / 14 / 2013.
John Dodson is coming off a win over John Moraga via TKO at UFC Fight Night – Henderson vs. Khabilov on Jun / 07 / 2014.
