I've got this fight even coming into the final round. They're in the deep water now. Historically, Johnson has thrived here.
They trade in the middle. Surprise! Johnson is pressing the action. He clinches Dodson then drops for the takedown and hits it. That's five takedowns for Johnson to zero for Dodson.
DJ has him smushed against the fence. Dodson still kicking but tired. He's trying to struggle to his feet. They're up now against the fence and Dodson is forcing him against the fence.
They're in the center and not landing much. Johnson lands a right and then another. Now Dodson shoots in but Johnson stuffs it. Dodson gets him down but it wasn't emphatic. Johnson wriggling out. Two minutes to go.
They're back up. Left jab from DJ. Another takedown attempt from Dodson stuffed. Johnson darts in and they clinch up. Johnson lands a hard knee. They're against the fence and Johnson's landing big uppercuts. Well, "big," anyway. More knees.
Thai plumm for Johnson and he's banging Dodson's face with knees. Dodson's bloody. Thirty seconds left. Dodson with a half-hearted knee. The plumm again for Johnson and he's banging home those knees. Fight ends.
