We haven’t heard the last of John Dodson.
That was the message from Dodson and his camp last weekend in the immediate wake of his unanimous-decision loss to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson at UFC 191. The 30-year-old Albuquerque, New Mexico, native known for his boundless energy and mammoth grin wasn’t about to hang his head.
"I'm going to make sure I can come back and come back stronger," Dodson said at the post-fight press conference. "If [UFC president Dana White] gives me the opportunity to beat up a whole bunch of people who seem worthy to fight Demetrious, I will do it. I will make sure that I can make another title run."
Dodson’s determination is admirable—especially since his second loss to Johnson left him in a most unenviable position for the top-ranked 125-pound contender.
