Things didn’t look too good early for UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson (Pictured), but “Mighty Mouse” managed to recover from multiple knockdowns to beat John Dodson at “UFC on FOX 6.”
There was some controversy in Johnson’s unanimous decision victory, but for once it had nothing to do with the judges. On two separate occasions, Johnson landed accidental illegal knees.
UFC president Dana White didn’t mind the first strike to Dodson’s groin, but he felt the shot to “The Magician’s” face while he was down warranted a point deduction.
Had referee “Big” John McCarthy penalized Johnson, the bout would have resulted in a majority draw and Dodson would have likely been granted an immediate rematch.
Saturday’s event took place inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
