Despite losing to reigning UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson just two years ago, John Dodson (pictured) certainly talked the talk of a confident man leading up to Saturday’s rematch at UFC 191.
Unfortunately for Dodson, Johnson walked the walk when the curtain was drawn.
As always, Johnson was the quicker and faster fighter, but this time, “Mighty Mouse” was also the better assassin. He lit Dodson up in the standup game en route to a runaway (49-46, 49-46, 50-45) unanimous decision victory.
Dodson admitted at the post-fight press conference that his face looks that of a “monster.” His newborn is hoping daddy heals quickly…
The win marked Johnson’s seventh straight title defense.
UFC 191 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
