Dodson: ‘My Face Looked Like Dos Anjos After The DJ Fight’

September 8, 2015 6:50 am by BJPENN.COM News


UFC flyweight John Dodson came up short against the champ, Demetrious Johnson, at UFC 191, again.

The two fought before and in that fight Dodson was able to drop the champ a few times early on, but ultimately lost a decision. This time around he was barely able to get his hands on him. However, Johnson was able to get his hands on Dodson pretty frequently.

By the end of the fight it was clear Dodson got beat up, all you had to do was look at his face.

At the post fight press conference Dodson was asked about the fight and he said Johnson landed a lot more and was more aggressive.

He also sort of threw a jab at UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, who will fight his teammate Donald Cerrone.

Here’s what he had to say:

“Both of us have evolved, and we’ve shown that. We’ve shown that he has more aggressive power coming at me, and he landed a lot more shots to my face. I look like a monster. I look like (Rafael) dos Anjos.

“But, hindsight, I can come back stronger. Since everybody keeps talking about this glass ceiling, I’m going to break through it. I’m going to make sure that I come back and come back stronger. If Dana (White) gives me the opportunity to go ahead and beat up a bunch of people that seem worthy to fight Demetrious, I will do it, and I will make sure I can make another title run at this again.”
