Dodson Eyeing Rematch With Dillashaw At 135

John Dodson

“Apparently I’m the bogeyman to the 125 division and I don’t even know why. Well, actually I do know why. My hands say it all. But, everybody is afraid of what I can potentially bring to the table, and that includes Demetrious Johnson. He’s afraid that I have that one-punch knockout that will change him from being the champion to being the number-one contender.”

“If it was such a fluke (his KO over UFC bantamweight champion Dillashaw), then give that fluke some reality. Prove that shot was lucky shot. Prove it wasn’t a pinpoint accurate shot that landed clear on your jaw and dropped you, that you weren’t wobbling after Herb Dean picked you up off the mat.

“I think I’m the bogeyman at 125 and 135. Even that champion doesn’t want to fight me. I have a whole team afraid of me.”

In a recent interview with MMAFighting.com‘s Shaun Al-Shatti, former flyweight title challenger John Dodson discussed re-matching the current bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw.

Was their original run-in a fluke, or does Dodson have TJ’s number?
