“I thought I won three [rounds], man,” he admitted. “In my mind, I thought I had the first three rounds, and then when I watched it, I still thought I had the first three rounds. Because it was the third round where he took me down. I slipped and I fell, and he sat on top of me, and then I stood right back up. I was like, come on, come at me again. I actually dropped him in that third round, and you guys don’t count that. You guys count him coming and landing on top on me as more impressive than me dropping him.”
“If it were up to me, it’d be right now. Shoot, I was ready to go last week. Or the week after the fight, I was ready to go.
“I wanted to go right away, but since [Johnson] already has a fight, I don’t care who I have to fight to lead up to that. I’m going to go back there, I’m going to win every one of my next fights including my next title fight. I will get that rematch, and I will win.”
Top UFC flyweight, John Dodson, gave the UFC champion Demetrious Johnson all he could handle in their five-round title fight, but came up short.
Now, in this recent interview with MMAFighting.com, the Greg Jackson trained fighter vows his return through the ranks and capturing of UFC gold.
Can he do it?
