Demetrious Johnson on John Dodson call out: 'I don't even know why they gave that fool a mic'

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

In addition, "Mighty Mouse" would rather rematch Brad Pickett or take on ex-Bellator champion Zach Makovsky, rather than "The Magician," a "challenge he already overcame."

"Everybody in my house was embarrassed. I had a headache. I was like, 'I don't even know why they gave that fool a mic.' They were embarrassed, like 'That guy looks like a freakin' clown.' Even if I were to beat him again, I would still have to hear that. That's the unfortunate thing. That's John Dodson for ya'. That's his personality. Nice guy, I have nothing against him, but at the end of the day, I didn't get fired up, because my main focus is on Ali Bagautinov."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight titleholder Demetrious Johnson (via MMA Fighting) was not impressed with John Dodson's call out after "The Magician" defeated John Moraga at the UFC Fight Night 42 event last weekend (Sat., June 14, 2014) on FOX Sports 1 (recap). Partly because he thinks "The Magician" is a "fool," but mostly because "Mighty Mouse" is focused on his upcoming title defense against Ali Bagautinov in the main event of UFC 174 (results here). And if Johnson can turn away "Puncher King" in Vancouver, he has some other names in mind for the future, and neither of them fight out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Got a problem with that?
