UFC Quick Quote: John Dodson will win his rematch against Demetrious Johnson

UFC flyweight contender John Dodson let the 125-pound championship slip away when he fought Demetrious Johnson earlier this year on FOX, a mistake he vows to not let happen again if and when he's afforded the chance to rematch "Mighty Mouse."

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

"I understand his fighting style. He's technical, he just makes sure he holds a single area and he just sits there. He was talking shit about how I'm just explosive and that's it. Shit, apparently my explosiveness caught him for three of the rounds and he only won two. Well, in everyone else's eyes he won three. But you know what? I'm still a fan of him. I'm a fan of his fighting style because he knows how to recover and actually kind of dictate the pace. It threw me off my game. Fans may not like it, but shit, he came out to fight. 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."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight number one contender, John Dodson, tells MMA Fighting he's not going to let Demetrious Johnson defeat him if and when he's able to secure a rematch against "Mighty Mouse." The question is, will it be for the 125-pound title? Or a chance to become the next in line for a crack at the crown? John Moraga may be the one to determine that, if he's able to defeat Johnson in the main event of UFC on FOX 8 on July 27 in Seattle. In addition, "The Magician" will have to pull a rabbit out of his hat in his next fight if he hopes to erase the memory of his performance in their first go-round, a unanimous decision loss at UFC on FOX 6 earlier this year in Chicago. Anyone think these two are destined to meet again? And who wins if they do?
