UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw and UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson may finally have their super fight later this year.
John Dodson is a fighter who has competed against both champions and he says there is no way Dillashaw can defeat Johnson.
“It’s funny that he wants to fight Demetrious Johnson because if I didn’t beat Demetrious Johnson and he couldn’t beat me, that means he can’t beat him,” Dodson said on a Facebook Q&A. “That’s the way I look at that.”
Dodson suffered a pair of defeats to Johnson at UFC On Fox 6 and UFC 191, but defeated Dillashaw at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale.
If Dodson has his way, a rematch with the UFC Bantamweight Champion will happen in the fighter’s future.
“I’m trying to work that way,” said Dodson. “As soon as I get this win, I’m gonna try to work up that little ladder so I can knock [Dillashaw} down off that pedestal. Everyone’s on this ‘Killashaw’ pedestal and they think that he’s the greatest thing ever but they keep on forgetting this fist knocked him out and knocked him silly. He did the stanky leg, all wobbly. And he’s like, ‘That was luck!’ No, that wasn’t luck. That’s called skill. That’s what people do.”
The bantamweight was set to fight Pedro Munhoz at UFC Fight Night Belem, but Munhoz missed weight and Dodson opted not to battle him.
