Dodson holds a 9-40 record under the UFC banner, while holding an overall record of 20-9-0 as a professional MMA fighter. Those nine wins Dodson has earned in the UFC came over UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw, Tim Elliott, Jussier Formiga, Darrell Montague, John Moraga, Zach Makovsky, Manny Gamburyan, Eddie Wineland and the aforementioned Pedro Munhoz.

Even though Dodson is back competing at bantamweight, one thing the fighter has done wa challenge for the UFC Flyweight Title on two separate occasions, losing to Demetrious Johnson at UFC On Fox 6 and UFC 191. Dodson was also the winner of the UFC Ultimate Fighter 14, defeating the previously mentioned TJ Dillashaw by first round TKO.

There is no word yet on when the newly re-signed Dodson could be stepping back in the Octagon to fight again or whom that opponent could be when a bout does come together in the future.
