When Dodson fought for the title the only guy in that division who didn't almost win the title was Louis Gaudinot. So no.
Hey he was a ref's call away from being champion due to the illegal knee (he had won the rounds), and he was like 30 seconds of action in rounds 3 or 5 from getting the decision.
He came closer to winning the big one than say Michael Bisping who still needs to win the fight leading up to the big one to get to fight he big one. Dodson was better than Benavidez and Dodson and is frankly in my eyes the highest ranked TUF winner in the UFC today.
