If Dodson fights the way he usual does, and not as flat footed as he did tonight (although a good strategy), I might edge him over Mighty Mouse actually. He's a little slower and has a little less movement, but A LOT more power.

With the exception of the one punch, this fight was quite possibly one of the most boring fights I've ever seen.

Johnson should be a big favorite over this kid.

Dodson just needs to corner him, I don't know who has more power him or Joe B, but I really want Dodson to win that strap.
You and me both. I've been hoping Dodson would get a title shot in the flyweight division. Like you said, he's as close as it's gonna get in terms of speed compared to Johnson, a guy who is the fastest guy in his weight class. Dodson has so much power though for a flyweight, has never been finished in pro MMA career, and is incredibly tough. He broke his hand early against Elliot, but he still clearly had the advantage regardless of that.

Here's to hoping he gets that belt!

Those flips are pretty damn acrobatic. Suitable nicknames "Joker," "he who laughs a lot" or "midget black foot."

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
