5 Quotes from John Dodson on UFC 166 Fight with Darrell Montague

UFC flyweight John Dodson came close to adding a title on his trophy shelf alongside his award for winning TUF 14 when he faced Demetrious Johnson last January. However, “The Magician” couldn’t quite pull off a trick as grand as taking out the sensational 125-pound king and ended up losing a hard-fought decision in the end. The affable 29-year old will take to the Octagon again this weekend at UFC 166 where he’ll face Darrell Montague, possibly positioning himself for another crack at the belt in early 2014 if he looks impressive en route to victory. Dodson recently spoke to about his mental approach to the effort, how he’s evolved since losing to Johnson, and why he knows he has to put on his “big boy pants” come showtime on Saturday night.
