John Dodson Wanted Flyweight Championship Rematch Months Ago

John Dodson lost a close unanimous decision to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson in January and has been gnawing at the idea of another shot.

“If it were up to me, it’d be right now,” said Dodson to MMA Fighting. “Shoot, I was ready to go last week. Or the week after the fight, I was ready to go. I will get that rematch, and I will win.”

When the champion went down with an injury, the division’s gold was put on hold. Johnson returns on the July 27 UFC on FOX card against John Moraga.

Dodson hasn’t done much since losing that championship contest. There is no word on where he stands when it comes to a title shot.
