John Dodson looking to compete in the UFC’s flyweight division

One of the best 125 pounders in the world, John Dodson would love to get the opportunity to showcase his skills inside the octagon, after it was revealed that UFC President, Dana White is considering opening up their own flyweight division.

Dodson, speaking via ProMMANow.com, said:

“To tell you the truth, we were game-planning for me to go to 135. I was walking around close to 160. But Greg called me and said, ‘We’re going back down, I just got an email that they’re going to do 125 in the WEC. When I heard they were doing the UFC-WEC merger, my first thought was, ‘Man, now I’m going to have to wait another year or two.’”

“If I actually got to fight in the UFC, that’d be an all time dream. I’d love to work my way up to a top contender spot or championship.”

“One time I hit a flying knee on a guy but my momentum took me over him; I thought I was going to bust my face, but I ended up walking on my hands a few steps. For me, watching myself in a replay of my fights, it’s kind of a crazy thing. People sometimes come up to me after and say, ‘Can you believe you pulled that off?’ Obviously I can’t watch what I’m doing. I just go out there and do it.”
