[VIDEO] Demetrious Johnson Speaks on His Win Over John Dodson
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.27.2013



UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson talked about his win over John Dodson on Fuel TV's post-fight show for UFC on Fox 6:

Johnson on if he was confident about winning the decision before the scores were announced: "I felt pretty confident. The first couple rounds were hard and he threw some stuff that I wasn't ready for and I had to dig deep and pull through and keep the pressure on him."

Johnson on Dodson and his speed and getting dropped: "He was fast. I wasn't just following the game plan, I was getting too greedy and I was dealing wrong with him. I got caught and just relaxed, breathed and pull through it...No. Anybody can be fast in the first round, trust me. My wife is fast in the first round. But it's a five-round fight and you have to be fast in all five rounds and I am....I got dazed. I've been dazed before by Dominick Cruz with a knee to the face and I just dug deep. It's going to happen."

Johnson on if fighting in championship rounds gave him an edge: "Going five rounds with Dominick Cruz, Joseph Benavidez, Ian McCall. That stuff has all helped me earn my belt. And now going five rounds with a guy who is close to my speed helps me out a lot. That's the stuff that other guys have to look forward to when they fight me."

Johnson on the illegal knee: "The first time I put my knee to his head, I couldn't tell because I was looking at the back of his head. After the first time I got warned, I apologized about that. I could feel his pressure and he has to move. It's not checkers – it's chess damn it!"

Johnson his champion aura: "I'm just a hard worker and I know I have a lot of stuff to improve on. I'm ready to go back home and get ready for the next fight."

Johnson on what is next: "That's not my decision. What's next for me is to go home, relax, work on my knockout power, work on my clinch game and work on everything."
