“Too bad if Demetrious doesn’t like that fight…”
In an interview with UFC.com, UFC President Dana White revealed the next likely title fight for the flyweight division is Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson. At the post-fight press conference after UFC 174, Johnson expressed a lack of interest in a rematch with Johnson and talked about wanting new challenges. Below are some highlights.
White on Johnson's UFC 174 performance: "He looked amazing and he looks better every time he fights. He's a guy that's building a division. He's building that division for us. I love the Johnson-Dodson fight."
White on Johnson vs. Dodson II: "Too bad if Demetrious doesn't like that fight, that's the fight he's probably looking at. No doubt about it, that is (potentially) one of the premier match-ups in the UFC this year."
