Dana White: John Dodson rematch ‘makes the most sense’ for Demetrious Johnson

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

UFC President Dana White revealed after the UFC 174 main event that he liked John Dodson as Demetrious Johnson’s next challenger for the flyweight title.

It appears that John Dodson is once again in line for a title shot.

UFC President Dana White revealed after the UFC 174 main card that John Dodson will likely to be next in line for a flyweight tile shot against "Mighty Mouse." While he would not confirm the match-up, he did make it clear that it was the fight that "makes the most sense," based on their recent results.

"Dodson makes the most sense. Dodson is the man. I thought that fight was awesome. They are two of the fastest guys in the business; both technically sound. I like that fight. I'm not saying that is the next fight we are doing but I like it."

Johnson and Dodson met back in January 2013 in a fight that the champion won convincingly via unanimous decision. Since then, Johnson has defended his title three more times, while Dodson has racked up a two-fight win streak since then.
