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.
