And still champion… Demetrious Johnson defeats top contender John Dodson at UFC on Fox 6 in Chicago. After five rounds of speedy action, it was the champ that proved to be the better man. Even after being dropped in the first and in the second, “Mighty Mouse” was able to comeback and prevail in the championship rounds.
It’s the curse of the counter fighter. Dodson may have landed some large blows, but without pushing the action and falling short in the wrestling department, judges saw the bout as a majority Johnson in control.
