“Demetrious Johnson is doing something that a lot of people should be doing, just backing it up by fighting,” No. 1 ranked contender John Dodson recently told MMAFighting.com. “He’s showcasing his ability to be a true champion by being able to finish by strikes, submissions, or a winning decision without squeaking by anybody.
“With that being said, him not being able to pop kind of ruins it for all of us. That’s why we all need to step up as athletes and start doing it ourselves. If the division wants to have some limelight, then we need to start having some other fighters who can present that opportunity. It doesn’t matter if we’re a champion or not.”
