 Johnson edges Dodson, defends title
posted 4 years ago

The 2014 Super Bowl Odds are now posted. Champion Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson and top contender John Dodson said speed would not be the determining factor in their flyweight title bout on Saturday night at the United Center.
 
They were correct.
 
It was Johnson's relentless pressure against Dodson's power. And after five rounds, Johnson's pressure won out.
 
The judges scored the fight 48-47, 49-46 and 48-47 for Johnson in the main event of UFC on Fox 6. ESPN.com had Johnson winning 48-47.Super Bowl XLVII Odds

Ross Dettman for ESPNDemetrious Johnson overcame John Dodson's striking in the early rounds to defend his title.
 
Dodson got off to a fast start, landing several hard left hooks that hurt Johnson, dropping the champion three times in the second round. But despite the early setbacks, Johnson continued to pressure Dodson.2013 Stanley Cup Odds
 
"I got dazed a bit, but I'm in great shape," said Johnson, who was making the first defense of his title. "It's like swimming -- you're going to get wet a little bit."
 
Johnson's constant pressure eventually slowed Dodson's attack and in Rounds 4 and 5 -- the championship rounds -- Johnson began to take control of the fight.
 
He had found it easier to get Dodson against the cage, where he was able to land hard knees to the body and head. Johnson also took Dodson to the ground several times to impress the judges.
 
While Dodson was slowing down, Johnson showed no signs of wilting. As a result, Johnson improves to 17-2-1.
 
"It was a great fight. I'm very happy the fans liked it," Johnson said. "He hit me pretty good a couple of times. I was stunned, but I am in great shape and my head cleared very quick. He's very tough, very strong. I hit him with a lot of knees late, but he's very tough. That was a great fight and great first defense."
 
Dodson, who experienced five rounds of fighting for the first time as a flyweight, falls to 14-6.
 
"I don't think I won. Some people have said that, but I don't think so," Dodson said. "I think it was close. I will be back in the title picture soon. I got some things I need to go work on. I should have got out of that clinch better, but when I come back, I will be better."
