One would think Dodson should move up; more respectability at higher weight class and perhaps more $(?) also. But by the time he gets his chance at TJ, TJ may not even be champ anymore.
Well, they're probably not going to do that. As a matter of fact, they will probably add another light weight class (115).

Come on... there is no set way to a title shot in the UFC. I agree that he SHOULD need at least 2 legit wins at 135... but the UFC marches to their own drum.

I'd like the idea of it. I think it would make for an awesome fight. But in reality, I think that they would both need to win 2 or 3 fights in a row before it could happen. Considering the competition that they are set to face over the next year or two, I don't think it's that safe of a bet.....





.....unless they face each other after coming off of a loss. Which may be even more unlikely. I'd love to see it though.
