    "John Dodson has a Lebron Jamesesque hairline, Joe"

    I do feel like he faded in that fight tho

    DJ vs JD, let's go.

    Although i'm sceptical of JD since his last fight,

    And since that encounter Mighty Mouse has fought about a hundred 5-round fights and Dodson has both fought less and they all were 3 rounders.
    His cardio will suck even more this time around.

    Saying it as Dodson's fan.

    i should go back and watch their 3rd round. dodson got the first 2 with knockdowns, then mighty mouse gets the last 2 via pressure and knees in the clinch. i dont remember the 3rd round that well tho

    I'm glad he acknowledged it.
    With 5 rounds stamina this gets interesting, although I think that DJ improved more.

    Cardio cannot sucks, it's literally impossible it's most likely because he took McGr- I mean Demetrious' body shots.

    he landed several knock downs so im sure he was putting some steam on his strikes.



    if you were just poking fun at mcgregor fans......then carry on

    Dodson is the better athlete. Demetrius held up better for the last round after getting knocked down a couple times and looked stronger at the end. So Dodson is probably right on that.

    I scored the first 3 rounds for him first time around and he faded.

    I thought with a lil better cardio and trying to grab a takedown at the end of rounds he would of secured the victory

    MM sets a pace that basically no one but him can keep up for 5 rounds. Thats what hes missing.

    He needs to bounce around less.

    Round 3 is pretty close. I think that round could have went either way.

    Dodson would have won the belt if it was a round 3 fight, unfournately for him it wasn't, and he spent the remaining 2 rounds getting his shit completely pushed in.

    I remember post fight tho baldfather saying he thought dodson won 3 to 2. It was a close fight.

    It was an impressive fight; MM showed heart and the willingness to push himself for championship rounds. Dodson looked good early, but his inconsistent volume and cardio cost him.

    I think DJ takes the rematch handily though. He's shown a lot more improvement since that fight, while Dodson can still be frustrating to watch at times. The talent is obviously there, but he doesn't put it all together as well.

    If you re-watch the fight Dodson was hanging right with him for the first 2 1/2 rounds. None of his camp was previously dedicated straight to cardio, which blows my mind when you are about to fight Mighty Mouse. I think the fight will be much different this time around. Dodson was landing HARD bombs in the first fight.

    I hope this fight is as good as the first one.

    Dodson needs to step it up just a bit and he could be champ.

    Hoping he pulls it off. I don't see the improvement in MM that many people are seeing, he fought fighters that weren't even close to deserving a ts.
