    He used to be so dynamic he hurt/ko'd Mighty and TJ and now he just spends time darting in and out and running away. His fights are terrible now

    Ever since the Lineker fight he's been boring. I blame Greg Jackson

    He has more stinkers than good fights. Hell even some of the ones he won by finish or whatever still sucked ass like his fight with Moraga and I think Jussier too.

    He's been with Jackson since day one.

    Honestly, I think it's his size. He should drop back to 125, where his power translates better. Other than that, Mighty Mouse happened. He beat Dodson at his game and made him look silly.

    He lost a step when he tore his ACL.

    Yes, but that shitty gameplan against Lineker ruined him.

    Like Cerrone said, the camp went to shit and only taught cookie cutting stuff. So does Dodson look very basic now and never tries to create opportunities on his own.

    Better question what happened to his hairline? The magician is making it disappear.

    It reminds me of when Hacran Dias moved to 155 but didn't improve his cardio

    He got old. Happens to everyone, happens faster at the smaller weight classes

    He’s honestly looked like garbage since the second DJ fight. Probably a USADA victim.


    Also his hairline is bad and he should feel bad.

    He got old. He’s been in the game a long time.

    So, I have known John Dodson since 2008. He cornered me in amateur fights and was my wrestling coach for a while. He is a great guy. I think what has happened over the last few years is he now has a family. A wife and 2 kids and he really spends a lot of time and effort with his family. It's awesome he is being a great dad, but since his daughter was born around the 2nd Mighty Mouse fight I think his family has become more of a priority and his desire/warrior mentality has diminished.

    I don't know but that half-fro isn't helping his aerodynamics.
