Dodson vs. Formiga to Decide Next Flyweight Title Contender
It looks like we called it! On this Monday’s MMA Roundtable show, we forecasted that John Dodson and Jussier “Formiga” da Silva would decide the first title contender for Demetrious Johnson’s 125-lb. strap. It was confirmed just recently as Dana White confirmed to MMA Junkie that the winner would move onto fight for the title.
Dodson, The Ultimate Fighter 14 champion is 2-0 in the UFC with a 13-5 overall MMA slate while da Silva is making his debut in the promotion but is 14-1 in his career, his only loss to Ian McCall. The two will fight this Friday at UFC on FX 5 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN.
