The dominant flyweight champion made it look much easier the second time around against John Dodson, stifling ‘The Magician’ at every turn and dominating him with an uncanny set of all-around skills.
You may find it tough to predict what’s next for ‘Mighty Mouse’ after he’s beaten the top two contenders in his division twice each, but in reality, there’s really one fight to book him in next, and that’s against the winner of UFC Fight Night Monterrey’s Jussier Formiga vs. Henry Cejudo bout.
If he gets past that contender as the odds will certainly overwhelmingly predict he would, then it will get very barren for ‘Mighty Mouse’ at 125 pounds. That could mean he has to move back up to bantamweight for a potentially amazing superfight with 135-pound champ TJ Dillashaw. However, ‘Mighty Mouse’ has stated that he wants around two million dollars for that fight, and that’s simply not going to happen because unfortunately it just wouldn’t be all that big of a draw.
While ‘Mighty Mouse’s’ fighting future may be very uncertain relatively soon, one thing is not: he is seriously threatening Anderson Silva’s UFC record of 10 consecutive title defenses, so expect him to stay put in the meantime and eventually reach that lofty peak.If you enjoyed this story, please share it on social media!
