    I'm actually pretty sick of rematches (Jones vs Gus II being the exception) Barao hasn't earned a rematch and neither has Dodson. If Makovsky wins his next one impressively he should get the next shot.

    A-fucking-men to this. But they keep on asking it, probably because it's so easy to get a soubdbyte out of it. But it's low hanging fruit to be sure, and it makes me wish we were better served as fans by those who would call themselves "MMA Journalists."

    I think he loses all of those fights in all honesty. And that isnt meant as a knock on him either.

He also calls out a former champ from another Org. Sounds to me like Johnson wants to face them all.

    It sounded, to me, like he was just stating a preference for new fights instead of rematches. No problem with that there. He also acknowledged it was the UFC's call and that he wasn't going to duck anyone. It's not like Johnson said Dodson is undeserving of anything.

    The flyweight division is deeper than three guys. I don't think Dodson is clearly #1 contender, as his win over Moraga comes right after Johnson already beat him.

    But I'm not a fan of champs picking their opponents, although it's not as pathetic as champs talking smack about their opponent after their opponent has already been picked. I'm not a fan of hack reporters asking fans who they should fight.

    Nah, he'll sign on the dotted line to fight whomever the UFC tells him to; and he'll do it without the public drama.
