Dodson wins by KO again

Following a tough loss in his last fight for the UFC flyweight

title, John Dodson bounced back in perfect form

prospect Darrell Montague to kick off the UFC 166 pay-per-view.

Quite possibly the fastest fighter in the UFC, Dodson was once

again quick on his feet beating Montague to the punch each and

every time the two fighters decided to exchange strikes.

Dodson launched a huge hook at Montague’s head early in the

round, sending his opponent reeling back towards the cage. Dodson

swarmed with punches but Montague was able to grab a leg and find

enough time to recover.

It was short lived new life, however, as Dodson wasn’t done with

his attack just yet. A counter left hand landed flush on Montague’s

jaw just a few moments later, and as his legs fell out from him the

UFC newcomer literally face planted on the canvas.

The end came at 4:13 of the first round as Montague was so

disoriented he actually attempted to take down the referee while

trying to get his bearings back.

Dodson (15-6) gets back in the winner’s circle while handing

Montague (13-3) a defeat in his first UFC fight. With another

knockout to his credit, Dodson will also inject himself back into

title contender territory while possibly targeting the winner of

the upcoming flyweight title fight between Demetrious Johnson and

Joseph Benavidez.
