UFC has parted ways with John ‘The Magician’ Dodson.
The 35-year-old’s sacking is a surprise, having in mind the fact that he was a major part of the flyweight and then the bantamweight division.
Unfortunatlly for him, his form was on the downside in the last few years, losing 6 of his last 10 bouts. In 2015 Dodson fought “DJ” for the flyweight belt, but Demetrious won via UD.
According to his manager, Dodson fully intends to continue competing after his UFC release and will likely not be short of offers as one of the most recognizable fighters in the lighter weight classes.
“We are excited to see what other offers are out there for John,” his manager Ricky Kottenstette said. “John is 100 percent committed to his fight career and he’s not diminished in his skill set whatsoever.
“John has fought the absolute best in the world in two weight classes and he’s still more than ready face elite competition. We look forward to talking to any and all promotions to find John the best home for his future.”
