UWC announces landmark 125-pound title fight

The Ultimate Warrior Challenge recently announced that John Dodson and Pat Runez would fight for the promotion’s inaugural flyweight title.

The Washington, DC based organization has been one of the most progressive companies when it comes to promoting the flyweight division. The UWC first featured the weight class in Feb. 2009, and on all their shows since.

John Dodson is a veteran of the Tapout reality show, and holds a 8-4 record in MMA. Due to his slight size the Greg Jackson product has often been forced to fight up in weight. This was the case in his UWC as he fought to a decision with current bantamweight champion Mike Easton. Despite controlling the fight with strikes the judges awarded the fight to Easton. Since then Dodson has gone 2-0 with impressive victories over flyweights Jose Villirisco and Jose Lujan.
