Some people call John Dodson’s strategy inside the Octagon as good defense, while others simply call it running.

Whatever the case may be, Jimmie Rivera isn’t all that interested in a showdown against the speedy combatant, as it has all the makings of a boring fight that will eventually get both of them booed out of the arena,

“I just think at the end of the day it would be a boring fight, because he’s just gonna run, people are gonna boo and that’s just the way it is,” Rivera told MMA Fighting.

I don't really agree that Dodson is "scared" but I understand Rivera trying to posture. I do however think it would make for a terrible fight to watch. Jimmie would prob revert back to his old ways pre-UFC and grapple Dodson up against the cage for 3 rounds.
