John Dodson from "The Ultimate Fighter" is one of the mixed martial artists featured in Season 14 of the Spike TV reality competition series. Going into the season, his record is 11-5-0.

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, John Dodson ("Ultimate Fighter") took to athletics at a young age. While attending Moriarty High School, Dodson earned varsity letters in track and field, football and wrestling before graduating in 2003. He excelled on the wrestling mat, amassing four district championships and two state titles in his four year career.

Despite these accolades, Dodson wanted to focus on academics and a career in information technology, and enrolled at the University of New Mexico, majoring in computer science. To help pay for college, Dodson took a job at Chuck E. Cheese, and, as fate would have it, he found himself waiting on members of Greg Jackson's camp one evening. Familiar with Dodson's high school accomplishments, they were shocked that he had not pursued athletics any further, and convinced him to try his hand at mixed martial arts, and, before long, an MMA career was born and Dodson was training full time.

Standing 5 foot 3 inches tall, John Dodson's diminutive stature may lead some to underestimate him, but the 11 wins he has amassed, often in spectacular fashion, suggests that his opponents do so at their own peril.
