John Dodson won a unanimous decision over a tough and game Timothy Elliott on Saturday night, and he fought much of it one handed.

It was noted during the fight that Dodson was favoring his left hand, and by the third round he wasn’t throwing it much at all.

Following the fights in New Jersey, Dodson’s manager Jahani Curl of Machi Sports and Entertainment confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that his fighter’s hand was broken during the first round of the fight.

Dodson managed to outwork and still score the win over Elliott despite losing one of his primary weapons in the first five minutes of the fight.

The Team Jackson fighter will visit with a doctor later tonight to have his hand checked out for a final diagnosis.

Dodson won the fight against Elliott 29-28 on all of the judges’ scorecards.

    I had Elliot winning that fight. Some people might disagree, but he controlled the octagon the entire fight and had Dodson backing up the entire time. The Punchstat was close too, but Dodson looked like he had no answer for Elliot.

      I don’t disagree with you at all. In fact, I’m surprised people aren’t really upset about this. I have no idea how Dodson got the victory, and a unanimous one at that. I honestly didn’t have him winning one round. Elliot didn’t completely dominate, but he was way more aggressive, and in a fight where neither fighter does much damage, that should carry the day.

      Too bad, too. Would have been a huge victory for Elliot. Dodson did not deserve that at all.
