She's here! At 245 am Delilah sees me— John Dodson III (@JohnDodsonMMA) September 1, 2015
Whether he captures the Ultimate Fighting Championship 125-pound title or not, John Dodson has plenty of reasons to celebrate.
The UFC 191 headliner revealed on his Instagram account Monday night that he was flying from Las Vegas to his hometown of Albuquerque, N.M., to take part in the birth of his daughter. Tuesday morning, the flyweight No. 1 contender announced that his girlfriend delivered a baby girl at 2:45 a.m. local time. The couple named her Delilah Sky.
Dodson, 17-6, will challenge flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson Saturday at UFC 191 in Las Vegas.
