Avoid Hecarim dash?

Hello :) This might sound stupid, but... is there a way to avoid Hecarim's dash other than Zhonyas? Quite often in Midlane, I see him coming. I know he's there. Then he dashes. I flash or ult as Ahri and I STILL get pushed around. Is my timing just shit, or is there no way to avoid It? Thanks for the help already :) Edit: I don't wanna necessarily avoid the damage. I just don't wanna be pushed. And I am talking early game where no one has a full item yet, so I don't have Zhonyas or Banshees.
