Since 2019, Demetrious Johnson (30-3-1) is struggling in ONE Championship, but he never gives up on his dreams in UFC. Right now he is waiting for a date to be confirmed for him to compete for this company’s Flyweight Championship, after winning a tournament for a starting opportunity. He was scheduled to face the monarch, Adriano Moraes (18–3), in April, but had to be canceled by COVID-19, which has already affected many fighters.
But, anyway, he himself has been receiving challenges from fighters from his same division of the UFC, like the current World Champion, Deiveson Figueiredo (19-1). Because everyone knows how important “Mighty Mouse” is. In fact, it is the best that has ever gone through the 125 pound category for that company. And now, Johnson has an answer for them. Steadfastly and keeping nothing to himself, he pulled everything out of himself and exposed his thoughts about it.
Thus, without neglecting to be within the octagon of UFCThis is what he said to SCMP MMA: “I think that by mentioning my name they are building my brand. I’m not even in the company but they keep talking about me all the time, it’s amazing. That just speaks to everything I’ve done in my career as a mixed martial arts fighter. ” He clearly does not want to pass over anyone, but he is not afraid of those who want to have him in front of the cage.
Johnson He also discussed whether Henry Cejudo (16-2), his last opponent in the Octagon, could fit into his current company. “I don’t know how the King of the Cringe could do it in ONE. It says many things to build your brand. I guess it would fit well, he’s an Olympic gold medalist. Other than that, there is not much to say. I don’t know what they think of ONE. At the end of the day, it is up to them if they want me to come, “he said. The expeleador is no longer among the possible candidates, considering that he confirmed his retirement months ago.
“Cejudo is retired. I just did another interview where I was asked about other retired fighters. They are retired, I’m not even thinking about them. We have many other boys here who want to fight. It is in them that I focus, “said Dana White, President of UFC. It seems that the president has no interest in talking about Henry competing in the featherweight. Nor is it a surprise. Both because of his retirement and because in this division there are already interesting names to fight for the championship in 2020 and 2021.
