UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw has been looking to lock down a super fight with pound-for-pound king Demetrious Johnson for some time now. Dillashaw and the UFC flyweight champion are currently in the early stages of negotiations, with both fighters now seemingly quite interested in throwing down.
Speaking on the latest edition of The MMA Hour, T.J. Dillashaw has come forward to offer his thoughts on what he wishes to do after a potential match against “Mighty Mouse.” For Dillashaw, winning the flyweight title would not be vacating his bantamweight belt. Rather, Dillashaw wishes to defend his potential championship in both divisions.
“If I can do it, absolutely. If they let me do it, I want to be active as long as I am healthy and ready to go. I want to fall back right away, as soon as I win this belt — the 125 belt —- and get back to work. I’ll come off and become the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, double champ, I got to a lot to pay off with, you know?”
