UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson called out Floyd Mayweather yesterday, after UFC president Dana White confirmed he was negotiating with the retired boxing star.
In a new interview with TMZ, the UFC’s P4P king is speaking out, saying he would destroy Floyd should the two meet inside the cage.
Demetrious Johnson is the most successful champion in UFC history, and his dominance seems to be in no jeopardy. Johnson has already broken Anderson Silva’s title defense record, and is primed and ready for a mega fight of his own.
Demetrious Johnson vs Floyd Mayweather?
Taking to TMZ, Johnson stated, “I think it would go very well for me. It’s mixed martial arts, but I’d even do a handy cap, I don’t even need to grapple with him,” as transcribed by MMAImports.com. “I don’t need to go to the ground at all. I’d get him n the clinch, kick him in the liver, hit him in the liver, kick out his legs, and work him.”
“Floyd, come beat up the smallest guy in the UFC. Come try your hand and come beat up the smallest guy!”
