Demetrious Johnson says that negotiations for fight with T. J. Dillashaw at UFC 226

T. J. Dillashaw was not willing to give a rematch to Cody Garbrandt with a month of anticipation, an attempt to replace the lost star of UFC 222, but he said he wanted the super fight with Demetrious Johnson. And well, as the champion of fly-weight, the meeting is in the process: “We are currently negotiating co-starring UFC 226 the seven of July. I will update the channel to say automatically,” Johnson said to his audience during a broadcast on their channel for Twitch. “So when someone ask about the fight between T. J. Dillashaw and Demetrious Johnson, will know that they started the negotiations”.

The fight is one of the most remarkable that can put together the UFC: a cross between one of the competitors most prominent of the weights cock, and current champion of the division, facing the champion of the weights fly considered the number one pound-for-pound that has lost only competing in a division of greater size. Dillashaw believes that the number one spot in the rankings and pound for pound will be in play, but “Mighty Mouse” does not see it this way: “it Is different because it falls to my division, and the people I considered to be the best in the world because I beat everyone in my division, I overcame all styles and skills to those who faced it”.

T. J. has been fighting very couples in their division, lost against Raphael Assuncao and Dominick Cruz, Cody so flustered. I won two times to John Dodson and T. J. lost against him,” continued Mighty Mouse, which has not lost since he started competing as a fly-weight. Their last defeat was in October 2011 and in a division above theirs, but also in front of Cross. “My personal opinion is that it will not be the best in the world if I win. What gives me that post is my longevity, I have the title five years ago, and have dominated the competition”.
