Come on, this is just getting silly now…

The current standoff between UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and Dana White is truly puzzling. Standing on the brink of breaking Anderson Silva’s title defense record, ‘Mighty Mouse’ recently revealed a tale of alleged bullying by the UFC.

During an unexpected rant, ‘Mighty Mouse’ claimed the UFC was trying to force him in to fighting TJ Dillashaw. The former bantamweight champion had challenged Johnson, but the 125-pound champ said there was more to the story.

Taking a stance against the UFC, ‘Mighty Mouse’ said he was threatened with having the division shut down.

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson is no longer a company man…

Johnson vs. Borg is Happening, Bu Dana is Still Mad

Speaking with today, UFC president Dana White again shredded the flyweight champ:

“You want Ray Borg, we’ll give you Ray Borg,” White told MMAjunkie. “I’m sure the fans will be clamoring, and ticket sales will be through the roof and pay-per-views will be off the charts.”

“I’m not thrilled with Demetrious Johnson,” White said. “You’re the pound-for-pound best in the world, T.J. Dillashaw challenges you – one of the best in the world, former world champion – and you flat out deny the fight, flat out say, ‘I won’t do it. I want Ray Borg.’

“When I talk about the Conor McGregor thing, there’s the complete (expletive) opposite of Conor McGregor,” White said. “‘I want to roll into Russia and fight Khabib – the guy that if you ask most fans and media, they say, ‘Keep him away from (expletive) Khabib.’ You know what I mean? No, I want Khabib, and I want him in Russia in his home country. The complete opposite.”

“Who wouldn’t want to see Demetrious Johnson vs. T.J. Dillashaw? Dillashaw calling me every day: ‘I’m cutting weight. I’m cutting weight. I’m dieting. I’m training. I’m cutting weight. Do I got the fight? Do I got the fight?’ Ask T.J. Dillashaw next time you see him or you interview him. Calling me every day, chomping at the bit for the fight. You expect the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world to go, ‘Let’s do it.’”

“What I said to him was, ‘A couple of years ago, we were actually talking about getting rid of the division,’” White said, pointing to a conversation he had with Johnson during a Snoop Dogg concert at the UFC Athlete Retreat 2017. “There was never a threat to him, ‘Oh, we’re going to get rid of the division. That was complete bull(expletive), and 90 percent of what he came out and said was complete bull(expletive). Never did I say to him, ‘Hey, if you don’t do this, we’re going to get rid of your division.’ What I said to him was, ‘A couple of years ago, we were talking.’

“I built an ‘Ultimate Fighter’ around you to try and build you. He said he hasn’t been promoted. Who has defended that weight division more than me? I mean, I used to stand up in front of (the media) at the press conference going, ‘This kid is amazing. He’s unbelievable. He’s this. He’s that,’ which he is. I’m not saying he’s not. But we’re in a spot now where you had the opportunity to really get out there. T.J. Dillashaw called you out. He’s one of the best in the world, and he’s a former world champion. Many people thought he won the fight against (Dominick) Cruz. And you flat out say, ‘I don’t want to fight this guy. I want this guy, I want to fight the No. 5 or No. 6 guy instead.”

  1. McGregor only wants Khabib because he know the fight won’t happen. Khabib can’t cut the weight. By calling Khabib out it just makes him look tough.
