UFC President Dana white doesn’t predict a fight between UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor happening.
UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson recently came out and said that he would be interested in fighting UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. He told TMZ that it would be an easier fight to set up than McGregor’s fight against Floyd Mayweather and that it would be the fight that could guarantee himself a big pay day.
Johnson recently tied the record for the most title defenses in UFC history alongside Anderson Silva with ten. He beat Wilson Reis this past weekend at UFC On FOX 24, defeating the title challenger by arm bar submission in the third round.
UFC president Dana White gave his opinion on a potential super fight between Johnson and McGregor.
“Conor McGregor has a long line of people waiting on him,” he told TMZ. “Nah I don’t see that one. Listen, I didn’t think that Nate Diaz was going to fight him either, anything’s possible though so we’ll see.
“I never say never but no, thats not what we’re looking at. Im actually looking for him to go to Seattle to break the record if he can win that fight, and obviously not against McGregor.”
‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson has said that he will be interested in fighting again in the fall. If he can win his next fight then he will break the UFC record and take the lead in the most title defenses. Perhaps after that, a super fight becomes more likely though a bantamweight title fight might be more likely.
