Demetrious Johnson Willing To Fight Conor McGregor


UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson is coming off of a successful title defense over Wilson Reis at UFC On Fox 24.

With that title defense behind him, the champion is willing to take a super fight against UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.

“He would have to make 145, I would not be able to make 155 pounds,” Johnson told TMZ. “I would say that fight is absolutely easier to get done than the Floyd Mayweather fight.”

McGregor is currently busy trying to get a deal done to box the legendary Floyd Mayweather Jr. later this year.

Johnson is also on the verge of making UFC history, because if he can successfully defend his flyweight title just one more time, then he would break the record for most consecutive title defenses in UFC history.

Super fights seem to be an interesting topic for Johnson, because he was also challenged to a champion versus champion fight by UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt. However, the flyweight kingpin recently stated in an interview that after meeting with Garbrandt, the fight won’t be happening anytime soon.

Whether it is Mayweather Jr. or Johnson, the lightweight title holder will not be fighting until the birth of his first child is complete.
