Over the weekend, speaking on his Twitch stream, No.1 pound-for-pound star Demetrious Johnson announced that negotiations have officially begun.
“We’re in negotiations [to co-headline UFC 226],” Johnson said (via MMA Fighting). “Once my main man gets in here I’ll have him update all of the commands, that way when people come in here and ask about T.J. Dillashaw and Demetrious Johnson fighting each other, you guys know negotiations have begun. They have begun.”
Demetrious Johnson believes it’s the super fight that everyone wants.
If this fight goes down, there is no question the historic event will be exceeded off with four of the very best MMA fighters on the planet. Two gold belts will be on the line, with two men attempting to become simultaneous two-weight champions.
