The talk of a super fight between top pound-for-pound fighter Demetrious Johnson and bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw is still in the negotiation phase, as per Dillashaw.
Demetrious Johnson and TJ Dillashaw are ready to clash and are on the same page as where this fight will happen, which is at UFC 226, possibly to co-headline as this massive event that will be headlined by heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.
Dillashaw also reemphasized on previous statements that he would be more than happy to defend belts in two UFC divisions simultaneously if he defeats Demetrious Johnson and he continues to be confident about his potential cut down flyweight.
“What it comes down to is that I think I am the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world, and to do that I have to beat the best and I can make his weight class which will prove that I am the best fighter in the world,” said Dillashaw on The MMA Hour.
“If I can do it, absolutely. If they let me do it, I want to be active as long as I am healthy and ready to go. I want to fall back right away, as soon as I win this belt — the 125 belt —- and get back to work. I’ll come off and become the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, double champ, I got to a lot to pay off with, you know?”
Obviously, Conor McGregor is the first and only fighter who holds titles in two different divisions, but unfortunately, he’s never defended a belt ever.
At the moment, TJ Dillashaw taking care of nagging injuries and having a good time with his newborn. But he is eagerly waiting for final details of this super fight to unfold so he can sign the contract.
