Demetrious Johnson Has Never Liked The Way UFC Promotes Fights The legendary trade between Demetrious Johnson and Ben Askren was finalized this weekend. "Mighty Mouse" has shown ONE FC contract on his Twitter account. The Asian promotion officially got a new superstar! https:\/\/twitter.com\/MightyMouse\/status\/1056733861965484033 The best UFC Flyweight fighter of all time was never thrilled with the way UFC was promoting the fights. He confessed that he has never been a fan of bullying. "Mighty Mouse" also stated that he didn't like the fact attacking the potential opponent on social media brings more popularity. According to the former UFC Flyweight superstar, true martial artists should clear the things up inside the ring. In North America, there is no respect, trash-talking sells fights! In ONE FC, the situation is completely different. (via BJPenn.com) \u201cI was always never the biggest fan of the way people went about promoting their fights over in North America,\u201d Johnson told reporters (via MMAJunkie). \u201cI saw it as a way some athletes used it as a way of bullying, as a way of trying to gain followers. When an athlete says on Twitter \u2018why haven\u2019t you signed the contract yet\u2019 to another athlete, for me I see that as a form of bullying. All that\u2019s going to do is stir people to go to that person\u2019s Twitter or social media and say, \u2018You\u2019re scared, you don\u2019t want this, you\u2019re chicken.\u2019 When I see professional athletes doing that, that are trying to embody the spirit of a martial artist, it just puts a bad taste in my mouth.\u201d \u201cI\u2019m very, and I say with high praise, I\u2019m very excited that I don\u2019t have to go through that whole thing and (I can) be OK with myself as a true martial artist. And I felt I\u2019ve always done that in my time here in North America,\u201d Demetrious Johnson said. \u201cAnd now that everybody does that, it\u2019s in everybody\u2019s DNA in Asia. It\u2019s always about respect and promoting the fight the correct way as a true martial artist: We\u2019re going to go in there and test our skills against each other. I\u2019m very much looking forward to that way of promoting fights than it is in North America. That was something that I just didn\u2019t fit in." Demetrious Johnson is not a guy who prefers insulting people. He trains MMA because he sees it as the way to express his emotions. According to "Mighty Mouse", a true master of martial arts should never insult or troll anybody. \u201cPeople told me \u2026 there\u2019s nothing worse than when I\u2019m at the gym working out and somebody says, \u2018Dude, if you want to sell more tickets and get your name on the (next box of) Frosted Flakes, you\u2019ve got to talk more trash.\u2019 That\u2019s not who I am. I\u2019m not a confrontational person. I do mixed martial arts because it\u2019s something I love, and it helps me express my feelings. I\u2019m an artist when I get to compete. Artists don\u2019t run their mouth and attack people or cause a big scene. They focus and put their energy on what they love to do, which is being a martial artist. What I love to do, which is being a martial artist. So I\u2019m very much looking forward to it.\u201d But it looks like the future of UFC Flyweight division is seriously endangered by Johnson's trade. Henry Cejudo is interested in\u00a0UFC title fight against Bantamweight king TJ Dillashaw. So there is a big chance the division will lack in superstars. Johnson\u00a0encourages fighters to follow his steps and test their luck in ONE FC. "Mighty Mouse" also stated it is "unfortunate" since there is a chance UFC is going to close Flyweight division. https:\/\/twitter.com\/DamonMartin\/status\/1056728077697466369 \u00a0\u201cDemetrious Johnson says it\u2019s \u2018unfortunate\u2019 that the UFC might close the flyweight division. He believes the UFC should keep the division. But if the athletes from there want to join him in ONE Championship, he believes that will be the best place in the world to fight.\u201d Do you agree with Demetrious Johnson? After all, Conor McGregor is the most popular martial artist in the world. Despite his behavior,\u00a0Dana White loves him as if he is his own son! Also, do you believe UFC Flyweight division is on a thin ice at the moment?
