In a very quiet fashion, Demetrious Johnson known as the Mighty Mouse has transformed into one of the very best pound-for-pound fighters ever seen in the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA).
The 30-year old has cleared out the entire Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight division as he moves on to nine-straight title defenses. He hopes he can push further, thus extending his winning streak to 10 and tying Anderson Silva’s UFC record this April on FOX
Speaking to MMA fighting earlier last week, the Mighty Mouse said:
“My next fight is set to tie Anderson Silva’s record for the most consecutive title fight defenses in UFC history.
“I put it out in the media and to UFC, immediately after my last fight that I wanted to do it in Las Vegas in March. Unfortunately, the next guy in line was fighting in February, so it had to be pushed back.” Read more »
Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping fought back in February, with the Briton winning a hard earned decision during their main event match in England.
Whether he’s eager for a rematch or not, the Spider decided to bring up the contest and make a mockery of Bisping on social media.
He took to Instagram about their bout and posted a picture with the following caption.
“Where did this punch come from? Kick in the mouth! Where did it come from? III. I will run from this guy! I hope they’ll help me in this fight! I think I am going to go to sleep and I will come back later since I’m at home! It is always nice to fight at home. God Save the Queen!”
“The day I knocked someone out and ended up losing by points. In the Queen’s land, it is no different from Brazil, it seems fighting at home has its advantages! God save the Queen!”
It wasn’t long before Bisping replied with a lengthy Instagram post of his own. Read more »
