With the neverending rumors circulating about the potential boxing match-up between UFC champ Conor McGregor and retired boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, another UFC fighter has chimed in with his input.
Demetrious Johnson (a.k.a. Mighty Mouse) thinks Conor’s next fight should be in the Octagon, defending his belt. In an interview with The Buzzer, Johnson shared some of his thoughts.
“I’d like to see Conor defend his belt,” Johnson said. “I’d rather see Conor fight the winner of Tony (Ferguson) and Khabib (Nurmagomedov).”
However, if the fight of the century does ever come to fruition, Johnson feels that McGregor has a good shot at winning.
“I think Conor has a good chance to beat him,” said Johnson. “Floyd is a master of not getting hit. I think Conor has a fight because it’s boxing and you score points for defending.”
The more we hear about this fight, the more we wish it would just happen already.
