The pound-for-pound number one feels he is being mistreated by the UFC and Dana White.
Not many will have saw this coming.
UFC flyweight champion and pound-for-pound great Demetrious Johnson, who has quietly ruled the flyweight division for the last five years, has spoke out about what he feels is mistreatment and bullying from the UFC.
UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson is picking Conor McGregor against Floyd Mayweather, and wants to see “The Notorious” fight the Gennady Golovkin vs. Saul Alvarez winner afterwards.
The UFC’s pound-for-pound king is siding with Conor McGregor to top Floyd Mayweather, and he would like to see the UFC lightweight champion stay in boxing after he pulls off the huge upset.
Demetrious Johnson is staying put at flyweight, but is open to moving up in weight if it comes with better compensation.
After his 11th consecutive title defense last Saturday at UFC 216, one of the questions that were thrown at Demetrious Johnson was “what’s next?” One of the options that have been on the table for a while now is to move up in weight for a possible super-fight at 135-pounds.
Demetrious Johnson ripped on Ronda Rousey about how she handles losses.
Ronda Rousey has not won a fight since 2015. Since her second consecutive loss to Amanda Nunes last December, she has once again chosen to remain outside of the limelight, with her fighting career uncertain.
Despite a bad loss to Colby Covington, Demian Maia pledges to carry on fighting.
Demian Maia has been near the top of whatever division he has competed in for almost a decade now. The former BJJ superstar has had a long and winding road in his MMA career, and just short of his 40th birthday, has now lost two bouts in a row and fallen down the welterweight ladder.
B.J. Penn was looking to get back on track at UFC Oklahoma City, but Dennis Siver had other plans, as he overcame some mid-match adversity, to pour it on strong down the stretch and earn the majority decision.
Middleweight contender Derek Brunson believes UFC 208 opponent Anderson Silva used a substance to make his body slippery when they met in February.

Derek Brunson believes he was robbed at UFC 208, and he’s going to appeal the decision with the New York commission.
Derek Brunson has become the second fighter today to appeal a UFC 208 loss. After Holly Holm’s camp announced that they will be looking for the New York State Athletic Commission to review her loss to Germaine de Randamie, Derek Brunson will do the same in regards to his decision loss to Anderson Silva.
Fox Sports confirmed the news with Brunson’s manager, Ali Abdel-Aziz.
The co-main event for UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt witnessed the #8 middleweight Derek Brunson run through the #15 ranked middleweight Daniel Kelly in front of the Auckland crowd. Brunson started with a patient approach, opposed to his usual berzerker style, and when he saw his opening, Brunson uncorked a thumping left cross that sent Kelly crashing to the canvas.
Derrick Lewis says his sudden retirement was a bit premature, but if his back injury heals up he’d like to settle his beef with Francis Ngannou.
UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis surprised nearly everyone when he suddenly retired after a TKO loss to Mark Hunt earlier month in New Zealand. After all, he had been on a six-fight winning streak before the Hunt bout and is only 32 years old. Why would he want to bow out of the sport when he had just signed a lucrative contract extension?
After CM Punk was dominated and submitted rather easily in his mixed martial arts (MMA) debut at last night's (Sat., Sept. 10, 2016) UFC 203 event in Cleveland, Ohio by Mickey Gall (see it), the fight world took to Twitter to offer up their mixed reactions.
Nate Diaz believes he's every bit as business savvy as Conor McGregor. Diaz, like his older brother Nick, always seems to get what he wants, even when he's being a menace to the UFC heads.
Current estimates indicate that UFC 202, the Aug. 20 show headlined by Conor McGregor's decision win over Nate Diaz, will be the most successful non-boxing pay-per-view event in the history of the genre.
Diego Brandao talks about the bizarre incidents during his last fight in Russia that led to him walking out of the cage, mid-fight.
Diego Brandao’s most recent professional fight in Dagestan, Russia, was a strange one, to say the least.

Diego Sanchez will head back up to 170 and face a tough opponent in November.
Diego Sanchez just can’t seem to stay at one weight class. After dropping down and down further and then back up a bit, he’s decided to come back to where he’s had the most UFC fights and arguably the most success - at 170 pounds. The UFC announced late yesterday that the middleweight winner of the very first TUF season will meet Matt Brown at UFC Fight Night 120 in Norfolk, VA, on November 11th.
Get the inside scoop on the opening contests of UFC 216’s main card, including a pivotal heavyweight clash between former champion Fabricio Werdum and Derrick Lewis.
The first three fights of UFC 216’s main card feature two outstanding contests and another that no one can figure out why the UFC stuck it on the main card. The heavyweight bout features a former champion clashing with one of the newest contenders in the division and the opener is a favorite to win the FOTN. The other contest?

Discover the inner workings of the main card of UFC Glasgow, including a highly anticipated battle between strikers Paul Felder and Scotland’s own Stevie Ray.
The first half of UFC Glasgow highlights prospects looking to make a name for themselves. Jack Marshman, Khalil Rountree, and Justin Willis have yet to establish themselves as proven UFC talents, but are also early enough in their careers that we don’t know just how far they can go. Though the narratives of their careers will be far from written after the event, we’ll have a much better idea of where they’ll be going.
Get the inside scoop on the opening portion of the main card of UFC Sao Paulo, featuring an exciting contest between rising bantamweights Rob Font and Pedro Munhoz.
I’ll admit, I’m not the best person to recommend whether a card is worth watching. I tend to recommend almost every fight. I usually do a good job of deciphering which contest would be better/best when given a choice of fights to choose from, but generally can find a reason to watch any of them. In the case of UFC Sao Paulo’s main card, I think I can unabashedly state every contest is worthwhile.
