Demetrious Johnson Challenges Floyd Mayweather To A No Grappling UFC Debut Fight

Demetrious Johnson Challenges Floyd Mayweather To A No Grappling UFC Debut Fight
23/12/2017


Money had recently been rumored to be on his heading for a fight under the UFC banner but this was called off by the American hours after the UFC president Dana White admitted he was in talks with him for a potential Fight in the UFC.

This sparked some heat on him as every male fighter on the UFC umbrella wanted to give Floyd a proper debut, one of which include Demetrious Johnson. He claimed he could go up 20lbs to make the fight happen.

Floyd Mayweather is a good striker as all Boxers are but when it comes to grappling and take downs Floyd has no experience and would probably hinder his interest in the UFC from growing. Hence, Johnson's idea of inviting Money to a No grappling UFC Fight.

“I think it would go very well for me, obviously,” Johnson told TMZ Sports . “I’m very well-rounded. It’s mixed martial arts. I would even do a handicap. I won’t even grapple with him. I won’t even go to the ground at all. I’ll get him in the clinch, bang up, hit him in the liver, kick him in the liver, take out his legs and work him.”

The flyweight champion looks more athletic than Floyd Mayweather and will most likely get the best of Money, if both were to face off in the Octagon, at least he believes so.

“100 percent [I would win],” said Johnson. “Yeah, of course. You have the clinch, there’s kicks, there’s elbows, it’s mixed martial arts. I come from one of the great coaches - Matt Hume, Brad Kertson - and my skill set is well-rounded.

“I’d probably get after that liver. Have to get after that liver. Beat him up in the Muay Thai clinch because he likes to clinch a lot. You see it in his boxing, when he clinches, once we initiate that clinch, I’m gonna throw a knee right to his liver.”

“Floyd, come over here and beat up the smallest guy in the UFC,” said Johnson. “Come try your hand, try to beat up the smallest guy.”

What is your take on the offer, will Money be able to make it out of the Octagon after a no grappling contest with the Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson or will he simply get knocked out in the first round.
