Demetrious Johnson: ‘Cash Me Ousside’ girl would be the highest selling pay-per-view fighter in the world
Danielle Bregoli earned her 15-minutes of fame, and counting after appearing on the Dr Phil Show in September 2016.
The 13-year old is cashing in after coining a comical catch phrase that has appeared all over the internet and cable news networks.
Bregoli lashed out at the audience during the episode that dealt with the unruly teen taking issue with her parents’ demands.
Bregoli snapped to those in studio attendance: “Catch me outside, how about that?”
But, because of her accent, it sounded a lot more that: “Cash me ousside, how bow dah?”
The youngster is apparently making a boat load of money off the phrase, and her popularity continues to grow.
UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson appeared on the MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani this week where he said:
“I guarantee you if you get her (Bregoli) some gloves and put her in the Octagon, she would be the highest selling pay-per-view fighter in the world,” Johnson said. “She’d probably do way more numbers than Ronda. Just because she brings drama and negativity to wherever she goes.”
Johnson was speaking in relation to fellow UFC champion Tyron Woodley who has been extremely vocal of late about racism in mixed martial arts, his perceived lack of promotion from the UFC and the potential correlation between the two.
“Everybody just misunderstands Tyron when he talks about that,” Johnson said. “But I understand where he’s coming from.”
“As an athlete,” Johnson said, “you have to sit back and think like, ‘Why won’t they push my work? I’m an analyst, I’m a husband, I’m a father, I don’t do drugs. I never disrespected anybody on a big level. So why won’t they promote me, but they’ll promote this guy? … Do you think it’s because I’m black or is it because he’s white?’
“That’s where he’s coming from. I totally understand it, because as an athlete and as an African-American, you have to sit back and think about that.”
