Demetrious Johnson explains drop of “Mouse” from nickname

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson joined the Split Decision MMA Podcast earlier today ahead of Saturday’s UFC 215 pay-per-view where he will defend his title against Roy Borg.

Joey and Dodge talk to DJ about Reebok’s latest apparel, gaming consoles and how the UFC is marketing his fights.

“Mighty” as he wants to now be referred to, no longer “Mighty Mouse” answers questions about the lack of promotion for the UFC 215 fight card and more.

LISTEN BELOW:

“That’s what I wanted on my shirt.. I really don’t like to be referred to as a mouse.”

Johnson will be looking to break Anderson Silva’s title defense record. If he wins, it will be his 11th consecutive title defense, breaking a tie with former middleweight champion Silva for most in UFC history.

Tune in this Saturday night to possibly witness history.
