Demetrious Johnson’s Not Interested in Defending 125 Title Against TJ Dillashaw…Yet

The UFC is hoping to book a fight between TJ Dillashaw and Demetrious Johnson in August, but if the promotion wants the latter to defend the 125 title, “Mighty Mouse” isn’t interested.

Following comments from Dana White, where he confirmed that Cody Garbrandt will no longer fight TJ Dillashaw at UFC 213, and that they want the latter to fight Johnson in August, the flyweight champ tweeted out this:

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as after Dillashaw proposed a bout with Johnson a little while back, the renowned fighter said the former 135 champ doesn’t deserve a title shot.

Garbrandt continues to rehab a back injury, which is why he cannot fight on July 8th.
