Demetrious Johnson, the reigning world champion of the ONE Flyweight division, has demonstrated time and time again that it does not matter how big the dog is in a battle.
As a result, “Mighty Mouse” appeared to laugh when questioned about who would be a more difficult opponent for him to battle between the newly minted UFC bantamweight champion Sean O’Malley and the bodybuilder/fitness influencer Bradley Martyn. “Mighty Mouse” is a nickname for Dana White.
Since he dethroned Aljamain Sterling during the past weekend, ‘Sugar’ has, of course, been rumored to face ‘DJ’ in a potential rematch between the two. The brawny Martyn, on the other hand, recently made a statement that caused some people in the MMA industry to raise their heads when he stated that he could defeat the much smaller Johnson in a street battle.
In the first episode of Johnson’s newly established podcast, MIGHTYcast, he was asked to choose between O’Malley and Martyn in terms of who would be more difficult to defeat. Here is the brutally honest reaction that the MMA great has to offer:
“Oh, for the love of god, Sean O’Malley. Bradley Martyn doesn’t even put in any effort to become in shape. Simply said, he is a large man. I mean, just take a look at the evidence! I’m merely pointing out the obvious here! Bradley Martyn is a kind guy who has excellent intentions and absolutely no bad blood toward anyone, but why can’t he even train properly?
In addition, Johnson continued to give Martyn credit for the many years he had spent working hard at his skill, but he also stated that Martyn had no business messing with a professional fighter of any size:
“Over the course of his life, he has probably spent the last 30 or 20 years doing weights as part of his training. It should come as no surprise that ‘Sugar’ Sean O’Malley would be a more formidable opponent.
Take a look at the video:
In the meanwhile, a fight between Johnson and O’Malley would undoubtedly be at the top of the wish list of any mixed martial arts fan, despite the fact that both fighters are now signed with separate companies.
Regarding Bradley’s challenge, Johnson has previously voiced his desire to wrestle the muscle-bound influencer and make him pay for his remarks. Bradley has also expressed his want to fight Johnson.
