Demetrious Johnson Not Willing to Drop to 115

By Sherdog.com Staff Sep 18, 2012
Demetrious Johnson, on “Rewind,” discussing whether he’d drop to 115 pounds if the UFC added the division:

“No. I would never fight at 115 pounds; 125 is the lowest I go. If I do not become champion at 125, I will not go to 115. Not happening. ... I told myself that I’m not going to be that type of guy. When I fought at 135, when I lost the title against Dominick Cruz, I wasn’t distraught or whatever. Obviously I was sad, but I wasn’t like, ‘This is it for mixed martial arts.’ I went back to the gym and I started training again and I was about to make a run at the 135-pound belt just to keep on fighting ... . The same thing’s going to happen whether I win or lose [against Joseph Benavidez at UFC 152]. I’m going to go back to the gym, keep on getting better and keep on moving forward and take another fight.”
