"I'm taking this motherf-ker home!"
Many fans are hoping to see a superfight between UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt for Johnson's chance to make history by beating Anderson Silva's title defense record.
Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson tied the record for most consecutive UFC title defenses when he submitted Wilson Reis in the UFC on FOX 24 main event on Saturday in Kansas City, Mo.
"The first time I saw a commercial for my fight was UFC 210", Johnson said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour (via MMA Fighting).
"I want to recapture that photo that Floyd Mayweather has done, Andre Ward just did it".

"I went on Twitch and said, 'I want to ask anyone in the world, have any of you guys seen a commercial for my fight?'" Johnson said.
At the end of the day, Johnson says despite the low numbers, he is very proud of what he accomplished Saturday night in the "Show Me State", tying Silva's record while submitting a jiu-jitsu black belt.
Like just about everybody else, Cruz believes that Johnson is by far the most dominant flyweight fighter in the world, but he remembers how the current 125-pound champion matched up against him seven six years ago and those same issues would still plague him today. "All I do is go home, drink beer, play video games, and change diapers". "I'm going to be laughing all the way to the bank". Michael Bisping has two belts and I'm just a nice guy, just a company man, I come here, fight and then they take the belt away from me and I'm like, 'alright, peace. I knew Wilson was fighting, I didn't know if we was going to win or not, I didn't care if he was going to win or not, I had my training camp and I was ready to fight on April 15. But if ever they can face each other, it will surely sell and Johnson gets the payday he wants.
"I'm going to get him his belts", White said to Megan Olivi during the UFC.com event recap."He's definitely keeping the belt from tonight, and I guess I've got some catching up to do". That's not the way it works. You defend your title, and you keep your belt. If we were handing out belts with every single defense, that would be a lot of money. They bring 'em, we order them as we do events.
