Demetrious Johnson Says Larger Paychecks Will Motivate Him to Move up

The showdown takes place at the T-Mobile Arena, just metres away from where Stephen Paddock slaughtered more than 50 people and injured over 500. "Maybe he should fight Nate again and prove that he can fight me". If I can give you 25 minutes of not thinking about something else, then it's worth it to me - to fight and take the biggest risk I can take.

With the drama that was the action and fallout of UFC 214, Mayweather-McGregor and the impending wave of excitement that UFC 217 will bring, it is easy to see why this weekend's card has flown under the radar, although it deserves far more attention than it is getting.

If he wins, Johnson will break the all-time record for consecutive title defenses at 11, overtaking ex-champ Anderson Silva as the winningest champion in the promotion's history.

A 30,000 square foot mega-structure, the Performance Institute is home to not only the most cutting edge training facilities and coaching, but is crafted for the precise needs of MMA fighters, from nutrition and sports science, to weight-cutting and hydration.

"It was a bump in the road and these things happen; everyone has had to call in sick and miss work a time or two", said Brandon Gibson, the highly respected striking coach who has forged a strong bond with Borg since he arrived at the Jackson-Wink MMA Academy a little over a year ago.

"They were going to go to the festival".

Ray Borg is a huge underdog heading into his bout with Demetrious Johnson, but the rising flyweight recently offered a very specific prediction, on how he'll defeat the storied fighter. We come from the same background, but unfortunately to make it in this world and make a name for yourself, you have to be more vocal. Therefore, I feel it is important to unveil to you what this Saturday's fighters are all about, and what better way to do that than to discuss some of their past fights?

"Ray is the most well-rounded, complete fighter that DJ has ever faced", added Gibson.

"I don't even think he beat Nate Diaz the second time". I'm fighting Tony. Nobody wanted to fight Tony. Opponent Kevin Lee keeps his mind sharp with a fight night simulation with his coach.

Dunham isn't the only one spending fight week thinking about the tragedy. But there have been four different champions in each of those divisions during that time, while Johnson has remained the lone man at the helm of the 125-pound ranks. They had country music and my wife knows I like country music.
