UFC 191: Dana White Says Demetrious Johnson is “Probably The Best Pound-For-Pound Fighter”
By FCF Staff
While Demetrious Johnson might still have some critics following UFC 191, since he didn’t stop John Dodson, Dana White was clearly and understandably very impressed with the flyweight champ’s performance.
Johnson consistently beat Dodson to the punch throughout the high pace fight, and as the bout wore on, he started to land some takedowns as well. After the fight, which saw Johnson win by unanimous decision, it was hard to tell the champ had even been in a scrap.
In the post-fight show for FOX Sports 1, White had nothing but praise for “Mighty Mouse” and relayed the following (comments via FOX Sports 1 press release):
“It was a shutout. DJ looked phenomenal. Dodson got destroyed. Mighty Mouse is probably the pound-for-pound best fighter in the sport right now.”
“Mighty Mouse just shut Dodson down so much. He’s an incredible fighter. He imposed his will on him tonight. He’s probably disappointed he didn’t finish him, but he shut him down.”
The victory was Johnson’s ninth straight and marked his seventh title defense.
UFC 191 was hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
