“I’m going to break Anderson Silva’s record”

October 13, 2015 10:14 am by Chris Taylor

UFC Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (23-2-1 MMA) does not give a damn who his next opponent is going to be.

“Mighty Mouse” is solely focused on one goal, and that’s breaking Anderson Silva’s record of 10 consecutive world title defenses.

“I don’t give a damn,” Johnson told MMA Junkie when asked who he wanted to fight next. “I just want to fight.”

DJ won the UFC’s inaugural flyweight title in 2012, this by earning a split decision victory over Joseph Benavidez at UFC 152 in Toronto. Since then, Johnson has defended his title seven times, earning four of those seven victories by way of stoppage.

Joseph Benavidez (23-4 MMA) is the current top contender in the 125-pound division, and although Johnson has defeated Joe twice in the past, “Mighty Mouse” is still down for a trilogy bout:

“People are saying Joseph might be next, which is fine,” Johnson said. “I’m a competitor. … I want to fight whoever is going to get me to that number – breaking the record for title defenses.”
