“For me, I’m just trying to make…like fighters have a short opportunity to make as much money as possible, and this is going to be the biggest fight of my life. It’s the biggest thing in my career that I’ve ever done, and obviously when I am going up in weight and I’m, you know, I don’t wanna…since I haven’t been defeated since I fought Dominick Cruz. And me going up to fight TJ Dillashaw there’s a, you know, potential chance I could lose that fight. So I’m trying to cash out and make some money on the super-fight, because I know the UFC would do very good numbers with it and it will also, I mean, it will be a sold out crowd.”

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson recently talked to Submission Radio and mentioned that he would like to ‘cash out’ with a big super fight against bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw.

Of course, Johnson has upcoming title challenger John Dodson to take care of first. If he does get through him though, an eventual fight with Dillashaw could be exciting. Both are extremely fast and utilize technical footwork and striking, however, the power advantage would obviously go to Dillashaw, who’s been putting people away with his punches.

Who do you think would win the hypothetical fight?
