UFC’s Kyoji Horiguchi Eyes Rematch With DJ: ‘I Want The Belt Soon’

October 1, 2015 12:46 am by BJPENN.COM News

Currently, we don’t know what’s next for UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson. He just recently fought John Dodson in a rematch and dominated him for five rounds to defend his belt.

The division seems to be in a little bit of a wait and see phase as far as title challengers go. Just about all of the top flyweights have already challenged, and lost, to the champ. There’s been talks of Henry Cejudo being next, but he’s got a fight coming up in Mexico he has to get through first.

This past weekend former title challenger Kyoji Horiguchi defeated Chico Camus in a three round scrap. The fighter looked good in his return to the cage after losing to Might Mouse.

After the fight, at the post fight press conference, Horiguchi talked about his fight with Camus and said that he doesn’t have any opponents in mind for his next fight, but want’s to fight for the belt again soon.

“If I show that kind of move to my opponent, it makes him focus on it, so I just wanted to show the move to my opponent to make him focus on it more (so I could strike). I tried ground positions a lot, so I wanted to go for takedowns.”

“Not in particular (is there an opponent I want to fight next). I want the belt soon.”
