UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw’s much discussed superfight with dominating flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson isn’t happening. At least, not for the moment.
According to Dillashaw, that’s no fault of his. Apparently, he was all for this massive showdown, but Johnson wasn’t. In fact, he was told the flyweight champ was “too scared” to accept the fight.
“As far as I was told, UFC said they wanted it,” Dillashaw said Monday on The MMA Hour (via MMAMania). “They keep telling me Demetrious Johnson was too scared to accept the fight. He might say differently, I don’t really know. When it comes down to it, I am not going to continue to push hard for something that is not going to happen. I can’t wait around forever to get paid.”
