UFC’s flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson hasn’t been holding back lately when talking about his rough relationship with fans.
He always seems to be questioned for low numbers and criticized for not being a big draw. It seems now he’s tired of trying to please everyone and just accepts what the situation is.
He’s said several times leading up to UFC 191 that he simply doesn’t care what the fans think of him.
He went out there and dominated John Dodson in five rounds and retained his title at UFC 191 on Saturday. After the fight he was asked about the boos in the audience and if they bothered him. Again, Johnson didn’t hesitate and said exactly how he felt.
Here’s what he said:
“No … they booed Andre Arlovksi and Frank Mir, and I think they may have booed Anthony Johnson. Fans are … fans. They’re just f—ing idiots.”
How do you feel about Johnson and his attitude towards the fans?
