Dana White and Demetrious Johnson agree on one thing, the former UFC flyweight champion didn’t get the love and respect he deserved.
White would say as much to TMZ on Sunday night, saying, “I feel like he never really got the love and respect he deserved from the fans.”
“I don’t know if he was always thrilled being here, so hopefully, he’s a lot happier where he’s headed now.”
Johnson was traded over the weekend to ONE Fighting Championship for former Bellator and ONE Championship welterweight champion, Ben Askren.
With Askren calling out anyone and everyone in the UFC, White claims that “Funky’s” first opponent will be top of the line.
“We’re still working on it,” White said to TMZ, “He’s definitely gonna fight somebody in the Top 5.”
