Dana White plans to move forward with Mighty Mouse vs. Dillashaw

Dana White confirms he is still hoping to make Mighty Mouse vs. Dillashaw superfight.

It has been no secret that the UFC, and in particular Dana White, have been going all-in in recent months in their attempts to book a flyweight title bout between champion Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson and the newly-crowned bantamweight supremo TJ Dillashaw.

Johnson turned down a potential bout with Dillashaw several months ago, preferring instead to defend the 125-pound crown against Ray Borg — a fight which brought another spectacular finish and the record for the most consecutive title defenses. But now, and with a no clear contender currently waiting in the wings in the flyweight division, the timing might be right for the a champion vs. champion bout at 125.

Speaking to the media after last weekend’s UFC 218 card in Detroit UFC president Dana White reaffirmed his commitment in making the Mighty Mouse vs. Dillashaw fight, saying: “Yeah, that fight’s going to happen. We haven’t announced it yet.”

However, Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting reports that the fight, while clearly in the promotion’s sights, is no clearer to being done now that it has been in the past.
The Nose wrote:I’m told the fight is nowhere near done. They want it but no closer to done than it was the night of UFC 217 when Dillashaw won.


Meanwhile, Dillashaw posted a video to Instagram which shows him in the process of what his strength and conditioning coach refers to as a 20 week, 64-p0und mass reduction with the goal of making their fighter eligible for 125-pound title contention.

Bit of a high risk low reward fight for Mighty Mouse.

He is much smaller than Dillashaw and apparently isn't being offered too much monetary incentive for the fight. Not to mention doubt this fight is that large a draw, even if its being billed as a super fight.

Hey dillweed why don't you try to go up in weight not down like a bitch. Defend in your own weight class. This dude is a weasel

He tries really hard making it sound badass to challenge MM. :lol:

It's a good move for him though. Smaller opponent and the chance to get 2 belts. Hope Johnson ruins his plans. :fb

To be honest I think mouse beats him. Too smart and too complete of a fighter. Cruz beat an old version of MM. Also Cruz is a master of game plan which Turkey Jizz is not

This will be a great fight - MM has to wait for current flyweight challengers (that he hasn't beaten) to step up anyways...
 
 
If Dilladonk makes the weight, why is he a bitch?  MM & other flyweights cut a shit-load of weight too.  MM is ranked #1 in UFC pound for pound = time to prove it!
 

This will be MM's 1st real test in awhile + it will give Dillasnake a chance to hide from Cruz and/or a Cody rematch....
