    A lot of people scream that TJ is a coward for wanting to fight the smaller man, as if that is always an advantage. Do you remember what happened to Conor McGregor who fought the smaller man in Floyd?


    Demetrious Johnson's gameplan revolves heavily around his ability to set a high pace. He even admits himself that he feels he is gifted in this department. If he fights TJ Dillashaw (who has a good stamina output), he will be fighting at a weight class where he has prepared for a 5 round fight over 11 times, and TJ Dillashaw has not once.

    Yeah but DJ and TJ have comparable skill in mma. Conor and Floyd had a large skill gap even though Floyd was alot older.

    There is nothing cowardly about losing the weight to go down and fight anyone in a division below.

    Only stupid people would think that. If he was calling him out and demanding he move up and out of his division that would be cowardly.

    Floyd has boxed real pro boxers at 154, moron. I wasn't talking about McGregor.

    I wasn't talking about Conor, he's had numerous fights at 154...including Canelo Álvarez.
