    Seems like it's only a matter of time for it, who will be left for Mighty Mouse? We know he's not happy with his PPV points and pay and this is definitely the money fight era. This fight would push the needle, the fighters want it, the fans for sure want it. Surely it will be headlining a major card on the run up to Christmas?

    MM said that shipped has sailed in an interview. That’s he's over it and only wants flyweights

    DJ wants to be paid, UFC won’t oblige. Fight won’t happen, DJ will continue to rack up these title defenses and probably retire after 20 defenses.

    But if TJ can make 125 does that qualify him as a flyweight?<seedat>

    I hope the snake crawls down the 125 hole and shuts that mouse up once and for all.

    If DC vs Stipe didn't push the needle, then sadly, I doubt that potential fight wouldn't push the needle either. Especially being both fighterd are not marketed by the UFC that well, compared to other ex Champs/Champs/prospects/contenders. DJ also recently said the ship has sailed on that fight, unless he is paid more.. something DC and Stipe weren't offered in their fight. But being Cody is being pushed by the UFC, and both men have said they wanted that fight before TJ mentioned it, and both have recently said they could still be open to it, I could see a potential effort made by the UFC for that fight to happen.. Cody vs DJ, when their ESPN deal goes into effect full time.

    MM doesn't want that fight, he's all about that above ground pool money.

    I don't think DJ and Handsome belong in the same sentence together.

    Shouldn’t TJ be defending in his own division first before chasing super fights? Maybe avenge his Cruz loss?

    Johnson doesn't deserve it. Let him fade away into virtual obscurity and endless rematches.
