Alright just a heads up, we know you’re all sick of hearing about this by now, so this is the last one for a while… but this video recently surfaced, of Dana White just totally singing Johnson’s praises, and it’s pretty funny after hearing Mighty Mouse’s side of the story.
Quote from Dana White:
“This kid could be considered the GOAT right now.” – Dana White, on Mighty Mouse.
Also quote from Dana White:
“Listen, the media claims he’s the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world,” [Editor’s note: See below where DANA WHITE MADE THIS CLAIM IN HIS OWN WORDS.] White said. “I think Conor McGregor is the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world. If you look at what that really means, what pound-for-pound means, and Conor doesn’t give a sh*t, he’ll fight anybody, anywhere, anytime. And if Demetrious is the pound-for-pound best guy in the world, then fight T.J. Dillashaw. Fight somebody that people will actually care about and be interested in, and there you go.”
It’s worth noting that Conor hasn’t competed in the past 2 months, so Dana’s basically just talking out of his ass, since what’s changed since then? When it suits him, he’ll say mighty mouse is #1 P4P and the GOAT, and when it suits him he’ll say it’s Conor, who has never even defended a goddamned belt. No disrespect to Conor… but #1 P4P? Really?
Here’s a video of Dana White just a couple of months ago saying Mighty Mouse is the best fighter in the UFC, the #1 pound for pound, and he’s REALLY close to saying he’s the greatest of all time, he basically says it but then decided to pull back his statement just a little bit. None the less, however you interpret it, that’s some very high praise.
