Demetrious Johnson is probably the best fighter to ever set foot in the Octagon, but like a cursed character in a Greek tragedy, he’s got about as much traction with fans of the sport as Oedipus has with the good citizens of Thebes.
“Mighty Mouse” will be headlining UFC 215 in Canada in a few weeks, and Ray Borg is the man that gets to stand on the opposite end of the cage. Will it be a good fight? Probably for Johnson it will be, but for Borg – and us watching – it’s going to suck. Technical? Yes. But boring as hell.
Here’s Johnson in action. He is a dominant fighter for sure. It’s just… I don’t know, seeing a fighter get owned for 25 minutes gets tedious.
