    Reigning UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson continues to prove his worth as the sport’s current top pound-for-pound fighter. On Saturday night at UFC on Fox, he submitted Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Wilson Reis in the third round, equaling Anderson Silva’s record for ten consecutive title defenses.

    Despite Johnson’s record-setting performance, he still cannot seem to get the respect he richly deserves. After the fight, it was later noted that the card’s overnight ratings dropped to an all-time low in UFC on FOX history.

    From his end, “Mighty Mouse” seems unbothered by the ratings, while recognizing that the said event may have had very little promotional…

    The sooner the media stop measuring a fighter's worth in PPV numbers the better

    Hard to bitch about how much you get paid when you have no fanbase.

    and even harder to get a fanbase when people go on about how many fans you don't have.. Contrast the promotion if you will, McGregor: "THE WHOLE COUNTRY OF IRELAND HAS LITERALLY STOPPED TO WATCH THIS FIGHT"
    DJ: " Lowest gate ever, people started leaving, literally nobody cares, why don't people like you?"

    It's like a guy trying to get laid while a cockblock goes on about how he can't get laid. Its not gonna happen.

    Well to be fair I doubt anyone from Seattle made the trip to see DJ fight last weekend other than his family and coaches. When Conor Mac fights the Irish show up in mass.
