    Although Demetrious Johnson is the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world and has etched his name into the MMA history books forever, fans wanted to see 'Mighty Mouse' take things a step further and challenge Cody Garbrandt for the bantamweight title.

    Johnson, who defended his flyweight title for the 10th time against Wilson Reis at UFC on FOX 24 this past Saturday, was open to a mega fight against 'No Love' in the past but says both men are on different career paths.

    'DJ' told Ariel Helwani on a recent edition of The MMA Hour that he and Garbrandt had a personal chat behind the scenes and decided that they were not going to fight each other.

    “He’s his own person,” Johnson told Helwani, per MMA Fighting's…

    Don't know why they would not fight.....also, of course he's his own person, not sure what that means

    DJ vs Garbrandt would be a cool fight but I can see why they'd avoid each other for now. Cody just got the belt. DJ has a record to break. Also not enough money in it yet.

    means MM doesn't want to fight him...probably realized the size difference and Cody probably talked smack

    MM likely thinks he deserves upmost respect and doesn't want to fight on principle and it is also safer

    IMO

    Guaranteed a guy under 5'6" wrote that article.

    When I read the names Garbrandt and MM the last thing that comes to mind is "megafight".

    I have zero interest in paying money to see 2 guys fight who could both walk through the tunnels at Chuck E Cheese standing up.

    You fight who ever they tell you you are going to fight.

    Mighty Mouse can chit chat with Cody like two little high school girls chit chat about their biggest crush but it doesn't mean jack shit.

    When WME-IMG tell then they are gonna fight ...then you better believe your sweet ass these two are gonna fight.

    And that's the bottom line son! Cause Stone Cold Steve Austin said so!
