Demetrious Johnson Discusses Staying Humble as Champion
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.23.2013



- Demetrious Johnson recently spoke about staying humble as champion and more. Here are the highlights…

On Staying Humble and Living a Normal Life: "I'm still cleaning out the litter box, still making breakfast every morning, still washing the dishes and folding my underwear," Johnson said. "Even before I went into the fight against Joseph, I thought about it and knew two things were going to happen: 'I'm going to win, or lose. The one thing that's not going to change after this fight, regardless if I win or lose, is I'm going to go home and train and keep getting better.' Same thing's going to happen after this fight if I win or lose. I'm going to go home, and the litter box is still going to need to be cleaned, dishes are going to need to be washed and I'm still going to be training."

On His Loss to Dominick Cruz: "Coming off that loss to Dominick Cruz, it was a good learning experience," he said. "Dominick Cruz is a great champion, and that's when I obviously started training full-time. Previous to that, I was working 40 hours a week at my construction job. But I've got the belt at 125 (now), and I keep on learning and training."

On How People See Him: "I don't want people to like me because I'm the flyweight champion," he said. "I want people to like me because I'm just a down-to-earth guy. I know I'm not going to be champion forever. When I'm 36 years old, I'm sure there's going to be some young buck who's 6-(foot)-1, and he'll come in and just work me and everyone will say, 'You suck!' I'm just a down-to-earth guy. Fighting's just my craft – and I seem to be good at it."
