UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson Discusses Fighting For His Family
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.10.2013

- UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson recently spoke about why he fights and how much longer he plans to fight. Here are the highlights…

On Why He Fights: "I want my son and my wife to have a good life and never have to worry about anything," Johnson says. "I wasn't handed anything in this sport, I've never had any easy fights and I've just been working hard to get where I am. I'm not going to set my goal to beat Anderson Silva's title defense record. My bigger end-game goal is when I'm done fighting, I never have to work again."

On When He May Retire: "I'm going to walk away from the sport when I'm financially secure for life," Johnson says. "I don't foresee that until I'm 38. I love doing this sport, and it all comes down to how long my body can last," Johnson says. "I'm only 27, so if the time comes when I'm 34, I'll walk away when I'm 34. But as of right now, I'm set on 38."
