He still needs to clean out the flyweight division...
Demetrious Johnson recently spoke about a potential move to bantamweight and more. Check out the highlights:
On a potential move to bantamweight: "I don't want to say it's not in my future. When Dana White talks about [Georges St-Pierre] (and) Anderson Silva fighting each other, or Jon Jones-Anderson Silva, he always says, ‘They're going to make a lot of money.' Now, if Dana White comes to me and says, ‘Ya know, Demetrious, you've cleaned out the whole flyweight division – now I'd like you to go up to the bantamweight division,' he's got to make it worth my while."
On the flyweight division: "I believe the UFC is doing a great job getting more flyweights in the division, and I don't think I've cleaned out the division until I've beaten everybody in the division. If they've never gotten a chance at a title shot, it doesn't matter to me. If I haven't beaten everybody there, then I haven't cleaned it out."
