"This will definitely be the fight that helps me to get the respect I've been looking for, for a long time".
"When you're saying, 'I'll fight anybody, anytime.' You're f-king full of shit".
The boxing match between Mayweather vs. McGregor was more exciting than what people hyped it was going to be. Some of the sport's brightest prospects are set to continue their journeys at the card, and Demetrious Johnson may break Anderson Silva's record of ten consecutive title defenses when he squares off against Ray Borg.
That's where Johnson is at now and yet there still seems to be a segment of the fight-loving population who would rather watch an ugly brawl between two unranked heavyweights than Johnson deliver another masterful performance inside the Octagon.
"They were going to go to the festival". There have been interim title fights and two bouts for the vacant women's featherweight title, however there are also three weight classes where the title has yet to be defended for one reason or another.
"So after this one, maybe I might give him a shot at the title. I'm gonna be always the main event". When I feel most alive is during a fight and in the cage. Borg is a good fighter and a strong prospect in the flyweight division, but he'll be up against one of the all-time greats in this one.

Cyrus, who is doing a weeklong residency at The Tonight Show , also participated - holding back tears as she wrote her note. And there was something he had to do: give his female writers an opportunity to thank her in person.
"I don't know", Johnson said.
"Ray is the most well-rounded, complete fighter that DJ has ever faced", added Gibson.
"With Kevin Lee, I saw an opponent that was young, hungry and wants the world. I fight for myself", Borg said on a recent conference call. After a poolside haircut, opponent Kevin Lee gets his heart rate up with laps in a race vehicle.
"I am bringing all of that; the people that were harmed and injured or are not here anymore". But there have been four different champions in each of those divisions during that time, while Johnson has remained the lone man at the helm of the 125-pound ranks. My teammates know I'm the real deal. "I hope that resonates", Lee said.
"At the end of the day I had to sit back and look at it - this Saturday is going to be a celebration". It's not about pleasing anybody.
