Dana White Slams Demetrious Johnson For Having ‘Lowest-Selling Pay-Per-View’ Buys In Modern UFC History

UFC President Dana White has not taken kindly to Demetrious Johnson’s accusations of bullying by the UFC, and he does not have much good to say about the Flyweight Champion.

In an interview with TMZ Sports quoted by MMA Mania, White threw a heavy amount of shade in Mighty Mouse’s direction, claiming that his pay-per-view buys have been less than stellar (to put it gently) and that Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC.

“He didn’t want Pay-Per-View,” White told TMZ. “He wanted upfront money, no Pay-Per-View. He wasn’t very confident in his abilities to sell Pay-Per-Views. He has the lowest-selling Pay-Per-View in the history of the UFC in the modern era.”

“The media claims he’s the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world,” the UFC President said in another portion of the interview. “I think Conor McGregor is the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world. If you look at what that really means, what pound-for-pound means, and Conor doesn’t give a sh*t, he’ll fight anybody, anywhere, anytime. And if Demetrious is the pound-for-pound best guy in the world, then fight T.J. Dillashaw. Fight somebody that people will actually care about and be interested in, and there you go.”
