Demetrious Johnson still interested in T.J. Dillashaw superfight, but not the UFC bantamweight belt


Most of the talk about a proposed superfight between UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and flyweight titleholder T.J. Dillashaw has centered on the idea that Dillashaw would go down to 125 pounds and challenge the longest-reigning current UFC champ for his title.


That goes against the grain of most superfights, in which the smaller competitor tends to step up in weight. Such is the case for the last UFC superfight, when lightweight champion B.J. Penn went up and fought welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre in 2009, or the next one, when light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier meets Stipe Miocic at UFC 226.

But Johnson, for his part, has a simple explanation for why Dillashaw would come down to his turf: DJ has no interest in defending the bantamweight title, if he was to defeat Dillashaw at 135.

“I’m going to be frank and honest,” Johnson said on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “If I went up there and beat T.J. Dillashaw at 135 pounds, I have no interest whatsoever in staying at 135. People are like ‘why not?’ and I’m like I have no interest in fighting guys who walk around at 160 pounds.”

Johnson, who had a successful run at 135 pounds before the UFC instituted the flyweight division in 2012, is looking at the big picture, and he wholeheartedly believes that fighting competitors significantly heavier than he is over the long term will not help his prospects.

“That’s going to put more wear and tear on your body,” Johnson said. “You can do X, Y, and Z. I’m looking at the my longevity of my career, I want to fight another 5-6 years whether I win or lose, and I’m going to do that fighting guys my size. You look at the ‘Suga Show,’ Sean O’Malley. The guy is 5-11. My god, I mean, it’s just, it creates more, and obviously I would do it if the money was right, but I’m not going to sit here and argue with somebody who doesn’t believe I should make X, Y, and Z, who believe I should do something.”

Johnson, alas, wasn’t able to offer any hint on when the Dillashaw fight might actually happen. While he says it’s still the fight he most wants, and while he would ideally have the fight at UFC 226 along with Miocic vs. Cormier, he reports that talks have gone “dormant.”

“That’s the fight I want,” Johnson said. “That’s the fight I believe that should go down. I believe the UFC knows that’s the fight that I want. The biggest thing I’ve been really focusing on is letting Malki [Kawa] and Abe [Kawa] at First Round Management handle that stuff. I have, they’re great managers and I told them what I want and they talk to the UFC. I think the talks with Malki and those guys have kind have gone dormant.”

For his part, Johnson says he understands the UFC has other options it can look at, but still believes this is the fight to make.

“At the end of the day, UFC is a business,” Johnson said. “T.J. obviously just won the belt and he’s been the champ for maybe five or six months, and so there’s still a line of contenders he could fight in the division. You have your Dominick Cruz, Jimmie Rivera, the Cody Garbrandt rematch, so they have options for that one. Whereas for me, I have options as well and rematches and whatever. But I think TJ wants this fight because it is probably a bigger paycheck for him, and hopefully for me too, so we’ll see what the UFC wants to do.”

If the Dillashaw fight doesn’t work out, and he instead ends up rematching a prior flyweight opponent such as Henry Cejudo or Joseph Benavidez, then so be it.

“At the end of the day, it’s a paycheck,” Johnson said. “If you’re going to make as much money as you are, when you’re fighting someone else, that’s the one thing I always tell people is I would never turn down the truly rightful No. 1 contender in my division, because the UFC can actually strip you. They can say, you’re not going to fight the No. 1 contender, we can strip you. So okay, you know what, Henry Cejudo is the No. 1 contender, we deem him the legit No. 1 contender, and then I’m going to fight him again blah blah blah, if he’s truly the No. 1 contender I will fight them.”

Johnson, who announced a partnership with the energy drink Xevia on Monday’s MMA Hour, is still going through rehab for a shoulder injury, believes he’ll be ready in time for International Fight Week.

And if it does end up Johnson gets the Dillashaw superfight after all, it will be at 125, because he’s far more interested in building on his record 11 consecutive title defenses than in collecting belts in different weight classes.

“[Dillashaw] wants to make the weight cut,” Johnson said. “He wants to make the weight cut, he wants to be the champ champ and all that jazz. I don’t care about being the champ champ. I want to be the only consecutive 12-time defending champion in any mixed martial arts promotion. … The champ champ is old news nowadays. But you know what is brand-new news? 11-time defending champion.”

The family did not disclose the cause of death, but said he “died peacefully” at his home in Cambridge, England.

“We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years,” the family said in a statement. “His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss him forever.”

He made several major discoveries throughout his career, and once said said his greatest achievement was his discovery that black holes are not entirely black.

“I think my greatest achievement will be my discovery that black holes are not entirely black,” he said, adding how that discovery would be critical to “understanding how paradoxes between quantum mechanics and general relativity can be resolved.”

In a 2010 interview with ABC’s “World New Tonight,” Hawking was asked about the best fatherly advice he’d given.

“Here are the most important pieces of advice that I’ve passed on to my children,” he said. “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember is it rare and don’t throw it away.”

She Dropped Everything To Come Fight For Immigration Reform. She’s Still Waiting.

Undocumented activists, including 19-year-old Arlin, call for legal protections on Capitol Hill.


WASHINGTON — Last September, Karla Aguirre left her family and her South Carolina main residence and loaded onto a flight to Washington, D.C., to battle for her entitlement to stay in the United States. It should be a short outing — there was bipartisan help in Congress for measures to secure undocumented outsiders like her. Nevertheless, over four months after the fact, she is still here.


“There’s no explanation behind me to backpedal home where things will be precisely the same,” Aguirre, 22, said. “The purpose of us being here is to roll out an improvement. … This is my work, to ensure that my family is OK.”


Aguirre is one of several undocumented youngsters who have evacuated their lives to advocate for a bill that would give them lawful status and a way to citizenship. In the country’s capital, they rest in chapels, houses and, less frequently, lodgings. They spend their days planning to go to the Capitol, going to administrators’ workplaces and sharing their stories with expectations of energizing help. They spend their evenings hanging out and talking, frequently excessively drained, making it impossible to do much else. Their type of fun is droning, Aguirre said.


A large number of these youthful activists planned to be home at this point. President Donald Trump proclaimed a conclusion to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, in September, getting under way a procedure that will in the end cause about 700,000 undocumented youngsters to lose two-year work grants and expelling insurances unless Congress ventures in. Trump set a “due date” of March 5, at which time extensive quantities of DACA beneficiaries will start to lose their assurances every day, albeit thousands as of now have. Due to a court administering, DACA beneficiaries can presently apply for an individual reestablishment, yet the Trump organization is battling to stop them.


Democrats guaranteed to push for re-established insurances before the finish of December, and after that again in January, despite everything they’re promising now, yet there haven’t been votes on a DACA charge in either the House or the Senate, which are both controlled by Republicans. Trump offered a system a month ago that the White House said would give a way to citizenship to 1.8 million youthful undocumented outsiders, yet he likewise requested far reaching fringe security assets, a divider, more simplicity in ousting kids and refuge searchers, and inconsequential slices to lawful movement. Democrats and even a few Republicans shot down the thought. Trump is not moving — he said on Tuesday that he would “love to see a shutdown” of the legislature over it.


That implies activists like Aguirre cannot go home yet. She is presently working for United We Dream, a backing bunch drove by undocumented youth. The gathering has been holding instructional courses for approximately 300 undocumented youngsters from around the nation every week ― they come to Washington with their own particular assets or the assistance of contributors ― to show them how to share their stories and push for change. They at that point backpedal home and urge others to do likewise. At the point when undocumented foreigners make visits to officials’ workplaces, Aguirre is frequently on the primary floor of the building, prepared to help on the off chance that anything goes amiss.


Migration advocates firmly trust that individual stories are more compelling than offers to administrators’ political advantages in pushing them to grasp change. Yet, individual stories can be troublesome for undocumented workers to share, given the injury that drove a significant number of them to the U.S. what’s more, the historical backdrop of staying silent about their movement status. Aguirre went to the U.S. with her family when she was 6 years of age, attempting to escape destitution and savagery in Mexico. She initially got DACA assurances in 2013, and her present allow lapses in 2019.


Aguirre went to a semester of school however couldn’t complete a degree as a result of the cost. Albeit a few states offer lower in-state educational cost at state funded colleges to undocumented settlers who grew up there, South Carolina does not. At first, she didn’t see herself reflected in the Dreamer account, which in the past concentrated generally on youngsters in graduation tops and outfits or holding upscale employments. She needs legislators to realize that undocumented youngsters who went to the U.S. as youngsters all merit help ―, as do their families.


Arlin, a 19-year-old DACA beneficiary who asked that her last name be withheld as a result of security concerns, likewise feels the story about Dreamers should be more comprehensive. She cleared out Mexico at age 3 and experienced childhood in a residential area in North Carolina. Arlin moved on from secondary school last June however isn’t going to school in light of the fact that even with grants, it’s excessively costly. (North Carolina likewise banishes undocumented understudies from accepting in-state educational cost.)


Arlin landed in Washington in November for a United We Dream preparing and, as Aguirre, chose to dedicate herself to the reason full-time. She returned later in the month and has been here since, other than a couple of brief breaks for occasions and after the last shutdown. She is associated with a large number of the workplace visits, where undocumented youngsters endeavor to converse with officials face to face. When they can’t, they in some cases decline to forget until the point that they’re kicked.


A few people contend these office takeovers don’t work, Aguirre stated, however she underpins the strategy. They just do it, she stated, in the event that they can’t inspire government officials to converse with the general population who have made a trip far to be there.


The youthful activists have been helped through the high points and low points of the previous months by the feeling of group among those in D.C. Individuals who were conceived everywhere throughout the world and grew up everywhere throughout the U.S. are here in Washington for a similar objective. Arlin has been motivated by got notification from individuals who moved on from school or found their fantasy occupations, and overwhelmed by the stories from individuals living close to the fringe who are hesitant to go to the clinic since its previous a checkpoint. She has found out about companions’ families and after that met them face to face. Individual undocumented promoters now feel like her family, as well.


At the point when Senate Democrats voted a month ago to revive the administration without recharging DACA securities, numerous undocumented youngsters viewed from the exhibition in tears. However, Arlin said she advised them that they are intense.


“We’re undocumented people ― we should make it this far,” she said. “We have individuals who have graduated school, we have individuals with employments, we have individuals in Washington, D.C., in the Capitol, being undocumented, being unafraid and simply yelling out their stories.”
