UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw is adamant his 'super fight' with UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson will happen in his attempt to follow Conor McGregor's footsteps and become a simultaneous multi-weight UFC Champion. 

Dillashaw told the Submission Radio Podcast, the balls in Johnson's court for this mega fight.

"I mean, the fight for me is Demetrious Johnson. The UFC wants it, I want it, the fans want it, so it makes sense," Dillashaw said.

"Now it’s all about Demetrious Johnson accepting the challenge. The ball’s in his court for this big fight."

Dillashaw detailed exactly how he would beat Johnson, who is considered the G-O-A-T in the world of Mixed Martial Arts.

"As of lately he’s looked great and he’s finished his opponents, but the problem with his opponents is that I feel like they’ve got weaknesses that he’s been able to exploit," he said.

"He’s been able to push that cardio, he’s been able to take the fight to where they’re weak. I don’t have those weaknesses.

"I’m very well-rounded, I’m gonna be able to last the entire time, I have as good if not better cardio than he does and I’m a heavy hitter.

"So really, what it comes down to is that he can’t play those games, he can’t go out there and find a weakness on me and exploit it. I’m gonna be able to hang with him everywhere if not better."
