The potential super-fight between the current UFC flyweight champion, Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and the current UFC bantamweight champion, T.J. Dillashaw has been creating a lot of headlines lately. It’s arguably the most talked about super-fight currently in the world of MMA. However, their potential bout has been delayed, allegedly because of Johnson not getting the pay-cheque he had demanded for the fight. Many people have given their views on their bout. The most recent one to join the list is former professional fighter, turned coach, Duane Ludwig. Ludwig has stated his views on the super-fight and has also revealed his idea for a back-up fight for Dillashaw.

“Mighty Mouse” recently created history, when he defeated top contender Ray Borg via submission due to a flying armbar, by setting a new record for successive title defenses with 11. He has been linked for a super-fight with Dillashaw for around eight months.

T.J. Dillashaw had previously lost the belt to Dominick Cruz.

Dillashaw who possesses an impressive MMA record of 15-3, won back the bantamweight title in his last fight. He defeated bitter rival Cody Garbrandt via KO due to punches at UFC 217 to win back the belt. He had previously lost his title to Dominick Cruz via a close split decision.

Ludwig, who trains many popular MMA fighters including Dillashaw, recently gave an interview to BJ In the interview, he talked about the potential reasons for the delay in a super-fight between D.J. and T.J. He also revealed that he would like Dillashaw to fight Cruz if a figt with Johnson fails to happen. Here’s what he had to say:

[The] holdup is probably dates and money, I’m assuming, I really don’t know what the hold up is, because I’m not in on those meetings and I don’t really want to be. I have focused my efforts on the actual martial arts aspect, of improving TJ and his martial arts in general. I’m teaching him and finding out, again, what actually works. But the business side, I try to let them figure that out on their own.

What’s Cruz’s situation, now? For me, personally, I would like to see that [rematch]. So Demetrious, and then – or – Cruz.
