He revealed the same during a recent interview where he also recalled his stint in wrestling where it was all about respect according to him.

“I come from the sport of wrestling where there’s nothing but respect on the mat. In MMA, it’s a sport, but it’s entertainment, too. Look at Colby Covington. The guy can fight and the guy can talk. To a lot of people he just grinds people out, and many people consider him boring, but because he opens his mouth, people want to watch him fight. A lot of people want to see him win, a lot of people want to see him lose. There’s more eyes on him. I’ve learned that in MMA it’s the entertainment side. I’m grasping that from now on. If I have to pick on somebody to get the fight, then that’s what I have to do, especially for the flyweight division,” he said via MMA Junkie.

UFC 227 will also have the UFC Bantamweight title match between TJ Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt apart from the Flyweight showdown between Johnson and Cejudo.
