UFC Flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson talks about Tyron Woodley and racism
Demetrious Johnson on Tyron Woodley and racism:
“Everybody just misunderstands Tyron when he talks about that. But I understand where he’s coming from.
“I don’t want to say it’s an issue. Because obviously I’ve been promoted very well as the flyweight champion. But can I say that people might feel there is? Yeah, probably people feel it. But I don’t think [UFC president] Dana White has ever been like, ‘I’m not gonna look at that [expletive], he’s black. Get somebody else in front of me.’ I don’t think Dana White is doing that. But I’m saying if people feel that way, it’s possible that some people feel that way. That’s just how it is.”
UFC flyweight champion told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour.
