Demetrious Johnson: “MMA Is The Easiest Sport To Become A World Champion In”

Anyone who’s ever trained mixed martial arts (MMA) will tell you that it is a tough sport. As you climb through the ranks towards the professional levels, it gets even tougher.

And, well, it doesn’t get much tougher than being at Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson‘s level.

Former UFC and current ONE Championship flyweight world champion, Johnson is considered by many to be the greatest pound-for-pound fighters in the history of MMA.

However, Mighty Mouse believes that MMA is the easiest sport to become a world champion in.
He compared it to boxing, as emphasized in a recent TikTok video:

Mixed martial arts is the easiest sport to become champion in.
When you fight boxing, it’s boxing. Every person you fight in boxing is going to be good in boxing.

When you fight mixed martial arts, you’re gonna have people who have significant big holes in them, right?
You have a guy like Alex Pereira…6-1 and he becomes a champion in mixed martial arts.

You can have no wrestling experience and become a world champion.
You look at Brock Lesnar, he became a world champion and he had no stand-up experience whatsoever.

Johnson concludes:

That’s why I feel MMA is the easiest to become a world champion. You can have deficiencies and still become a champion.

In boxing, you can’t.
You have to be a good boxer to become a world champion, you just have to.
