Charles Johnson Interview (1:56)
Kicking off this week’s edition of TTP is an interview with Charles Johnson, newly signed UFC flyweight. He discusses his fight at UFC London with highly touted Muhammad Mokaev. The narrative around that fight was that none of the tough guys in the division wanted to fight Mokaev, so they had to go sign Johnson to do so. However, Johnson disagrees with the way that it’s being portrayed. In addition to an interesting insight on all of that, Johnson also talks about the experience advantage he has in the fight. Plus, he shares some very high level training he’s gotten with a close friend outside of the MMA bubble.
