Demetrious Johnson responds to Israel Adesanya naming him the GOAT, believes Adesanya is ‘on his way’

Demetrious Johnson is happy to be the GOAT on the list of a fast-rising superstar who could take that spot in the coming years.

Johnson, a former, longtime UFC flyweight champion and current ONE Championship flyweight grand prix champion, hasn’t been able to compete in 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Once Khabib Nurmagomedov submitted Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 and announced his retirement, the greatest of all-time debates began to surface once again.

In a recent interview with Submission Radio, current UFC middleweight champion, and one of the sport’s biggest stars Israel Adesanya gave his thoughts on the GOAT debate.
