Every UFC fighter has an origin story … and for Demetrious Johnson, his fight career started by the elementary school flagpole — in a throwdown over WWE wrestling.
Mighty Mouse joined the guys on the “TMZ Sports” TV show (airs tonight on FS1) — and was asked if he remembers the first time he was punched in the face.
DJ recalled it like it was yesterday — and says he was forced to defend The Rock’s honor when another kid said pro wrestling was fake.
What started … was the beginning of a beautiful (and violent) career — a 26-2 record, a 12-fight win streak and a huge match at UFC 216 in Vegas this weekend.
Check out the entire interview tonight on FS1.
