Demetrious Johnson says Angela and Christian Lee should take a few years off

ONE World Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson is one of the most collected and compassionate fighters in the sport. ‘Mighty Mouse’ has been open in the past about how his older sister’s death affected him and made him fall in love with training again, accepting each day and trying to get better.

In a recent interview with SCMP MMAJohnson shared some kind words about Christian and Angela Lee who recently announced the death of their sister Victoria:

“Whenever you’re ready to come back and compete, come back and compete. If you don’t want to compete, you don’t have to compete. There’s more to life than just trying to get back to the cage and the circle side and be competitive. Take two years, three years off and enjoy your daughter. i know christian [Lee] they have a child and I know that Angela has a child. Take off and be a parent for a while. Fighting gets nowhere, this shit gets nowhere. It will be here when you are ready to come back. Take your time, take all the time you need to get your thoughts right.”

Demetrious Johnson on his fight commentary with Rich Franklin and Mitch Chilson

While Demetrious Johnson is usually seen in the circle competing at the highest level, he was a viewer and commentator on ONE Fight Night 6.

Johnson joined Mitch Chilson and Rich Franklin on the commentary booth and lent his voice for the second half of the event’s broadcast. As one of the brightest minds in sport, it’s hard to match his level of analysis and expertise, which provided great insight at ONE’s first event of the year.

After the show, Demetrious Johnson reflected on the experience of taking off the gloves and picking up a mic:

“Oh, that was great. I know Mitch and Rich Franklin. We’ve trained together in the past and these guys all know their stuff and I loved it.

While fans are excited that he’s bringing something new to the commentary booth, they’re more excited to see his return at ONE Fight Night 10. Live from 1stBank Center in Colorado, ONE Championship will make its US debut with a main event that is appropriate to a historic date.

Demetrious Johnson will look to end his rivalry with Adriano Moraes by defending his world flyweight title in the pairs trilogy match on May 5.
