Back to training after a serious shoulder injury, Demetrious Johnson (17-2-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) aims to exhaust John Moraga (12-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) when they meet at UFC on FOX 8, which takes place July 27 at Seattle's KeyArena.

"I would prefer to go five rounds to see if he can go that far," Johnson recently said.

A torn labrum forced the UFC flyweight champion to withdraw from a headlining fight this past month against Moraga at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale, but it didn't stop him from staying in shape.

Now, he wants to see whether Moraga has the gas to keep up with him.

Lame. When fighters say shit like this it just means: I've decided to play it safe and will gladly take my unanimous decision.

And just when I thought the little guys couldn't get any weaker.

Side note: they need to bring back the tiny cage for the tiny fighters.

25 minutes of trying to finish is much different than 25 minutes of point scoring. the 1st takes balls, the second is just fighting for money

Any man that steps into the cage has balls. It doesn't matter how long you're in there for.

GSP vs. Johnson for realest man and the man with biggest balls in the UFC.

Would love to see what type of belt the winner would get.

UFC 152 disagrees

Yeah that's a tough one. They are both boring in their own ways. GSP is like a straight jacket. He just holds you tight for twenty five minutes but Mighty Mouse is like a hummingbird just floating around out of range without the ability of doing any real damage.

So I would have to say the belt would have a golden hummingbird with massive balls bound in a straight jacket with a shit load of sponsor logos on it.
