UFC Champ Demetrious Johnson on Fighting Games, Streaming, and Fans

We play ‘Battlegrounds’ and interview the 11-time flyweight champion.

Last Friday, we had the great pleasure—and honor—of hosting Demetrious Johnson for a morning of Breakfast and Battlegrounds, followed up by a live recording of Waypoint Radio. "Mighty Mouse" told us all about his past with games and how he got into streaming, his work in broadcasting for esports, the virtues of being a well-rounded fighter, and finding parallels from real-life fighting in game combat.


We also got into game fans vs. fight fans, and, as usual, the champ pulled no punches.

Check out our full Waypoint Radio interview above, and our Battlegrounds matches below:
