Demetrious Johnson is grateful for the support he receives for his YouTube gaming channel.
‘Mighty Mouse’ has been fighting professionally for over a decade, but it won’t last forever. Most fighters, if not all, need to find a stable financial income when they retire. Luckily, Johnson has a solid option to consider when he ultimately hangs up his gloves.
The reigning ONE flyweight world champion loves to play video games and post reaction videos on his YouTube channel, which currently has 168,000 subscribers. During an interview with SCMP MMA, Johnson had this to say about the support he gets from his family:
“They love it. My wife supports it, obviously. If it wasn’t for her then my gaming channel wouldn’t be taking off. They love it, I love it and it’s like my coping and decompressing.”
Before possibly committing to his YouTube channel full-time, ‘Mighty Mouse’ still has work to do in the circle. The 36-year-old claimed the ONE flyweight world championship in August 2022 against Adriano Moraes, and is now looking to further his legacy by winning the trilogy fight in May.
