Demetrious Johnson: I simply don't allow challengers to take my UFC belt

Sometimes UFC fighters get a talking to from promotion executives when they go too far in an interview or on social media. In fact, some fighters' comments have been deemed so out of bounds that they were released for them.
UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson recently got a talking to from Dave Sholler, the UFC's vice president of pubic relations about interviews he had been given. However, during the conversation, Johnson wasn't told to reign it in at all, but rather Sholler told him to let loose, more.

"I've been knowing Dave Sholler since my WEC years and I've come a long way in my career. Now he's just trying to help me blossom into a beautiful flower, I guess you could say."
