Mighty Mouse 'would be a survivor' on The Walking Dead

Fighter Lifestyle

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious 'Mighty Mouse' Johnson recently took a break from dominating the 125lb weight class to discuss his favorite TV shows, music and other aspects of his lifestyle in an exclusive interview with Fighters Only magazine.


What genre of music do you gravitate towards most?

“I listen to all types of music. I will listen to country when my wife is listening to it. I like Carrie Underwood. Other than that I listen to rap. I listen to some rock ‘n’ roll, too. There is no particular song in rock ‘n’ roll that I like, but there are plenty of songs I don’t.”

OK, what rock ‘n’ roll track do you hate?

“Plenty... Like, my one buddy turns on Weezer (starts singing Say it Ain’t So) I’m like, ‘Turn it off !’ He tells me that’s rock ‘n’ roll. But I tell him, ‘That’s f**king garbage.’ So, yeah, it depends on the song.”

Any particular rap song?

“It all depends on the track and the beat and, of course, my mood. That song, ‘I’m in love with the CoCo’ (CoCo by OT Genasis), when I first heard it I thought it was stupid, but since that whole thing with Jon Jones happened and everybody started playing it, it’s grown on me. It’s kind of catchy. I like it... The song, not the CoCo!”

Any rap artists in particular?

“I like Lil Wayne, Young Money, 2 Chainz, I like new stuff and some old school stuff. I still like 2Pac a lot. And I like Kanye West. I liked him before, but I like him a lot more after I saw him in concert.”

Has your taste in music changed over the years?

“I’ve shifted towards more rock ‘n’ roll music. If it’s legit and I like how the guy is singing and there’s a guy screaming in the background backing him up, these guys are f**king rocking out!”

If you could walk out to one song for the rest of your career what would it be and why?

“If I could chop it up the way I wanted to I would pick Dance Gavin Dance track The Jiggler. I would come out to that every single time.”


Are there certain shows or a series that you can’t miss right now?

“We always watch Battle of the Exes or Real World Challenges. And The Walking Dead. My wife likes Sister Wives and she’s also into that House Hunters stuff . I actually like Love it or List It. We watch all kinds of shows. Every Monday I get home and I’m like, ‘Babe, Teen Wolf is on!’ We put Tyren to bed. I sit there with my chicken and asparagus and I’m like, ‘Get ‘em!’”

If you could be on any TV show what would you want to star in?

The Walking Dead. I would be a survivor. I would be like, ‘Rick, it’s not the right thing to do. You know better than that.’ He would be like, ‘I know DJ but we got to make it!’”

Are you a TiVo guy or do you subscribe?

“I’ve got Netflix. I watched from season one all the way through season 15 of The Office. I would just sit there and watch it for hours. I liked Pam and I loved Dwight Schrute and Schrute Farms, of course.”

What shows did you enjoy growing up?

The Simpsons. Every Sunday me and my brother would just down and watch The Simpsons. We would eat it up. Every Sunday at 8am on Channel 13 Fox. We never missed it.”
