Demetrious Johnson talks Kyoji Horiguchi on America's Pregame

DEMETRIOUS JOHNSON TALKS KYOJI HORIGUCHI ON FOX SPORTS 1's AMERICA'S PREGAME
By Elias Cepeda, FOX Sports
Demetrious Johnson has spent the past three years fighting for or defending world titles in the UFC. "Mighty Mouse" spent the first five-plus years of his MMA career splitting his time between fighting and a factory day job.

"It was in a warehouse in Tacoma where we recycled paper to make boards to protect televisions during the shipping process," Johnson recounts for us.

Back then, Johnson's days and nights were a lot longer, with little rest in between. "I would get up at 6 a.m., be at work by 7 a.m., get two 15-minute breaks and get off work by 3," he remembers.

"From there, I'd shoot down to the gym, at the time I did CrossFit so it was a CrossFit gym. I'd do my conditioning work then drive to the fight gym and train there from 5 to 7. I'd get home at 8, eat dinner with the girlfriend, who is now my wife. Then, we'd go to bed, wake up and do it all over again."
