The UFC flyweight division is looking for a new challenger to face champion Demetrious Johnson, and UFC 164 fighter Louis Gaudinot might be the man for the job.
Gaudinot currently only has one win in the UFC at 125 pounds, but it's an impressive victory over John Lineker, who has since won his last three fights in a row.
His next matchup comes at UFC 164 against Tim Elliott in a pivotal fight that could propel Gaudinot directly into title contention.
"Hopefully after this one it can get me a No. 1 contender's match, or something like that," Gaudinot told Bleacher Report recently. "Like I said, it's wide open, I'm looking to break into the top three or four."
Gaudinot might just do better than the top three or four with a win because, during a recent exchange with Johnson on Twitter, it appeared the champion was ready to welcome him to a title fight should he get past Elliott.
"I'll be waiting," Johnson said when responding to Gaudinot's challenge.
In the interview, Gaudinot also explained how his feud with fellow flyweight Ian McCall started and how it escalated to the point where they are both chomping at the bit for a fight.
The green-haired flyweight also gave his theories on what it takes for the 125-pound division to truly take off.
