Former dancer Vanessa Demopoulos thinks Johnny Walker would make a good stripper.
UFC strawweight Vanessa Demopoulos quit stripping just before her win at UFC 270, but she thinks Johnny Walker would make a potentially great replacement for the role.
Demopoulos is fresh off her win over Silvana Gomez Juarez at UFC 270 via first-round submission. Just minutes after her win, she did the splits in the center of the octagon and jumped into UFC commentator Joe Rogan’s arms during their interview.
Demopoulos’ personality has shined through since her latest victory in the cage, and she’s proven to be someone who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. This includes when it comes to which UFC fighters would make good strippers.
During a recent interview on Jab, Cross, Hook, Demopoulos put Walker near the top of her list.
Vanessa Demopoulos tabs Johnny Walker as a potentially good stripper
“I feel like Johnny Walker has a little bit of a stripper vibe to him,” Demopoulos said. “He’s got the personality, he’s always dancing, he’s got the moves. Definitely Johnny Walker, he’s on the best stripper list.”
Walker is set to face Jamahal Hill in the UFC Vegas 48 main event this weekend. He’s looking to get back on track after losses in three of his last four fights.
Walker, like Demopoulos, has become an intriguing personality for many UFC fans. He alluded to his love of painting during his UFC Vegas 48 pre-fight press conference.
Demopoulos is awaiting her next opponent in the cage after winning two of her last three. She signed with the UFC last year following a long tenure in LFA and falling short of a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2020.
It’s unclear if Walker will realize his UFC potential after his recent struggles, but Demopoulos believes he could be a welcomed addition at a local strip club when he stops fighting.
