Demetrious Johnson is the only champion in UFC flyweight history, and that’s because he’s the real deal, a pound-for-pound monster of 125-pound proportions who can do it all. But can he deal with the Olympic-level wrestling of challenger Henry Cejudo? Probably, but we’ll see.
The bout begins with “Mighty Mouse” firing off low-kicks to the challenger’s lead leg. The addition of punches and elbows comes when Cejudo clinches with him, and though Cejudo puts him down with an inside reap-takedown, Johnson kicks him away and gets back to his feet. More clinching by Cejudo is met with knees to the dome, and then he’s stunned and Mighty Mouse is on him like a swarm of bees, stinging his crumpled form until the referee jumps in.
Johnson is the best, and Olympic gold medals mean nothing once that cage door shuts.
Result: Demetrious Johnson def. Henry Cejudo via TKO (Punches) at 2:49, R1
