UFC flyweight champion Demtrious Johnson put on a show in the main event of last night’s UFC on Fox 9 event from Sacramento, knocking out number one contender Joseph Benavidez with one huge punch.
Benavidez, a key member of surging Team alpha male, saw his second bid at Johnson’s 125-pound championship slip through his fingers. There’s not much doubt that he is the consensus number two fighter in the division yet he may never get another shot at “Mighty Mouse.”
Johnson is quickly looking like one of the more dominant champions in the UFC. He proved that flyweights do indeed have enough power to knock out top-level opposition. Check out the fight video highlights of Johnson’s massive win courtesy of Fox Sports:
