Flyweight: Demetrious Johnson

This was undoubtedly the easiest prediction to make.

Flyweight king Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, the only man in UFC history to sport 125-gold, has held the title since 2012, defending it an incredible nine times since.
Johnson most recently scored a decision victory over The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 24 winner Tim Elliot, but a minor knee injury is expected to keep him on the sidelines until the spring.

When he returns, a trilogy bout with rightful No. 1-contender Joseph Benavidez may be on tap, but Johnson has beaten Benavidez twice already. “Mighty Mouse” has also already beaten six of the division’s top eight contenders.

I simply feel as if Johnson is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the sport and I don’t see another flyweight beating him anytime soon.
