"Ali is tough," said Johnson post-fight. "I just wanted to keep pushing. I'm the king and I'm going to stay that way as long as I can."
Johnson used a clinch throughout the fight, landing countless knees during the 25 minute contest. By the end of the fifth round, Johnson didn't appear to have a scratch unlike Bagautinov who was riddled with red marks from repeated blows.
After a failed attempt to win the bantamweight title, Johnson cut weight to join the new UFC flyweight division. He has six wins as a flyweight and four title defenses.
Bagautinov had won 11 in a row before meeting Johnson. He's now 13-3 and 3-1 under the UFC banner.
The flyweight championship headlined UFC 174. The fight also marked the first time the belt was challenged on a PPV card. For play-by-play of UFC 174, please click here.
