UFC News: Video Of Johnson's KO, Dana On If GSP Will Return, Nick Diaz Turns Down Big Fight

- UFC Featherweight Champion Demetrious Johnson needed just a little over two minutes to knock out Joseph Benavidez at last night's UFC on FOX 9 event and defend his title for the third time.

"I was trying to get my timing on him, my footwork on him," Johnson said on FOX Sports Live. "I threw from right field and it landed and I'm happy to get the finish."

You can watch highlights from the fight and the knock out in the video above.

- UFC President Dana White noted to FOX Sports Live last night that he was trying to put together a Carlos Condit vs. Nick Diaz rematch, however Diaz turned it down. Diaz lost a close decision to Condit at UFC 143 in February of 2012 for the Interim UFC Welterweight Championship.

"He's [Diaz] not thinking about a fighting right now," White said. "Maybe he'll come back in May. I've got to figure out what to do with Condit now."

- White also addressed Georges St-Pierre taking a hiatus and vacating the UFC Welterweight Championship last week.

"He [GSP] didn't walk away," White said. "He's going to come back. He has some things he has to handle. He did the classy thing and vacate the title. He did the right thing. He's going to be gone a while. Somebody will win that belt and then he'll be back."
