With yet another near-flawless performance, Demetrious Johnson etched his name into the UFC history books Saturday night at UFC on FOX 24.
Johnson, the reigning flyweight champion, systematically picked Wilson Reis apart before finishing him in the third round of their main event fight from Kansas City. The win was the 10th consecutive title defense for Johnson, tying the all-time UFC record with Anderson Silva.
“Mighty Mouse” is still the only fighter to wear the UFC flyweight belt and has almost completely cleaned out his division after the win over Reis. The submission loss was the first for Reis in his career.
Rose Namajunas earned a key win by finishing Michelle Waterson via submission in the co-main event, while Robert Whittaker stunned top middleweight contender Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
