Profile: Since losing to bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz in October, 2011, Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson (22-2-1) has taken over the UFC’s flyweight division with relative ease. He won the UFC’s four-man flyweight tournament with wins over Ian McCall and Joseph Benavidez to become the first-ever 125lb champ, then he defeated John Dodson via decision in his first title defence. He then followed that up with a submission win over John Moraga to once again defend the belt, and then at UFC on FOX 9 he knocked out Benavidez in their rematch to cement his place as the No. 1 flyweight fighter on the entire planet. He then followed that up with a decision win over Ali Bagautinov at UFC 174 and a submission win over Chris Cariaso at UFC 177 to continue moving up the P4P ranks. But perhaps his best win to date was his submission win over Kyoji Horiguchi at UFC 186, when he set the record for the latest stoppage in UFC history with one second remaining in round five. Johnson is an amazing fighter and at UFC 191 gets to prove his P4P rank again in a rematch against Dodson.

Last fight: Submission of Kyoji Horiguchi at UFC 186
