5 years ago today,
Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson def. Joseph Benavidez, to become the first ever UFC Flyweight Champion.
He has now been Champion for 1,827 days. Women did not compete in the UFC when he won the title. Conor McGregor was still on welfare when he won the title. Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, and Georges St-Pierre were all UFC Champions when he won the title. In a sport that changes all the time, there is one thing that has remained the same: Demetrious Johnson is the UFC Flyweight Champion.
Mighty Mouse gets better every time we see him fight. As it stands, he is leaps & bounds above the rest of his division.
Next month, Mighty Mouse is set to break Anderson Silva’s record for the most consecutive title defenses in UFC history. #repost @mmahistorytoday #andstill #recordbreaker
