Flyweight Champ Demetrious Johnson Retains Title at UFC 186
MONTREAL (AP) — Demetrious Johnson retained his UFC flyweight champion title fashion Saturday night, controlling Kyoji Horiguchi for nearly the entire five-round bout before scoring the latest submission win in UFC history — tapping out his opponent with a second left.
Johnson (22-2-1) simply took over in the second round, showing the wide range of skills that have earned him recognition as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters. Constant pressure from the champ left Horiguchi (15-2) struggling to find any opportunity to attack.
Johnson has six consecutive defenses of his UFC flyweight title.
In the co-main event, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (36-11) earned his first UFC win since 2011, scoring a unanimous decision over Brazilian slugger Fabio Maldonado (22-8).
