Biography

He might be small in stature, but Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson stands tall among UFC champions.

Johnson is the UFC’s first and only flyweight titlist, having won the belt in September 2012 and defended it six times -- a stretch that includes three wins by submission and one by knockout.

In a career that began in 2007, Johnson is regarded as arguably the quickest and most technically skilled fighter in MMA, a big reason he’s ranked as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the UFC.

Mighty Mouse has scored victories over some of the division’s toughest challengers, including Joseph Benavidez (twice), John Dodson and John Moraga. His submission win over Kyoji Horiguchi of Japan at UFC 186 came with one second left in the five-round bout, marking the latest finish in UFC history.

Johnson’s fast hands and footwork helped him rise up the UFC ranks after a successful stint in World Extreme Cagefighting as a bantamweight. He joined the UFC after it absorbed WEC and promptly won bouts against Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto and Miguel Angel Torres in 2011.

A loss to Dominick Cruz later that year ended a four-fight win streak, but Johnson was then chosen to take part in a four-man tournament to crown the UFC’s first flyweight champ.

The 125-pound weight class clearly suited the 5-foot-3 Johnson much better than bantamweight. He showed it, too, although not without enduring some controversy. In his first match, he appeared to score a majority decision win over Ian McCall, but it was determined afterward that a scoring error had taken place and the result was a majority draw.

Johnson met McCall again and this time won by unanimous decision, setting up a final against Benavidez at UFC 152. Johnson won by split decision to claim the historic first-ever flyweight title, and if there was any dispute over his win, he dismissed it with a first-round KO of Benavidez in December 2013.

Mighty Mouse is undeniably the king of the flyweights.
