Demetrious Johnson vs. Joseph Benavidez

Round 1:
Flyweight title on the line. Johnson beat Benavidez via split decision in September 2012. Referee "Big" John McCarthy oversees the action. They touch 'em up. Here we go. Both men trade low kicks early. Johnson latches onto a single and hunts for a takedown, but can't get it. Benavidez nearly cracks Johnson with a high kick. Johnson answers with a high kick of his own. Johnson bouncing in and out of the pocket. Benavidez wades inside with a flurry. Johnson steps into a huge looping right and utterly destroys Benavidez! Johnson swarms with hammerfists. He's out cold. Incredible finish. Wow.

UFC on FOX 9 results: Demetrious Johnson def. Joseph Benavidez via KO (punches) at 2:08 of round 1.

Another fantastic finish, great belt defense by the champion! Mighty Mouse get KOTN for sure!

That's all folks. Discuss!
