With a win on Saturday night, the UFC's Pound-For-Pound King can tie Anderson Silva's record of 10 title defenses. Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson will face off Saturday against Wilson Reis, and look to defend his Flyweight Belt for a 10th time. Johnson has held the 125-pound strap for the entirety of the divisions existence, and has not lost since he fought Dominick Cruz for the 135-pound belt in 2011.
Mighty Mouse is hands down the best P4P fighter on earth right now, especially with Jon Jones being suspended and not around over the last two years, Johnson has certified himself as the P4P King. He is truly the most well-rounded fighter I have ever seen compete in the UFC, with the ability to finish opponents with strikes or in the clinch, along with incredible wrestling and jiu-jitsu skills he can submit opponents with ease, not to mention that he is no stranger to fighting in the 4th and 5th rounds, so beating him in a decision is virtually impossible as well. He has never been finished, by strikes or submission, and at this point, it seems that beating him in decision is almost harder than finishing him.
Since the UFC created the Flyweight Division in 2012, there has been only one Champion, Demetrious Johnson. He has defended his belt 9 straight times, winning in every way possible, and with another win on Saturday he would tie Anderson Silva's All-Time record of 10 straight title defenses. Mighty Mouse says however, that tying the record, "is only the beginning".
So far, we have not seen anyone who can dethrone the great Mighty Mouse, and I doubt Wilson Reis will be the one come Saturday. I fully expect the P4P King's reign to continue this weekend, and his sights will then be set on grabbing that spot at the top of the All-Time defense record.
After he breaks Silva's record, and maybe adds a few wins to bolster that record, he does have intentions of moving up to the Bantamweight division and challenging Cody Garbrandt, or whoever is the champ at the time.
I'm real excited for Mighty Mouse this Saturday, because you won't find a more respectful and humble champion, and he backs down from no challenges.
