UFC on FOX 9: Johnson vs. Benavidez II is in the books and it was Demetrious Johnson who defended his Flyweight Title by knocking Joseph Benavidez clean out half way through the first round. For a long time Johnson took heat for not finishing his opponents, but with his KO of the night performance over Benavidez and his submission win over John Moraga, detractors will have a much more difficult time getting away with that. UFC Fighters around the world watched ‘Mighty Mouse’s’ win and many of them reacted on twitter to the main event.
