UFC Bantamweight Demetrious Johnson

Are you pumped to watch the UFC’s four-man flyweight tournament tonight, but only know who Demetrious Johnson (Pictured) and Joseph Benavidez are? As the old adage goes, “Better late than never,” as the organization has just released a lengthy preview video featuring all four fighters.

Ian McCall and Yasuhiro Urushitani are the tourney’s other contestants. Johnson and Benavidez are both dropping down from the UFC’s bantamweight division, while McCall and Urushitani will be making their big league debuts.

FYI – McCall is listed as the planet’s top 125-pounder on many MMA polls, but Benavidez is the early favorite to be the first to don UFC flyweight gold.

Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia hosts the Octagon’s return to The Land Down Under.

FX broadcasts the event’s main card live tonight at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
