UFC Demetrious Johnson

Reigning UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (pictured) did exactly what 20-1 odds-on favorites are supposed to do, completely overwhelm your opponent and finish them in emphatic fashion.

Chris Cariaso may have been surprised by the opportunity to fight for the title, but the outcome was expected by everyone not named Cariaso.

Johnson put an end to things with a slick kimura submission in the second round of their scrap. The official time in the stoppage came at 2:29.

The win marked Johnson’s fifth straight title defense.

UFC 178 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
