UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson not satisfied until entire division is cleaned out

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson is looking to not just defend his title against John Dodson, but to clean out the entire 125 pound division, cementing a legacy in the process.

"I'm the hunter and I'm chasing after those guys. I was looking at a UFC roster and I saw that there were 14 guys there (at flyweight). I got two down, I've got 11 to go. I'm not satisfied. I always want to be better and improve. We made history on September 22, 2012, and that one's in the books. Now it's time to build a legacy, keep hunting these guys down, and keep putting on great performances against the top athletes in the world. And I might never be satisfied, but we'll find out."

Demetrious Johnson may have won the inaugural UFC Flyweight Title a month ago (Sept. 22, 2012), when he defeated Joseph Benavidez in the co-main event of UFC 152, but as he tells UFC.com, he's far from finished. Johnson doesn't just want to go down in history as the first 125-pound champ, he wants to create a legacy in the division. His first step begins when he takes on number one contender and winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 14, John Dodson at a yet to be determined date and location. How do you like Johnson's odds of defending his title against "The Magician" and getting that legacy started off on the right path?
