"I felt good. Last time my diet was not that good. I cut out carbs totally in my diet and it really affected me. I heard Joseph say I looked better this time. I kept my weight on me. This time I really maintained my nutrients. I am ready for it. Joe baby, I love you, you're sexy. But, I can't wait to hit you in the face. And I know me and you, and we are going to have fun doing it. I have to come out looking just as sexy as he is. He is known for his butt and thighs and I have to come out looking good too."

-- Demetrious Johnson tells the UFC Post-fight Show on FUEL TV that he knows Joseph Benavidez is sexy but he can't wait to punch him in his face anyway. That's because the two are now scheduled to meet in the flyweight tournament finals to determine the first ever 125-pound champion in UFC history thanks to Johnson defeating Ian McCall via unanimous decision in the main event of last night's (Fri., June 8, 2012) UFC on FX 3 event at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. This time around there was no controversy "Mighty Mouse" and Benavidez can handle their business later this year without an asterisk hanging over their heads. What do you think, Maniacs, who takes it when they step inside the cage? Perhaps more importantly, who wins the sexiness battle?
