UFC 152 video: Demetrious Johnson out to finish Joseph Benavidez and make history

Joseph Benavidez may be looking to hurt Demetrious Johnson with every punch but "Mighty Mouse" is looking at the forest, not the trees. He knows he has the chance to make history in the co-main event at UFC 152: "Jones vs. Belfort" on Sat., Sept. 22, 2012, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and he plans to get there by finishing "Joe-B Wan."

"My number one goal is to go out there and finish somebody. If I go in there and kick somebody in the head and they fall down and I'm like, 'Woo, yeah, give me that strap' and walk away, I'm happy with that. He's a great fighter, yeah, he's a killer. He goes out there and he tries to finish opponents. He's very methodical with the way he fights. I know he's going to bring it and he knows I'm going to bring it too. The speed aspect, absolutely I'm the fastest guy that he's ever fought. I'm going to test everything about him: his heart, his chin, his cardio; how bad does he want it? I'll find out. What's at stake for me in this fight is making history being the first flyweight champion in the world. I just can't wait to go out there and fight to find out who's number one."

To the victor go the spoils and in this case, that means having their name etched in the record books forever known as the very first UFC flyweight champion in MMA history.

So who takes it?
