Demetrious Johnson vs. Joseph Benavidez fight results UFC on Fox 9, Round 1

The main event of tonight's (Sat., Dec. 14, 2013) UFC on Fox 9: "Johnson vs. Benavidez" event from the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California, featured Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson welcoming yet another challenge from Joseph Benavidez, whom he vanquished back at UFC 152 last year.

Benavidez opened the first round with a low kick. Johnson bounced back out rather quick and it wasn't long until he was shooting for a takedown. It didn't happen.

The two went back and forth for a short time before BOOM, Johnson landed a hard shot that put Benavidez flat on his back. A flurry of follow up punches led to a stoppage.

No need for the ref, though. "Joe-B" was out cold.

Johnson retains his bantamweight title via knockout.
