Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale full poster pic for 'Johnson vs. Benavidez 2' on Nov. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada

Demetrious Johnson took the first bout by Split Decision to capture the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Flyweight title. Will Joseph Benavidez be able to get his revenge on November 30th?

The little guys do battle at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV on Nov. 30, 2013.

Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez meet for a second time in the main event of the Ultimate Fighter Finale. The two flyweight standouts were part of the inaugural tournament to crown the first division champion in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) history.

Johnson got the edge from the judges with a split decision victory and ever since has run roughshod over everyone that the UFC has placed in front of him. Benavidez truly is the only fighter that has given Johnson a run for his money since the creation of the weight class.

Since their first meeting at UFC 152 in 2012, both have stood out as the best the weight class has to offer. Johnson has been able to outwork opponents with an insane amount of punches while Benavidez has recorded back-to-back knockouts in his last outings.

The Ultimate Fighter "Team Rousey vs. Team Tate" has been a success in showcasing some of the best female talent in the world who are vying for a six-figure contract with the UFC and the respect of the detractors that don't believe women have a place in mixed martial arts (MMA).

The Ultimate Fighter Finale airs live on Fox Sports 1.
