There was no mouse trap set at UFC 197. Instead, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson kept his belt after finishing Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler Henry Cejudo via first-round technical knockout last night (Sat., April 23, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Despite landing a beautiful takedown early into the first round, Cejudo had little to no offense for Johnson. The Flyweight champion did what he does best, demonstrating blistering speed, sensational timing, and unparalleled defense en route to ending Cejudo with a brutal onslaught of knees and punches in the opening round.
The victory yet again solidifies Johnson as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. With little to no worthy title contenders left in the 125-pound division, Johnson may want to begin thinking about moving back up to 135 pounds.
