As we all know, Demetrius “The Mighty Mouse” Johnson successfully defended his belt against John Dodson last Sunday.
Johnson is tied with Jose Aldo with 7 consecutive title defenses. I believe next in line should be the winner between Henry Cejudo and Jussier Formiga.
Demetrius Johnson the no. 3 “Pound per Pound” champion has fought and won against the high ranking fighters in the flyweight division.
The number 1 and 2 contenders John Dodson and Joseph Benavidez, who happens to be his teammates tried to snatch the belt away but Johnson is simply too much for them.
Now, out of curiosity I was wondering? Flyweight is a natural division for most of our local fighters or Asians fighters in general.
What do you think would be the result if Demetrius Johnson fights one our home grown flyweight fighters?
Obviously, this is just a fantasy match up but who knows? This fantasy fight could become reality in the near future. I am sure it is bound to happen in the near future.
If I’m going to have to pick a home grown fighter, maybe I would pick someone from the longest running MMA promotion in Asia; Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC).
At the present time, the first choice would be the current Flyweight champ Hideo Morikawa who’s on a 4th winning streak and recently claimed the URCC Flyweight belt last July at Fontana Convention hall in Pampanga.
The URCC veteran with a record of 8-3 is considered as “home grown fighter” even though he is Japanese national.
Hideo Morikawa is known for being durable and tough, it would be really exciting see him fight against the world flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, this may not happen in real life but this hypothetical match up looks interesting!
