Demetrious Johnson Discusses Being The UFC Flyweight Champion

Demetrious Johnson might not be able to wear his UFC flyweight title with ease, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t enjoying carrying the belt around.

Johnson became the first-ever UFC flyweight champion this past weekend, defeating Joseph Benavidez via decision.

“It’s pretty heavy,” said Johnson, of the UFC title, on UFC Tonight recently. “I like wearing it around my shoulder better. I have a small waist and it keeps falling off.”

Johnson will likely find out who his first title defense will come against next month when Jussier Formiga faces John Dodson. “Mighty Mouse” said he will be “watching that fight very closely.”
