UFC’s Demetrious Johnson talks new weight-cutting policy and his 9th title defense

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson needs to successfully defend his belt two more times to tie Anderson Silva’s record for most title defenses in the UFC.

Up next for “Mighty Mouse” is Wilson Reis at UFC 201 in Atlanta, Ga. Their showdown is expected to serve as the co-main event.

Johnson successfully defended his belt an eighth time when he finished Henry Cejudo with strikes at UFC 197 in Las Vegas.

In addition, Johnson reacts to the UFC’s new weight cutting guidelines for fighters.
