Demetrious Johnson will face Henry Cejudo at UFC 197 tonight, and if he wins, he will have defended the flyweight title eight times….If you’re thinking that sounds really, really impressive you’re absolutely right. The only men who have defended the belt eight times or more are Jon Jones, Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva.
In advance of the bout, the UFC posted the video below, which features Joe Rogan breaking down the fight. Johnson is the favorite to win, but clearly Cejudo’s been doing something right since ending his decorated wrestling career.
UFC 197 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
