Demetrious Johnson: The Unstoppable Legacy of 'Mighty...

Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson was born on August 13 in 1986 and to this day, is a name etched in the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). With a rare blend of skill set, work ethic, and record-breaking accomplishments, Johnson's MMA legacy is of the legendary variety.

Early Career & World Extreme Cage fighting (WEC)

MMA was just a hobby when Johnson first took it up, before he made his pro debut in 2006.

He quickly made a name for himself and would secure numerous victories, one even by way of head kick knockout at an Alaska Fighting Championships event before being signed by the WEC.

While the loss was a learning experience for Johnson in his flyweight debut, he would go on have a successful career in the UFC, showcasing his potential in the division.

UFC Legacy

Bantamweight Tournament (2011-2012)

Following the merger of WEC with the UFC, Johnson moved to the UFC and went onto to become the inaugural UFC Flyweight Champion.

Although outright dismissiveness was a hallmark of his UFC career, Johnson has demonstrated some truly remarkable accomplishments.

That's just a few he holds 11 straight title defenses, a record in any UFC division, and the latest submission in UFC history.

Unbeaten records and accolades

The resume of Johnson is littered with accomplishments that only solidify his place among the MMA GOATs and solidifies his striking and grappling abilities as without equal in sport. Notable achievements include:

  • Fight of the Night: Three times
  • Performance of the Night: Four times
  • Submission of the Night: Once
  • Knockout of the Night: Once

Best MMA Fighter of All Time

Therefore, Johnson's impact goes beyond his numbers. He clearly left his mark on the sport and it is quite evident in the recognition provided by the legends in the MMA community.

ESPN, UFC commentator Joe Rogan and others have called Johnson one of the best mixed martial artists in the world.

Johnson is arguably an all-time great in the sport, and the respect for his ability and his contributions to MMA during such a tough stretch of 2020 only validates that assertion.

Overlooked Excellence

For all his success, Johnson is a fighter who many have written off as perhaps being undersized and outmatched in the current MMA landscape.

Some of this has to do with things like his size and where the flyweight division is sitting. But his excellence remained undeniable, with six finishes out of his ten title defenses confirming that he is among the very greatest they.

Legacy and Enduring Impact

That isn't the only lasting impact Johnson left on the sport of MMA, This is the legacy and inspiration of legends he leaves to those coming up in the fight game who one day hope to achieve what he achieved.

The records he shattered and the barriers he broke continue to reverberate through the world of MMA, as he goes down as one of the greatest of all time.

The House That Mighty Mouse Built

Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson is the epitome of Mixed Martial Arts, demonstrating the absolute best in skill, dedication, and long lasting influence on the sport.

His records, accomplishments, accolades, and winning the tag of one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time authenticate his glorious road traveled in the MMA world.

Johnson's legacy will continue to inspire generations of MMA fans while his brilliant work lives on.
