UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson has been reportedly targeting a fight for the highly anticipated pay-per-view of UFC 227 for some time now. Now “Mighty Mouse” is set to compete on the exciting card.
Demetrious Johnson is riding a record setting submission victory over Ray Borg, in which the reigning champion earned the most consecutive title defenses within the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). As made official during the recent UFC 225 live broadcast, “Mighty Mouse” is now set to face off against Henry Cejudo in a title fight rematch for UFC 227.
The two mixed martial artists first faced off back at UFC 197, in which Johnson earned a first round TKO victory over his opponent. Now Cejudo and Johnson will throw down on Aug. 4 from within the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
