Demetrious Johnson defeated Kyoji Horiguchi via submission (armbar) – Round 5, 4:59 this past Saturday at UFC 186.
Since Johnson has wiped out the division, who’s next is a big question. The most obvious choice is John Dodson, which Johnson beat in his first title defense back in 2013 by unanimous decision.
“I never shy away from any rematch or a fight with anybody in the flyweight division,” Johnson said at the post-fight presser. “I’m just not a person who goes out there and seeks it. A champion doesn’t seek challenges, challenges find me. That’s where we’re at. If he gets past Zach Makovsky then we can get him up again.”
