UFC 174 in Tweets: Pros react to Demetrious Johnson's masterful title defense, Rory MacDonald vs. Tyron Woodley, more

In what quickly became another blur of footwork, endurance, pinpoint accuracy and magisterial body control, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson dismantled Ali Bagautinov beyond any shadow of a doubt on Saturday night, easily defending his 125-pound strap for the fourth consecutive time in the main event of UFC 174.

With his latest conquest, Johnson's continued dominance over the rest of his diminutive brethren have effectively rendered the flyweight cupboard bare as can be, with the entirety of the top-five sporting at least one, if not two losses to the man they call "Mighty Mouse." It's a curious situation for UFC matchmakers to be in, trying to figure out how to continue developing interest in a brand-new division that already appears to be all but cleaned out. But alas, those are questions for later days. Saturday night was all about Johnson, and the for most the part, the pros were in full-on celebration mode for the mastery of the UFC's Lilliputian champ.
