Demetrious Johnson vs. Joseph Benavidez 2 full fight video

UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson (23-2-1) faced Joseph Benavidez (24-4) in a rematch at UFC on Fox 9, and the result was definitive.

After a close-fought, five-round contest between the two standout 125-pound fighters at UFC 152, many expected a similar outcome for the second go in December 2013.

Johnson put an end to that midway through the first round.

Watch the full fight above to see how Johnson halted the bout.

Johnson will face Olympic gold medalist and undefeated mixed martial artist Henry Cejudo in the co-main event at April 23's UFC 197 event in Las Vegas. That card is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champ Daniel Cormier and challenger Jon Jones.
