Demetrious ‘Mighthy Mouse’ Johnson is 20-2-1 on his career and has defended the title four times and looking forward to the fifth.

At the end of the day, whether the belt’s here or it’s gone, the same thing happens. I go into camp, I train my butt off, I do my media, I show up to the fight, and I’m gonna get in the Octagon and we’re gonna fight. Either my hand’s gonna get raised or it’s not, whether the belt’s there or not. So it’s not a burden on me,” Johnson said.
