UFC 215: Defending titles nothing new to Demetrious Johnson
Sep. 6, 2017
By Andrew Davis, ESPN Stats & Information
Johnson’s win streak in the UFC is up to 12, tied with former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre for third most in UFC history. Johnson has held the UFC flyweight title since Sept. 22, 2012, the longest reigning current champion in the UFC.
Perhaps most important of all, Johnson is seeking to tie the career record for most wins in UFC title fights (12, Georges St-Pierre). He'll likely accomplish it by landing a takedown that leads to a submission.
