Have you considered it's because he doesn't hit hard? Or utilize any of the technique markers for generating power? He's had one ko in 4 years. That was a head kick against a no name before he ever fought in the WEC. In the 9 fights MM has had since he joined the WEC/UFC he has only finished 1. A submission against a completely gassed Damacio Page.

He literally only did damage by an accumulation of pitter patter shots. And not the Diaz kind of accumulation either that can actually stop a fight. Today Benavidez is probably a little sore and a little bruised - he deserves much worse for winging shots all night - but hardly hurting and with the number of shots Johnson landed on him that is pathetic.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

He landed a lot of good solid shots to the body and legs. Benavidez was definitely feeling like shit the next day.

If you see this as fight of the year you have to be joking, would fight fans have been booing if this was even a contestant at fight of the year.

When you break it down and compare to other title fights these fighters don't even come close to the level of skill displayed by other champions and contenders, there was nothing great to speak of in that fight, if so please tell me what moment stood out so much that its making people rank it so highly, was there any great moves that left you in ore? No, was there a great KO or submission? No, was we even close to a great moment? NO..

If you think that Johnson is more skilled than other champions like Anderson Silva, GSP, Jones, Dos Santos, Aldo, Henderson or even Cruse then you are kidding yourself.

I've been on other forums and am horrified by the whole "I didn't pay to see two midgets fighting!"...I'm gonna enjoy the FlW division once it fleshes out, that match had me buzzin'!

Careful, you might lose some points for voicing an opinion which is shared by at least half of the MMA community.

Hate to say it, Liza, but in all likelihood the flyweight division is going to fold before it fleshes out. Too few fighters. The UFC has 5, I believe, on the payroll. MM has already beat two of the other 4. That's not a division.

The problem is so few men are this size and athletically gifted that the talent pool will always be smaller than the more common weight ranges. Combine that with most casual fans distaste of the lighter weight classes and it doesn't spell out a bright future.

I can see them sticking with it what ever tbh, it wont headline many ppvs though....i can see the title fights being regulated to free cards only and the rest being prelims - only reason to can it altogether would be fighter pay....if they feel they would be making more fighting at bantamweight that is where they will go if possible.

I don't have a problem with differing opinions sweety, I'm just smart enough not to neg rep someone (constantly in some cases, cough) for having a different viewpoint of the sport we all love.
