Demetrious Johnson-Wilson Reis Flyweight Title Fight Set For UFC 201


A second title fight has been added to UFC 201, as Demetrious Johnson defends his belt against Wilson Reis.

The bout was first reported on “UFC Tonight” Wednesday evening.

Johnson (24-2-1) has defended the belt eight times previously, including a recent first round finish vs. Henry Cejudo. “Mighty Mouse” also holds wins over John Dodson, Kyoji Horiguchi and Joseph Benavidez during his run.

Reis (20-6) is coming off a decision victory over Dustin Ortiz, but was bested by Jussier Formiga prior to that. He is 3-1 over his last four and 8-2 over his last 10 fights.

UFC 201 takes place July 30 from the Philips Arena in Atlanta. Tyron Woodley challenges Robbie Lawler for the welterweight title in the main event.
