Johnson and Cejudo met back in April 2016. “Mighty Mouse” steamrolled his opponent, earning a TKO win in under three minutes. Since that time, Cejudo has made significant improvements to his standup game.
In his last bout, Johnson broke the record for most successful consecutive UFC title defenses. He retained his flyweight title in style, doing a suplex into an armbar to finish Ray Borg. It’s the 12th submission victory in Johnson’s career.
Meanwhile, Cejudo has gone 2-1 in his last three bouts. His split decision loss to Joseph Benavidez was controversial. Despite having a point deducted, many felt he should’ve won the bout.
