Demetrious Johnson Armbars Wilson Reis, Ties Anderson Silva’s UFC Title Defense Record

Anderson Silva , you have company. Demetrious Johnson on Saturday submitted Wilson Reis with a third-round armbar to retain the Ultimate Fighting Championship flyweight title in the UFC on Fox 24 headliner at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Reis (22-7, 6-3 UFC) conceded defeat 4:49 into Round 3 after having been thoroughly dominated by a transcendent champion. Johnson (26-2-1, 14-1-1 UFC) was flawless. He picked apart Reis from the orthodox and southpaw stances, dissecting the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt with leg and body kicks, straight right hands, knees to the body and blinding punching bursts. With the challenger ripe for the picking, Johnson made his move on the finish. He backed up a clean right hand with a takedown in the third round, settled in side control and smashed Reis with short elbows, one of which opened a cut. “Mighty Mouse” advanced to mount and snatched the armbar for the tapout. The win ties Johnson with Silva for the most consecutive UFC title defenses (10). The 30-year-old AMC Pankration cornerstone has won 12 straight fights.

UFC on Fox 24 Bonuses: Johnson, Whittaker, Elliott, Smolka Pocket $50K

Demetrious Johnson , Robert Whittaker , Tim Elliott and Louis Smolka are all $50,000 richer after their performances at UFC on Fox 24 in Kansas City, Mo., on Saturday night. “Mighty Mouse” garnered a “Performance of the Night” check for his dissection of Wilson Reis in the evening’s main event. The reigning flyweight king confounded his Brazilian foe with a multi-faceted arsenal on the feet before landing a takedown and securing the fight-ending armbar 4:49 into the third round. Whittaker earned a “Performance of the Night” bonus for his upset of Ronaldo Souza in a pivotal middleweight bout. A Whittaker right hand floored “Jacare” within the first 30 seconds of the second round, and the Brazilian was on wobbly legs for the rest of the stanza. From there, Whittaker rocked his man with a head kick, shoved him to the floor and finished the contest with punches on the ground at the 3:28 mark of round two. Finally, Elliott and Smolka received “Fight of the Night” honors for their preliminary bantamweight duel. In an entertaining grappling battle, Elliott landed multiple takedowns in each round, mounted Smolka twice and got the better of several frantic scrambles en route to winning a unanimous decision.

Robert Whittaker: UFC Middleweight Champ Michael Bisping Owes Me a Fight

If he wasn’t a contender before UFC on Fox 24 , Robert Whittaker definitely is now following his thrashing of Ronaldo Souza in Kansas City, Mo., on Saturday night. “The Reaper” won his sixth consecutive middleweight bout and seventh straight overall with a dominant performance against the heralded “Jacare,” as he stopped the Brazilian grappling ace with a head kick and follow-up ground strikes 3:28 into the second round of their bout. “I prepared for the fight to be that way. I’ve been training countless hours for this fight. We went through all the situations and scenarios that could possibly happen and we drilled them,” Whittker said. “This was a scenario that arose, and I executed a game plan.” Although the Whittaker was largely in control, he did have to survive one moment where the two-tie Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Championship gold medalist briefly attached himself to his back in the opening stanza. However, the Australian fighter was able to escape relatively quickly, and he spent the rest of the fight punishing “Jacare” on the feet.

Opinion: The Paradox of Perfection

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White was the first to take the dais after UFC on Fox 24 in Kansas City, Missouri. He announced the usual business -- gate numbers, bonus winners, compliments to the host city -- before telling the press about how he overheard Demetrious Johnson asking coach Matt Hume what he did wrong in his one-sided drubbing of Wilson Reis . White answered on behalf of Hume and really anyone else who witnessed the fight: “Nothing.” When asked about Robert Whittaker ’s win, he was just as effusive: “He fought a perfect fight.” As for Rose Namajunas : “[She] fought a flawless fight.” Perfect, perfect, perfect. It’s typical promoter hyperbole, but in a lot of ways, White wasn’t wrong. None of the winners in the top three fights had to overcome any real adversity. Namajunas utterly dismantled Michelle Waterson ; Whittaker completely stifled Ronaldo Souza ; and Johnson? He Mighty Mouse’d Reis, landing more significant strikes than his opponent even attempted before adding demoralization to dominance by submitting the jiu-jitsu ace.

Roufusport Prospect Stots Outpoints Emerson, Claims 135-Pound Gold at Victory FC 56

Raufeon Stots passed the most significant test of his career to date and earned himself some championship hardware in the process. The Roufusport prospect took a unanimous verdict (50-45, 50-45, 49-46) over seven-time UFC veteran Robert Emerson (18-12) in the Victory Fighting Championship 56 headliner at Baxter Arena in Omaha, Neb., on Friday night to win the promotion’s bantamweight crown. After the victory, “Supa” proclaimed himself ready to move on the sport’s next level. “I want to be the best in the world. I train as hard as I can to be the best in the world,” Stots (8-0) said. “I deserve to fight the best fighters in the world and I deserve to be in the UFC. I’m ready. I’m telling y’all now I’m coming.” Emerson was unable to pull the trigger against Stots, who blended his striking and wrestling well throughout the 25-minute affair. Stots repeatedly found the mark with clean left hands during exchanges, as Emerson struggled to solve his foe’s southpaw stance. Stots also smoothly transitioned to takedowns, grounding his foe in every frame.
