UFC on Fox 8 Results: Matches to Make for the Entire Fight Card
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Demetrious Johnson picked up his second flyweight title defense at UFC on Fox 8, where he submitted John Moraga in the fifth and final round. With wins over the four most highly ranked 125-pound contenders, "Mighty Mouse" is now quietly becoming one of the more dominant UFC champions. 

At this point, there is no flyweight contender who stands out as most deserving of a shot at Johnson. With that in mind, Johnson teased a return to bantamweight at the UFC on Fox 8 post-fight press conference.

"(A superfight) is just something to throw out there," he said. "I'm still focused on my weight division. I know there's up-and-coming fighters who are trying to come up and take what's mine, and I'll be there to defend it for the fans."

It might be too early to talk superfights for Johnson, who was dominated by bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz in his last appearance at 135 pounds. However, a few more title defenses at flyweight could make hs return to bantamweight a stronger possibility.

For now, here is what should really be next for Johnson and the rest of the UFC on Fox 8 competitors.
