Demetrious Johnson was back to silencing critics in a UFC on Fox 9 rematch with Joseph Benavidez on Saturday.
Heading into his previous title defense against John Moraga, Johnson had seen seven straight fights go to the scorecards. That led many to question the flyweight champion's finishing ability, but he responded with a submission win over Moraga at UFC on Fox 8.
Still, Johnson's knockout power was being questioned prior to his appearance at UFC on Fox 9. "Mighty Mouse" answered those questions with a devastating knockout of Benavidez in the first round.
Johnson's next fight is unknown right now, but it's safe to say he's going to be looking to keep proving people wrong as he builds his legacy as 125-pound champion. Here are the fights that could be next for Johnson, Benavidez and the rest of the UFC on Fox 9 competitors.
