Johnson seems to have a stranglehold on the flyweight division.
Benavidez was viewed as one of his toughest contenders, and Mighty Mouse took care of him in around two minutes. While Bagautinov has been a promising addition to the 125-pound class, he's not a bigger threat to Johnson.
The Russian arguably has stronger wrestling than Benavidez, but even that is debatable, and he's not better in any other area. While it is about stylistic matchups, Bagautinov's wrestling still doesn't appear to be at a higher level than the champion's.
Mighty Mouse can win this fight with his speed should it stay standing, or he could opt to avoid Bagautinov's power by winning what would be a slightly more competitive wrestling match. Either way, UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer will be screaming "and still" Saturday.
Johnson defeats Bagautinov by unanimous decision.
