Demetrious Johnson is quietly turning into one of the most dominant champions in UFC history.
Beating Ali Bagautinov on Saturday gave "Mighty Mouse" a fourth straight title defense, which matches the reigns of legends Chuck Liddell, Pat Miletich and Frank Shamrock. Only Jon Jones and Jose Aldo have longer current reigns than Johnson.
Accordingly, the 125-pound titleholder is becoming recognized as one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in MMA. Was a decision win over Bagautinov enough for him to surpass heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez for the No. 3 position among elite pound-for-pound UFC competitors?
With UFC 174 in the books and multiple events coming up on June 28, here are the latest official UFC rankings via UFC.com, which were voted on by various members of the MMA media.
