The UFC's World Flyweight Champion calls Pierce County home and trains on the Eastside. Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson defended his title in December, knocking out opponent Joseph Benavidez in under three minutes into the first round. Since then, he's been training even more, and not just as a fighter. Demetrious and his wife Destiny welcomed a baby boy last July, just one week before he successfully defended his title in Seattle.
Demetrious joined Margaret today to talk about his frowing family, as well as the important title defense bout he's currently preparing for, against Ali Bagautinov at UFC 174 this Saturday, June 14th in Vancouver, B.C. This match-up is one of the main event matches being shown live via pay-per-view.
