MONTREAL – This was a fight that could have gone any way. And people were not sure as both the fighters came with impeccable credentials and were thirsty for another win of their great carriers.

Nonetheless one man was always thought to be a step above his challenger. Demetrious Johnson who had won the title five times before today’s tough challenge is someone who never gives up even in the worst f circumstances. And this never say die attitude came to help him once again today when he submitted a very tough contender in the form of Kyoji Horiguchi with just a second remaining.

This was a great show by both the fighters who gave their best throughout the fight in the UFC flyweight title fight. There is no denying the fact that with this win, Johnson (22-2-1 MMA, 10-1-1 UFC) has set a record for the latest submission in UFC history and the latest finish in any UFC title bout when he forced Horiguchi (15-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) to tap at the 4:59 mark of the fifth round.MMA: UFC 186-Johnson vs Horiguchi

After the tiresome fight was over, a beaming and obviously elated Johnson said, “It’s very satisfying…I wish I would have done it a lot sooner. The fight would have been over quicker, but it puts an exclamation point where I’m dominating the fight and I go ahead and finish it.”

There is no denying the fact that it was a showstopper. UFC fans actually love such fights where both the fighters give their best and where the fight doesn’t end in the first or second round itself. The flyweight title bout was the main event of today’s UFC 186 event at Bell Centre in Montreal. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
