Demetrious Johnson is one name that doesn't need any introduction. He is ten times Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Flyweight division's dominating defending champion.
Ten defenses and it looks like UFC was dead sure that he will defend the titles and that may be why they never handed him a new and shinier belt every time he dominated his opponents but this Saturday he took the bad boy home.
Saturday, 15th April was also not an exception as well. Johnson submitted the number one contender Wilson Reis.
UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson
President Dana White said that he is an all time Defending Champion and was surprised on hearing the media's question on Johnson not having a shinier belt in UFC after fight press conference. Later Dana Promised that he will get Johnson eight more belts and cleared that, it is not necessary that a fighter gets a new belt every time he defends his title, but he will try his best to get Demetrious Johnson with eight more belts.
Here is what Demetrious Johnson said, he said I am taking this (Explicit) Home
Dana White said:
I’m going to get him his belts. He’s definitely keeping the belt from tonight, and I guess I’ve got some catching up to do. Listen, that’s not the way it works. People don’t win belts every time. You defend your title, and you keep your belt. If we’re handing out belts every single defense here – that’s a lot of money. It would be a lot of money to get him eight more belts. To be honest with you, we don’t even have eight more belts. We order them as we do events. It’s going to be a little bit of back up on his belts, but we’ll get it done.
Johnson now, side by side with another UFC fighter Anderson the Spider Silva, with 10 wins and he is only a fight away to put out Anderson's record away.

He in the interview added that he has never missed weights, never been in drugs and never disrespected anyone, he is basically a video game guy and a Diaper changing dad now so if people talk about big money fights, he will surely fight Conor McGregor.
