Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Rankings

Last month, the world’s top heavyweights were on display. This
month, it was the other side of the scale in the spotlight.
Johnson maintained his reputation as the world’s top
125-pounder with a Jan. 26 unanimous decision over top contender
Dodson. Before an audience of millions on Fox, the flyweights
displayed all the speed and athleticism for which their division is
known, dueling for 25 minutes in a back-and-forth affair. Johnson
ultimately outlasted “The Ultimate Fighter” winner, but the close
nature of the fight and the lack of contenders in the UFC’s newest
weight class make a rematch seem almost inevitable -- not that
anyone is complaining.
