Demetrious Johnson and Miguel Torres put on a very entertaining and close fight in the Bantamweight division. In the end, it was "Mighty Mouse" Johnson taking him the unanimous decision win and providing fans with the requisite ammunition for more complaints about judging.
What was the high spot of this fight?
This was an all around entertaining fight with no single moment really sticking out. Lots of great scrambles on the ground, particularly in round 2, plus a heated final minute of action are probably the best moments, but again, it's hard to single anything out.
Where do these guys go from here?
The Bantamweight division is still a work in progress as the UFC sorts it all out, so it's a bit tough to say. I don't think Johnson is next in line for a shot after this win, but he's getting close. I see him meeting the winner of the UFC 132 Brian Bowles vs. Takeya Mizugaki fight, with the winner there emerging as a possible #1 contender.
Torres is in a rough spot, as the former Bantamweight champion has now lost 3 of his last 5. He remains one of the division's few name fighters, but needs to get some impressive wins. I'd say he draws Scott Jorgensen next, provided Jorgensen gets by Ken Stone next weekend.
Watch it now, later, or never?
Great action, fast paced fight, controversial finish, with a new name emerging at Bantamweight? Watch it now.
