Demetrious Johnson Wins By Submission In Final Second Of Final Round

Kyoji Horiguchi tapped out at 4:59 of the final round to give Demetrious Johnson his sixth straight defense of the UFC flyweight title tonight at UFC 186. It’s the latest finish in UFC history.

It’s a genius move, too. Johnson manages to flip across Horiguchi upon hearing the 10-second warning, and at that point the only question was whether the Japanese fighter could bear the armbar pain for another second.

He couldn’t.
