UFC on Fox 9: Johnson vs Benavidez II Live Odds

UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Benavidez 2 (also known as UFC on Fox 9) was a mixed martial arts event held on December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.

A UFC Lightweight title bout between the current champion Anthony Pettis and top contender TJ Grant was targeted for this event. However, Grant revealed in mid-September that he has yet to be medically cleared after suffering a concussion in training and would not be eligible to compete on December 14 and opted to decline the bout.

Co-featured on the card was a bout between top bantamweight contenders Urijah Faber and Michael McDonald.

The night featured some great action from the best lighterweight fighters on the roster. While there were some weird moments such as Cody McKenzie fighting in basketball shorts, there were also some spectacular finishes, including one from Johnson to cap off the night.

Johnson (19-2-1 MMA, 7-1-1 UFC) won for the fifth straight time and won by knockout for the first time since February 2010. Benavidez (19-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC) had a three-fight winning streak snapped.

“Tonight was a great moment for my career, but in reality it’s just another fight,” Johnson said. ”My goal is to keep evolving and displaying my skill set to fans and having them enjoy my fights.”

Demetrious Johnson vs Joseph Benavidez:

Round 1: The champion Johnson jabs and changes levels at the fight begins, perhaps trying to bait Benavidez into engaging. The pair exchange leg kicks, with the challenger landing the harsher of the two. Johnson comes back with a short right hand over the top then switches to southpaw. Johnson continues circling and when he does, Benavidez looks to tag him with head kicks. Johnson comes forward, backing Benavidez up to the cage.

Benavidez raises his leg and feints a teep. Johnson, however, explodes through the attempt and rips him with a right hook. Benavidez goes down on his seat and “Mighty Mouse” follows up with two ferocious coffin nails, leaving Benavidez's mouth bloody and his mind far from the Octagon in Sacramento. Incredibly first-round knockout by Demetrious Johnson.
