By the Numbers: UFC 191

By Tristen Critchfield Sep 5, 2015

Demetrious Johnson left no doubt this time around.

After John Dodson put a scare into the flyweight champion during their first meeting more than two years ago, “Mighty Mouse” thwarted his foe at every turn during their rematch at UFC 191 on Saturday night. The end result was a clear-cut unanimous decision victory for “Mighty Mouse,” who left the five-round headlining bout virtually unscathed.

As one of the sport’s pound-for-pound best fighters, Johnson continues to pile up an impressive array of figures to accompany his title reign. Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC 191, with statistics courtesy of
