Former UFC flyweight champion and consensus Greatest Fighter of All Time, Demetrious Johnson found a unique way to spend his time during the pandemic.
Johnson made his UFC debut in 2011. He won the inaugural flyweight title in the following year. This was just the beginning of his great legacy. “Mighty Mouse” went on to destroy everybody in his tracks. At UFC 216, he pulled off an incredible flying armbar on Ray Borg and broke Anderson Silva’s record for most title defenses.
Unfortunately for Johnson, he lost his next bout via a split decision to Henry Cejudo. Following his defeat, he took his skills to One Fighting Championship, where he won his first match in the second round via a guillotine choke. His next two victories came via unanimous decisions. As of now, Johnson has no fight scheduled for him.
Training during the pandemic can be tough. However, Johnson found the perfect grappling partner for his workout. In a recent video on Instagram, the American fighter was seen practicing various submissions on his wife, Destiny Johnson.
The video took a funny turn when Johnson’s daughter Tanyth dropped a phone on Destiny’s face.
Johnson’s love for his family needs no explanation. In the past, he has said that his wife helped him get through adversity. Similarly, “Mighty Wife” has also admired her husband’s work ethic and dedication. She claims that Johnson is best at everything.
“100 percent, his work ethic is unmatchable. I don’t know anybody that can work as hard as he does and smart as he does,” Destiny Johnson said in March 2020.
