Last night, at UFC on FOX 9, Demetrious Johnson defended his title in spectacular fashion by knocking out Joseph Benavidez in the very first round. A powerful right hook from Demetrious sent Benavidez crumbling to the mat unconscious. The win makes it two finishes in a row for the Flyweight champion on Fox. The UFC most definitely has a budding star on it’s hands.

In the co-main event of the evening, Urijah Faber staked his claim as the #1 contender for the Bantamweight title. After rocking Michael McDonald with a right hook, Faber latched on his patented guillotine and forced McDonald to tap out in the second round. The win makes it four in a row for Faber. He looked incredible in dispatching of the young lion that is Michael McDonald. Faber will most definitely get another crack at UFC gold, as per Dana White.

Overall, it was another solid night of fights for the UFC, and a great way to close out 2013 on Fox. Dana White shared his thoughts on Demetrious and Urijah’s performances, the event as a whole, Cody McKenzie’s shorts, GSP’s indefinite leave of absence, Nick Diaz turning down the Carlos Condit fight, and much more. You can watch his post fight media scrum (courtesy of MMAFighting), and his post fight interview with Ariel Helwani below.
