UFC 216: Twitter Reacts To Demetrious Johnson Record-Breaking Performance

Demetrious Johnson did it. He finally did it. 

The one they call "Mighty Mouse" is the only champion the UFC's flyweight division has ever known, and Saturday night at UFC 216 in Las Vegas, Johnson accomplished something no fighter has ever done inside the UFC Octagon: He defended his title for the 11th consecutive time against Ray Borg, breaking the previous record of 10 straight title defenses, held by himself and former middleweight ruler Anderson Silva. 

The win came via fifth-round submission after four dominant rounds, showcasing the fact that Johnson is not content to just win -- he wants to decimate his foes. And that's exactly what he's done. 

Johnson's title reign now stretches 842 days and nine different opponents. He finished seven of his 11 foes during his run, and he was never really close to losing at any time. He is dominance personified, and Twitter reacted appropriately to the record-setting showcase.
