Demetrious Johnson

Demetrious Johnson is a UFC fighter in the flyweight category. He was born on August 13, 1986 and is from Parkland, WA, a suburb of Tacoma. He was raised by a single mom, who is deaf, alongside his brother and sister. Johnson’s nickname in the ring is Mighty Mouse. He became the UFC’s first, and so far only, flyweight champion in September 2012. Prior to joining UFC, Johnson saw success in World Extreme Cagefighting as a bantamweight. He attended Pierce Community College, but didn’t complete his associates degree, choosing instead to train in fighting. In June 2017, Johnson released a scathing statement about “UFC’s mistreatment and bullying” and claimed the organization’s president Dana White threatened to cancel his category.

Johnson is married to wife Destiny and they have two sons, Tyren and Maveryk.
