Mighty Mouse anything but boring

Demetrious Johnson won like a warrior Saturday night at UFC on FOX 8 — and celebrated like a ballerina.

Johnson defended his UFC flyweight belt Saturday night against John Moraga with a fifth-round submission via armbar. Then he did his usual victory dance, which is more Alvin Ailey than Ali.

Oh yeah, and Johnson's nickname is Mighty Mouse. Can you believe Moraga knocked him for being “boring”?

“It didn’t bother me at all,” Johnson said. “My job at the gym is to train to finish. In the fifth round, I knew I was ahead on the scorecards, but I never just relax and try to coast. My job is to finish.”
