What started off as a four-man flyweight tournament last March has now come down to two men vying for the UFC strap. Benavidez punched his way into the finals with a second-round KO of Yasuhiro Urushitani, while Johnson had a more difficult road, fighting a two-bout series with Ian McCall where he ultimately emerged victorious.
A place in the UFC record books is on the line as Benavidez and Johnson are scheduled to clash in a five-round affair from the Air Canada Center in Toronto on Sept 22.
