UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson sent a mass reaction across social media platforms Saturday night when he became the first fighter to ever finish Joseph Benavidez in the main event of UFC on FOX 9.
Johnson earned a knockout with a stiff right hand around the two-minute mark of the second round. He followed up with some strikes on the ground before the referee could step in.
Twitter, for one, exploded over the victory:
