Torres vs. Johnson Wiki Update Wiki

The second UFC 130 bout to air on the Spike TV preliminary card featured Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson taking on Miguel Angel Torres in a bantamweight contest. Torres, the former WEC bantamweight champion, came into the bout 7-2 in combined WEC and UFC competition. Johnson came in at 3-1 in his prior WEC and UFC fights.


Johnson came out landing low kicks and using his speed to get in and out. Torres clinched up looking for knees but was taken down by Johnson. In a beautiful sweep Torres ended up on top in half-guard, then patiently made his way to side control. Johnson pulled Torres back into full guard after a struggle, but then Johnson made his way back to side control. "Mighty Mouse" swept and almost got top position, but the slick Torres attacked for a leg lock and forced Johnson to get up to his feet and out. Johnson dove back into Torres's guard, but Torres was immediately attacking and in a thrilling set of scrambles the first round came to an end.


Johnson came out and immediately attacked with another low kick. Johnson landed a takedown but Torres wasted no time in threatening with a triangle choke and using that to sweep and force Johnson up to his feet. Johnson took the fight down again, and Torres momentarily worked for an inverted triangle choke, yet not feeling it was close enough let go of the position. Torres worked hard off of his back to sweep or set up submissions, yet it was Johnson who maintained top position for most of the frame.


Johnson threw a big overhand right and came forward to land a takedown. Torres tied up the arms and nearly was in position for an armbar, but Johnson's excellent defense allowed him to escape and stay on top. Torres pulled off another brilliant sweep, ending up in full mount. Johnson got his way back to guard. Torres attacked for a guillotine choke, Johnson escaped, and the intense matchup came to a close.


All three judges scored the bout 29-28 in favor of Demetrious Johnson, in what was certainly the biggest win of his career to that point.
